Archive for November, 2016

Last year I was so good about writing multiple times during NaNo. It rather kept me going, you know, feeling like people were enjoying keeping up with my progress, whether it was true or not. 🙂 This year. Well, I got a very good start, as you know. And I was actually quite good at continuing. I was ahead in my word count almost the entire time, until last Sunday. Then I was out late and woke up sick Monday morning and everything went downhill from there. A week later and I’ve not written a word. On the up side, I am finally feeling well again. Mostly, anyway. I am at my in-laws for the week, where I will now be attempting to balance teleworking with family time and writing. I was going to give up on NaNo. But two things are keeping me going:

  1. Daniel. Apparently he doesn’t think I should quit.
  2. Stubbornness. I just don’t like losing. So, I am going to keep trying.

Anyway – the short story thing seems to be going fairly well other than the previous week. It is nice to have shorter goals. To begin and end things fairly quickly. To increase my creativity by forcing myself to come up with multiple story ideas. I really feel like this will be good for me in more ways than one. Here is to hoping all of you other NaNo writers out there are doing better than I!

It is officially NaNoWriMo! So,to celebrate it,  I am sharing the November 1st NaNoToons – because they are the best. And, although I was up past midnight last night, no I did not start writing. But I don’t feel guilty. You know why? Because Daniel is bringing me to a wine/coffee bar tonight specifically to get a good start on this year’s book! I’m super excited about it. I think it will be a great time to get going, and I am going to trust that the words (and story ideas!) will come. I’m such a Pantser!

It’s November 1st! Huzzah! The writing has begun! Yes, I’ve changed the look again. I made it match the NaNoWriMo facebook cover. For those of you new to NaNoToons and don’t know who Mel and Tala are, their main arc started last year. I probably should explain all the characters. And update the cast page. […]
