Official NaNoWriMo 2007 Winner

And that says it all.

Now back to our previously scheduled life…

Week 3.

It’s been three weeks since NaNoWriMo started, and despite slacking off several evenings, I am well on track to finishing on time!  Hit 70% tonight, which translates to just over 35,000 words.  Whew.  And that’s with having to develop a whole new plot line, since the main plot just was not going to fill the full 50,000 words, and having to redraw the floor plan of Summerford Park.  I’m one of those writer’s who has to have maps and pictures and whatnot to be able to write properly, and the set-up I had for the house just was not cutting it.  I had to be careful though, since I love drawing house plans and could easily lose myself in them for hours on end.  Which is not something I have time to do right now.

Well, my eyes are crossing, so I’m going to go crash.  Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!


25,067 baby!

Past the half-way mark!

And now we shall do the dance of joy!

I have hit the lofty heights of 20,000 words as of 3 a.m. Woohoo!!! At this rate I shall be half done by Tuesday!

Now I have to go finish packing ‘cuz I’m heading out to WV tomorrow. Hope I can keep up the 2,000 a night whilst out there.

Happy writing to all of you!

I Think I Can, I Think I Can…

I did it. I got up the oomph to attempt NaNoWriMo again. I faltered a bit coming out of the starting gate. I originally started working on a book that I had only two scenes written in, and I thought if I didn’t count them in the word count it would be okay. But I still felt guilty since there’s not supposed to be any story written, so I started another one later that day. Despite that blurp, I’ve managed to meet my 2,000 word goal the past three nights. (Or rather mornings. Very early mornings. I tend to do my writing between 11pm and 2am.) I figure if I aim for 2,000 a day, I should have words to spare (since I’m not sure how NaNo’s counting and Word’s counting differ) by the 30th. Lord willin’ and the crik don’t rise.

Well, the only reason I have a moment to post is because I’m waiting for bread dough to rise before plopping myself in front of my laptop for this evening’s session. Don’t want to be interrupted by beeping timers.

Good luck to those of you who are also trying!
