NaNoWriMo Update

NaNoWriMo is suffering against awesome things like my brother's wedding and gadding about the country.
I'm currently at 18,426. And I've been doing crazy stuff like writing 6,000 in one sitting and dorky things like that. If it weren't for word wars, I might just be dead. I still haven't given up yet. Foolish...and hopeful.

That puts me at 40,814 total for this version of my novel.
When the document opens I don't stare sickly at it for a half hour before I start typing something like, "And then a volcano exploded, burying them all in its ash" or "Ramirez tactical genius was no match for the alien invasion. The world would not remember that night" previous versions. I think we're getting somewhere.

Ramirez is getting on my nerves and Lilly is so confused she confuses me...and I spent one cold night of guilt imagining Judvor's blood on the snow...but other than that, things are going all right.

According to's terrifying statistics I need to write 3,158 each day. Think I can make it?

Perhaps rambling thoughts on PA, poetry, and my bro's wedding to come.... Most likely silence while I write in other places.

I love following your blog. Something about your posts gives me this warmth inside, and inspires me to sit down with a cup of coffee and write a novel, myself. I am excited that you are doing NaNoWriMo- my cousin is doing it as well and it sounds exciting. I'd like to try it next time. Anyway, keep on writing- you have a beautiful way of wording things.

LOL! My writing progress isn't quite meeting up to my goals either. But better to fall short by a few thousand (or a few ten thousand) words, than to get nothing done at all, eh? :-) Good luck on catching up!
