What are we talking about today?

See those themes down there? Ignore those during November. For NaNoWriMo, you get my first and last sentences written that day (typos and all!), plus a word count update. Enjoy!
What are we talking about today?

Tuesday: Books.
Wednesday: Transportation (think walking, bikes, buses--I like to mix it up).
Thursday: Theatre.
Friday: Green living. Sometimes green-ish. I do what I can.

If it seems sad around here, that's because I'm recently widowed and sometimes sadness pours out of me whether I like it or not. There's always a chance I'll be happier tomorrow.

30 November 2012


I gave myself a real fright this year, thinking I wasn't going to make it. But with 25 hours to spare:

Heck yeah, zero excuses. Here's what my stats look like:

If you look closely, you'll see there are only six days when my word count peeked over the par bar even a little bit. Today will be the seventh day (ha, ha), since I'm past 50K already. I still have one final chapter to write, and I hope that nabs me another thousand or so words before midnight. This will be the first time in my three years that the story is done when the month is done. 

Will I revise? No idea. I'll make that decision after my grad papers are all finished and I'm a little bit bored. (HA! Unlikely...)

Did you do NaNoWriMo? How did you do? Or did you do something else super-fun in November?

Woo! Good for you! I notice you did almost 9500 words on the last day--very impressive. Go take a break and let your fingers rest for a little while :)

Thanks! :) I'm taking a break from writing for fun... to write my grad paper.

I failed big time. But I don't even feel bad about it. My heart just wasn't in it this year.

Su Wilcox said...

Hey, as long as you don't feel bad about it, it's all good. :) Well done for doing it!

Definitely no Nano for me. I'm a slow and steady type of writer. Hopefully either style pays off for both of us!
