NaNoWriMo Update To The Update 11/26/13

This is a thing now.

I shall sleep.  The important thing is... I still gotta write.  The novel's barely half-finished.

NaNoWriMo Update 11/26/13

You know how you get down to the wire and then all of a sudden there's like 153 different things distracting you from getting something done?

Well, for me, not really.  I mean, I'm at 48,000-plus words with 4 days to go.  I ought to hit 50,000 words for NaNo sometime tonight.

As for a workable novel... well, yeah, it's gonna need editing...

NaNoWriMo Update 11/17/13

As of right now, I got to 40,000 words on the month, at a considerable fast pace getting to 50,000.

On the best part, I've finished one of the stories making up the anthology, which gives me a good feeling.  It was a doozy of the story too, which took a lot of time to finish up. The other stories shouldn't take as long in terms of time and words.

So, doing good.  How are you?

NaNoWriMo Update 11/14/13

I've gotten to 29,000 words last night, was hoping to reach an even 30,000 but felt too damn tired.

The story anthology idea has given me a lot of incentive in terms of getting me to finish the individual stories in their own time and pace.  I'm about done with one, still juggling 4 others with it, after which I can focus on one of those 4 and and continue on.

Getting the 50,000 word count will be easy this way.  Getting the stories I want in this anthology is proving to be trickier.  But that's what the editing process will be for...

NaNoWriMo Update 11/6/13

Currently left the word count at 14,000 or so words by November 5th.  I am technically a little ahead of the curve: last Saturday was a huge burst of writing that's gotten me this far.

The project itself is not a novel, but a collection of stories placed in a created universe.  I'm mostly in on one story at the moment, about 2/3rds done on it.  I've started four other stories that will make part of the anthology, and hope to have at least 8 of the stories completed to within the 50,000 word count for NaNo.  I may exceed it by adding another story or two.

But the key point is, I've got the groundwork set.  Now I've got to get the framework mount and the drywall placed.

I Miss Tehya and Page This Time Around for NaNoWriMo

I'm glancing about the room as I type, looking at the spots Tehya would be sitting while I worked on the laptop.

When I lived in New Port Richey doing the NaNo writings at home, I would be at the dining room table, and Page would on occasion hop onto the table and sniff around, working her way towards the laptop before I would pick her up and rub her belly until she would wriggle free and meow in frustration at me.  Tehya would usually find a spot underfoot and stay there.

I have no muse at the moment.  I must write now with a sad heart.

I miss my kitties.
