NaNo Update -- and BEDTIME!


Marilyn needs to be up early in the morning, so I'm now rushing. (It's just past midnight here. I could have probably written all night long, as I was 'on a roll'...)

I think I'll probably finish tomorrow.

But CONGRATULATIONS go to Marilyn mistressmarilyn, who finished before midnight on Sunday, November 27. How impressive is that???

But, hey, I wrote more than 7,000 words today, folks. Not bad, huh?

Goodnight, all!

NaNo Update (Monday -- #1)


There are officially three (3) days left of NaNoWriMo for 2005!

What an interesting month this has been...

It's now around 10:30 here and I just finally had my breakfast (back to oatmeal again) and another cup of (lukewarm) coffee.

Marilyn mistressmarilyn had to be at work early today, so I did get an early start on finishing up my NaNo novel. The current word count is:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
49,014 / 50,000
(98.0%)

Which basically means I've written around 2,000 (under by a couple hundred words) words so far this morning.

1,000 left to go to complete my 50,000 word goal. (Yes, there's no question I'll finish today.)

Collapse )

The premise of my novel really lends itself to a series of books, which takes me back to when I read the Judy Bolton and Nancy Drew books (among many others). There's just something about a series of children's books that tends to draw me, I suppose...

Have I mentioned that I'm 'in love' with my characters? (I am!)

Well, back to writing!
