Mala is a college student who pretty much constantly lives in her head. She has been a NaNovelist ever since her seventh grade year, but hasn't officially hit 50,000 words yet (she hit her personal goal of 25,000 in 2007, though!). She has a tendency to lean towards fanfiction especially for NaNovel season, if only because it's easier for her to throw together a fanfic in a short period of time than an original story. She's slightly embarrassed about this, but, well, there it is. However, she has set out to change this trend!
Wish her luck.
This year, she hopes to successfully write the full 50k in a proper story.
NaNo '04: Hitsuzen: Final Eclipse, a Kingdom Hearts fanfiction. 'Nuff said, amirite? Personal goal: 10k. Words written: 10,110.
NaNo '05: All That and a Biscuit, original, set in a high school based off mine. About a girl struggling with her sexuality after falling for a girl upperclassman. Personal goal: 15k, probably. No record of my word count.
NaNo '06: Once Upon a Dolly, original 'modern' fantasy, set on an alternate Earth. I still plan stories for this world. NaNo '07: Keep Your Lantern Burning, half-original, half-fanfic. Basically, I took the characters that live in my head and wrote about their daily lives and stuff. This is the one that somehow hit 25k.
NaNo '08: I Would Like to Say Everything, half-original, half-fanfic. I tried to emulate KYLB and failed horribly. I didn't get very far, hahahaha.
NaNo '09: In A Weary World, half-original, half-fanfic-ish. The setting was a world where magic centered around change, and the story revolved around a little girl making connections with people from her dead father's past. Personal goal: 25k. Words written: 20,766.
NaNo '10: Action is the Anecdote, original. Haphazardly tossed together last minute, and between college and life striking with hammer blows of "you don't get to write this year," I'm afraid I let my WriMos down and failed miserably.
