I originally had the 'A' sound in mind for r'EI'ves, but apparently many thinks of it as "Reeves" from that spelling - So I think "ae" is better if you want an A sound.

Well, in Reivier I always think of it as a long a, but for some reason in 'Reives' I think of 'Reeves." Maybe it depends on context? Tee-vin is just stupid sounding, and I could have spelled it Teevin if I wanted that. Because I REALLY like that 'o' and Taevon is really weird looking.

If it's fantasy, Taevon is a great spelling. If your story is set in the real world, that looks too...fantasy-ish. I personally like spellings that look like a fantasy name (thayne instead of thane, ect). Another possible spelling would me Tayvn. But your ae spelling is cool.

BTW, if any of you are doing this, what's your username? I want to see your story, and add some people to my buddy list, XD (mine is Legacyblade)

I'm not sure this will make it very far, as I REALLY don't have time to get anywhere near that many words, plus I only need three pages for the extra credit. There aren't any words yet, even. Stil fairly early pre-writing stuff. (I have to figure out what that cliche prophecy is XD)

If you don't want to publish the novel, just write. Don't plan beforehand. This is called discovery writing. And if you start now, just give yourself a daily quota of words you have to write. I have hardly ANY free time, yet I've set a schedule and am going to keep it. Though I do have an advantage, and have been planning this story, writing practice scenes, attempting to write it, and fleshing out the characters since early june. But you can make a great story without planning it, you'll just need to do more in the revision stage (AFTER november). Or maybe you could do a Quintessence-TBV fan novel, aka write a novel of what happens in Quintessence. If you don't hit 50,000 words by the time you get to the end of chapter 9, then just speculate about what happens after that, XD

Nah, I'm passing this year. Maybe next year. I have serious enough time management issues as is. But I DO feel like I need to have a plot, in case I feel like picking up the story later on.

Well then, might as well get some practice and writing lectures in. I recommend listening to all, or at least most, of the podcasts on this site.

(Necropost, ahoy!)

I've participated in NaNoWriMo 2007 and 2008, and actual won the latter! Now it's 2010, and I'm at it again. I'm not sure how it's gonna go (I'm not worried about running out of story, just out of time!).

Anyone else gonna NaNo it up this year?
