NaNoWriMo 2015, day 30/30

Monday, November 30th, 2015

Aw yeah, crossing the finish line on day 30! While this year’s novel failed to live up to it’s file name (fastestnovelever2015), I am happy to report a purple winner bar as of this morning. Thanks for another great year, nanowrimo! (Story will go up once I figure out how many italics tags I missed.) […]

nanowrimo sprint to the finish

Friday, November 27th, 2015

I don’t know about anyone else, but Monday (back to work after a four-day weekend, starting the run-up to Christmas) is not a day I want to count on to be a 1667 word day. I’m keeping it in reserve as an emergency finishing day, but my goal is to reach 50,000 by midnight Sunday. […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

day 25, still not king

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Me at 10,000 words: That wasn’t so bad! ::cheery wave:: Just got to do that four more times. Yeah, I got this! By the time I get to 40,000 that last 10,000 will be a breeze! Me at 40,000 words: PAST SELF YOU WERE A LIAR!

Current word count: 38,856 Current problem: I never actually figured out the macguffin of this story, assuring myself that it would somehow all fall into place. Now I’m at the moment where it really should be doing that, and it’s all ::crickets:: Current solution: ignore the problem?

nano Monday #4

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

Well, here we are. Monday #4. With eight days (and about 13,000 words) left to go, this is that point in the month where I look at what I’ve written and think: “What a bunch of crap.” On the other hand, there sure is a lot of it! It’s also the point in the month […]

where has my go gone?

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Eked over the line to 35,000 last night right before midnight — kinda worried about what actually happened in the last 300 words or so, since I kept falling asleep. They ate food? Talked about food? IDK what’s even happening anymore. Sadly, it’s already 9:30 and my get up and go seems very limited today. […]

nanowrimo, day 21

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

The quest for words continues. Current word count: 33,138 Goal by the end of today: 35,000 I really, truly intended to reach 33,500 last night, but then I fell asleep and had a crazy dream in which the cat got out in the backyard at home and started transforming into a bunch of different animals, […]
