NaNoWriMo is over

I did not finish NaNo this November which I am bummed about. (Not surprised though). I did get down over 10,000 words in the month.

Passed the halfway point

I now have over 50,000 words for my book. That means I’m half-way there assuming an end of 100k. Feeling accomplished, but moving forward. It’s a good possibility that I will not be making the 50k word count for NaNoWriMo(Writing in month of November only). But, I have no doubt I will exceed 10k words … Continue reading »

I’m coming for you, book in my head.

The month of October I attempted to work at least 2 hours a day on my book. I am happy to say, I exceeded that goal for the month.

Of course, I will interject that I still have roughly 60,000 words to go, give … Continue reading »

Week going well!

On just Tuesday of this week and already ahead of schedule. I’m on track to easily make my 14 hour goal for this week. Also, I have been using Scrivener to write (highly recommended), and I decided to print off my chapter note cards and lay them out on the ground. It really helped me … Continue reading »

Progress Report

This week proved to be more challenging to write than I thought. Schoolwork is overwhelming and continues to push writing to the back of my mind which is extremely frustrating. The more I work on my book, however, the more I believe that this is what I should be doing with my life. I’m 34 … Continue reading »

Weekly Goal and Website

I am a little behind on my writing goal for the week, but think I can make up the difference on the weekend. I did get a few things figured out with my outline and decided I need another character’s POV. Since none of my current characters fit this, I am fleshing out a new … Continue reading »
