Question

It's October 15th, and time to ask that question that's been nagging at me...

So, is anyone participating in NaNoWriMo this year?

I believe I've actually signed up for it. 0_o I don't know yet if I'll be following their guidelines to the letter, but it'd be nice to know if anyone else is also doing it, or has done it, etc.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] tasllyn suggested we leave our NaNo names so we can keep track of each other's progress and motivate one another, so go ahead and do that if you want!

Seeing as some of the ideas post comments suggest writing nonfiction, guidebooks, textbooks from a fantasy world, etc, I thought I might bring these links up.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/index.htm is an archive with a vast selection of texts, mostly about religion and mythology from Asia to Europe to North and South America. Just scroll down and all the categories are on the left sidebar. They have texts from the Bible, on sexuality, on evil, on Paganism, and, for some reason – the Necronomicon. Useful if you’re planning to study/imitate different styles, etc.

And, there’s always Bartleby.com with references, some poetry and some short stories and texts, and even Chapman’s Homer (The Odyssey, rather).

Enjoy! (I hope I used the right tag.)

I’m procrastinating. And what better place is there to that than in Talechasing?

So, I’ve got a rather odd and random question.

Musings on point of view )

What do you think? What kind of advantages or disadvantages do first-person narratives offer? Or any other points of view, actually, since I’m rambling and not being clear...Do you prefer telling stories in one point of view? Do other viewpoints allow the same degree of ‘internalizing’ (or, to make that clearer, immersing a reader into the character’s mind)?

I’ll stop babbling now ;)

(Oh, and, I'm not sure which tags to use, if any. Tell me and I'll edit?)
