Today is November 15th; we’re half-way through the month of November. I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year, but I have done it a couple of times in the past. The middle of the month can be a bit disheartening. The initial burst of enthusiasm has worn off but the finish […]

Back in October I wrote on this blog that I’d decided to do NaNoWriMo this year (depressingly that post is only three down the page from this one. (Must…write…more…blog…entries). Keen observers will note that although we are 2/3s of the way through November, no further mention of NaNo has been […]

I’ve decided to do it. Once I post it here, I can’t back down… So here goes nothing…. *click!*

I hit my 50K a few days ago, just as a bitch of a cold/flu bug was hitting. I barely remember those last words, but I got past the goal line and called it quits. It’s taken me since then to get to feeling well enough to post about the […]

After talking to some friends, and pondering the question myself, I’ve decided to downgrade my NaNo Wordcount Target from 60,000 to the ‘official’ 50K of NaNoWriMo. I’ve determined that 50,000 words in a month is more than enough for me. The story I’m telling won’t be finished at 50K and […]

Figured I’d better check in. I crossed the 40,000 word point today, which is pretty much right on schedule if I’m aiming for 60,000 words. Honestly though, I can’t wait for this to be over. No, this isn’t one of my whiny NaNo posts, though goodness knows there’ve been enough […]

It’s been a hectic couple of days and I haven’t found the time to get to the Novel. And that’s my fault, but it took my dear friend J to point that out to me. I continue to treat the novel as something I do when I have nothing else […]

And then sometimes, magic just happens. My Main Character and a Secondary sought refuge in the kitchen of a tavern today. There was a storm raging outside, and the Secondary is a little scared of storms so she started chatting, just to take her mind off things. And she ended […]

Want to know something say? I sat there and counted on my fingers to figure out what the Day # was for this post… instead of, y’know, looking at a calendar. Today was a bitch but I got caught up. And I had a few sessions that exhibited signs of […]

So, no progress on the NaNovel today. It’s depressing to see that ‘words behind’ number grow, let me tell you. But I realized I was so fractured that I wasn’t getting anything done because I was trying to do everything at once. So tonight instead of NaNoing I finished up […]
