NaNo day 3, whoopee!

I'm happy to say I'm 5000+ words down and going strong. I love "pantsing" this novel, because I'm getting so much more out of it than I thought I would... already! I KNOW! Characters are cropping up and plots that I hadn't counted on... now if I can manage to keep up this very steady pace I'll be pretty pleased. Who knows where we'll end up?

Also, I wrote a scene today that really stretched me. I won't go into detail, suffice it to say it was horror-esque... and I danced around it and didn't really commit. I'm not satisfied with it yet, but... that's what the editing process is for!

Ok... it's very late, and I've spent far too long playing Plants vs. Zombies again (my reward for making my count).

Go go NaNo buddies Go! You can do this!

the beach she had left behind something she could never
bring herself to forget."

  3. YAY!! Glad you're meeting your goals and having fun! You are awesome!

  4. I have not done work on my current project in months but am planning to pick it back up when I'm home from school for Thanksgiving Break.

    Whenever I hear another writer talking about meeting their goals I'm guiltily reminded of the fact that I'm 2/3 of the way through my own book.


What's on your mind? I wanna know!
