NaNoWriMo Update

Exciting news -- I have a new 'writing buddy'! A woman who lives right here in Oregon, out in Hillsboro. (Which means there's always the possibility of actually speaking with her on the phone, or even meeting her!)

She considerably further along with her novel, having completed almost 18,000 words to date. I'm nearing 10,000, though -- and in a mood to write!

Yes, if a person happens to be hung up on the daily-word-count method of doing this, on November 10 I should have been at 16,000 words. Frankly, I'll worry if I get to November 30 and I'm only at 30,000. (smile) But until that happens, I'm not worried at all.

On that note, I'll go knock off another 500 words so I can make my 10,000...

NaNoWriMo Update (#2)

Still working happily away! We're both sitting and typing on our novels, determined to put in some time on these puppies. (smile)

That puts me past 10,000 words (finally). I've also taken time to read several of Marilyn's mistressmarilyn chapters, which I've enjoyed tremendously. I've laughed out loud (literally!) repeatedly...

As I said to Marilyn, I feel it's a good sign that I'm so entertained by reading her work -- and my own -- that I frequently find myself laughing. (grin)

For those interested, I'll give you info under the cut for reading excerpts of our two novels...

The amazing Marilyn mistressmarilyn has almost caught up with my word count, no surprise to me! (I consider her a much faster writer than I am, in all honesty.) She's wavering on the edge of 10,000 words as I type this...
