"Remember, remember, the fifth of November,
the Gunpowder Treason and plot.
I know of no reason the gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot."
~ V for Vendetta
I'm not just posting this because it's the fifth of November, or even because it's a kickass movie that I'm probably going to watch during a writing break tonight. I'm posting it because the film had a huge influence on my current project, "Indigo."
This being the 5th full day of November, I thought I'd let you know that as I write this I've put over 14,000 words into my NaNoWriMo story so far. Not bad. I'm above the pace of 1,667 words a day and I'd like to keep it this way. And I'll share a little secret with you...
This NaNo thing?
It's pretty awesome! I'm having a blast dedicating hours of each day to JUST WRITING. It's freeing and frustrating and exciting and depressing all at the same time. And I'm only like a sixth of the way through the month!
But if you're more interested in what my story is actually about, well...I can't tell you. But I can share some more influential media with you, as follows:
Movies: V for Vendetta, Blade Runner
TV Shows: Big O (an anime series about giant robots in domed cities)
Games: Heavy Rain
Books: Hunger Games trilogy, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, We - sensing a controlling governmental overtone yet? Close, but not exactly
Music: Volbeat, Rise Against, Deadmau5
If you like any of the above slices of media, I'm sure you'll find at least something interesting about my current project. Look for an update same time next week and good luck to you other NaNo's out there! Keep it up!
