National Novel Writing Month Feed

And I did it again.....

This time I knew I was going to do it, though!  Last night it was getting late and I had to put the linens back on the bed, so I skipped posting here. Sorry about that.  I got all my usual Sunday things done yesterday and also went to the grocery store.  I started the month off right today by going to Starbucks! I got a peppermint white mocha and it was delicious! It was extra delicious today, actually.  Yum!  I didn't go anywhere else while I was out. I just went to Starbucks and then came home.

I wrote a lot yesterday (3813 words!) and I'm already a bit past 2500 for today.  I am going to try to add a little more to what I wrote today but I'm pretty happy with what I wrote.  I might go through and edit the last two days. It was two good writing sessions for those almost 7500 words!  If I wrote like this during NaNoWriMo I could do two books! I was on a roll yesterday. I had a big thing happen and it turned out well. I will go back and make sure I don't need to edit anything.  Today's writing was good too. I am going to see if I can't get a few more words as I mentioned.

My DS charger finally updated on the tracking.  It's been over a week since it updated at all!  It now says it is in Roanoke. This is usually the last stop before it gets to Danville. Normally, I would say with it being in Roanoke today, I will get my charger tomorrow, but with the way things are, I am scared to say it! The set of styluses that I got has been sitting in Raleigh NC since Wednesday of last week. Raleigh is only about 2 hours from my house. I know the USPS is slow lately, but come on!  Sheesh!  Anyway, I hope to get the charger and the I'll get to really play with it. I still haven't ordered a game.  I should have done that already. It will be April before I get one at this rate. :p

 


Is this Thursday?

It sure doesn't feel like a Thursday!  I had to check my computer to make sure it was Thursday! LOL!  I didn't sleep well last night and even with a nap this afternoon I'm still sleepy.  I didn't leave the house today but I did get some writing done. :)  I've been writing pretty much every day on my story.  I re-read the book I wrote for Camp NaNoWriMo over the last two nights.  It is the first book in a trilogy.  I wrote book two for this past NaNoWriMo.  I had forgotten some things I had written and I see some more things I need to fix.  I'll get around to that eventually.  I am not sure if I'll do book three for Camp this year or save it until November. I'm having a blast writing this other story, so I'll see how it goes. 

 


Goodbye November and NaNoWrimo!

It's hard to believe that tomorrow is December! I wrote a bit more for NaNoWriMo today and made it to 55,007 words!  I was happy to get there, too!  I will start back on my other story tomorrow.  I'm going to re-read it tonight so I can get back into it.  

I went out to do my recycling today and decided to go to the grocery store while I was out.  I didn't plan to go when I left the house, but then I just decided, what the heck. I went and got my groceries.  I have plenty of good things to eat and I have a lot of snacks, too! :p. I love to snack.  I almost went to Starbucks while I was out, but then I remembered that tomorrow was the first and I always like to go on the first. I don't have any money on my card at the moment, but I have enough stars for a free drink. That is what I'll use tomorrow. I hope to load a few bucks onto my card for December.  Starbucks For Life starts tomorrow!  Wish me luck. :p

It rained here last night and it was pretty heavy at times.  We had a flood warning go out today.  I have a weather alert radio.  I have it so that alerts are off.  It went off today!  I wonder if this is why whoever donated it to Goodwill did so! lol. It's gone off like this several times.  Luckily never when I'm sleeping.  It's so annoying and yes I check every time and it is still turned to OFF! Argh. Silly radio!


Hello from Sunday!

I finished my book today! I need to go back over the last few day's work and check it out.  I may need to add a few more things in, but it's pretty well done. I am almost at 55,000 words!  I might just write a few more and make it 55,000.  That would be neat. I am sure I have 800 more words I can add to it.  

I got my usual Sunday stuff done today, bed linen washed, hair washed, etc.  I also washed a bunch of dishes and put away a load of laundry that was in the dryer from yesterday.  I meant to put them away last night but I was so tired last night I didn't even think about it.  I want to write on my story that I've had on semi-hold since the beginning of NaNo.  I also need to create the December habit tracker and the week's speak for the first week of December.  I will either do that tonight or tomorrow.  It's in my bujo to do today, but I might wait and do it tomorrow.  It depends on if I get on a roll while writing or not.

 


Thanksgiving and NaNoWriMo

I didn't go out to anyone's house for Thanksgiving this year.  I did do my tradition and drove down the main 'drag' in my city to see everything closed. I do this twice a year, Thanksgiving night and Christmas night.  It's just something I've been doing for years.  I did that and I came home and wrote 1000 more words for NaNoWriMo.  I am close to the end of this book, I still have some words to go.  It's supposed to be the summer session at the academy where my skaters go. It's late August now so it won't be much more.  I would like to write at least a little bit every day leading up to the 3oth as I want to get the update everyday badge! :P  I may or may not work on my other story tonight. I'm not sure. I'm really tired so I might just relax for a bit.  I've been doing more recovery work and I think I have just about 99.8% of my stuff back so I'm happy about that.  I just need to get a new hard drive cable, install that and clone my drive.  That is going to be fun. @_@;


266 words.

That is the number of words I need to fulfill my goal of 50,000 words for this year's NaNoWriMo! I'm so happy!  I could probably get those in tonight but I was struggling to write today's portion because I started so late.  I will be well over 50,000 with tomorrow's word count.  I still have a bit of the story to tell, so it's going to be longer than 50,000 words but that is okay. It will still be finished by November 30th, though.  Then, I can devote myself full time to the story I started before NaNo. I have discovered a few other old fics that I would like to pull out and revise and continue on with so that is great. :) 

I am going to post this, get in my daily French lesson, and then just relax the rest of the evening. I didn't sleep well last night so I'm hoping to crash hard tonight!

 


47,728

That is my current word count on NaNoWriMo!  I'm only 2,272 words from 50,000!  My story won't be done in the next 2,272 words, but that is okay. I can write some each day until the end of NaNoWriMo!  I worked on my other story today too.  I was able to work on it first because I had a Write-in to go to tonight.  I can't believe my NaNoWrimo has progressed so well. I've hit at least 2000 words every day except one.  That day was 1928 words.  I don't know why I kept pushing myself to get 2,000 each day but I'm sort of glad I did.  I now can relax a little as I'm so far ahead and there is another week to go! The last day is Monday and there will be one last write-in that night. 


Sunday stuff

Bed linen is in the dryer waiting to be put back on the bed.  Laundry from yesterday is put away, hair is clean, a few groceries are purchased!  It's been a day.  I knew going to the grocery store the weekend before Thanksgiving would be chancy, but I did it.  It wasn't too bad and I only needed a few things.  I got those and got out of there! lol

I got my word count today for NaNo but I didn't write on my other story. I meant to!  I hope to get some done on it tomorrow. I'm waaaay ahead on Nano at the moment!  I am at 45,680 words!  The main trouble I had for my character hasn't even happened yet. D'oh! That was not going to be the main issue in any case. I may have it happen right near the end to make a cliffhanger for the third book.  I might not even have this drama and go with something else. We'll see.  Right now, it's still undecided.
