Just a quick ROW80 check-in today to update you on NaNoWriMo progress. Shingles has been hanging on like a kudzu vine so I’ve been hitting the pillow and the page with equal abandon. Halloween just wore me OUT!
Below is my Fairy Princess (who had an aaaah-mazing time). She is picking candy out of the bag to line up on the ground. Put it in…take it out…put it in…take it out…
She still doesn’t know she can eat it, but she sure does enjoy playing with it:
On the writing front:
I’m averaging just over 1200 words a day so far for NaNoWriMo, or about 5 pages a day. But I got THE JUICE today.
That’s that moment that comes in every writing challenge when the clunkiness of the words eases and creativity begins to float from you to the page. I was all fired up by the time I stopped this afternoon and it was awesome!
I’ll be back at it tomorrow, working to increase my daily total. I’m ahead of my personal goal of 4 pages a day, so I’m happy regardless, but I’d love to leave my shingles in the dust and just write my little face off.
Note #1: I hope all my NaNo friends have reached out to find me at jennyhansen - please do add me as your Writing Buddy…I need all the help I can get.
Note #2: If you’re like me, and you haven’t been on the computer as much since the month started, you’ll definitely enjoy a browse of Gene Lempp’s Writing Blog Treasures. He’s put together a fantastic collection! I had 8 tabs open by the time I got to the comment section.
How is your November going on the writing front (whatever challenge you’re doing)? Are the words flowing, or are you finding yourself stuck? Have you reached out to encourage all your ROW80 pals by going to the linky and clicking on their name? Enquiring minds LOVE to know these things here at More Cowbell!
