Winning NaNo... But the War on Writers Block Continues Ever On

Getting to 50,000 words is one thing.

For starters, you badge up. :)

 Just gotta figure how to add this to the blog template for permanent display... ;-)

But the novel itself is - even at 50,000+ words - halfway through.  I haven't even gotten to the breaking point for one of the main characters, and the climactic battle not yet in sight.  The month of December is gonna be both a continuing writing frenzy and a push to get the first draft (oh Lord is it rough) cleaned up for any half-decent publishing attempt.

The best thing is that there's a sense of accomplishment here.  Just gotta get past the next hurdle is all...

Last Week Of NaNoWriMo

The trick isn't to write a published novel right out of the gate.

The trick is to write something you can work with.  Get the ideas out there.  Create.

This week requires 11,000 more words out of me (I have fallen behind).  I want to get to 50,000.  I will achieve that moment...

NaNoWriMo Day 16: No Rest For The Weary

I did hit 25,000 words yesterday which is on pace for the 50,000 words needed for the month.  Now it's a question of exceeding the pace, both tonight as well as tomorrow (Saturday).

How is everyone else doing with their NaNo writing?  Anyone?  (p.s if you can't post a comment here lemme know, email me at p.warten AT gmail, okay?)
