I did a good job catching up that first week but it was all downhill from there this year. I manged to write 11912 words altogether. My plan is to finish up the story for my niece and nephews before it’s time to go on next year’s beach vacation. That way they’ll have something to… Continue reading Final NaNoWriMo 2013 Update
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo this year? I have 5982 words written so far. It seems like most everyone I know is behind on the word count this year. 🙂
It happened. I survived another year of NaNoWriMo. I spent most of December 1st sleeping as I was so exhausted. Life is getting back to normal and you should see me return to a regular posting schedule. My mistake this year was completely pantsing it. All I had was a concept. It wasn’t enough to keep… Continue reading NaNoWriMo is Over!
It’s almost time for NaNoWriMo and I’ll be doing it again this year. (Last year I took a break.) This past weekend was full of writerly activities to help get me pumped for it. The online speculative fiction writer’s conference, Coyote Con, returned. Saturday I attended “The End of the World – Apocalyptic Fiction”, “Gaming… Continue reading Writerly Weekend
This month I’ve been busy taking an editing workshop. It’s been a wonderful experience and has forced me outside my comfort zone. For the past few years I’ve done NaNoWriMo and I’ve “won” more often than not. It’s given me confidence in completing a long writing endeavor and it’s given me the courage to write and… Continue reading Editing is Scary!

I’ll not keep you in suspense and let you know I won. 🙂 I have a short attention span when it comes to just sitting down and writing. My mind wanders. But put me in a room with other people writing and the words usually flow. This last week I had the good fortune to… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2010 Check-in #4
I’m a few days late in my NaNoWriMo check-in. Sorry! I had Friday off work and that was my best writing day this year. In the afternoon I went to a write-in at Colin’s Coffee. It’s a long space with a counter and several tables. Shopping center employees and other regulars came in for their… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2010 Check-In #3
Today my husband will arrive home from work after I do. Tonight’s plan is to get dinner on the way home, take the Resident Corgi for his evening stroll, eat dinner and get down to business. The current word count is at 12048 which almost 15k below where I should be to stay on target for the… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2010 Check-In #2
I decided this year to do another draft of my 2008 project titled Three Girls, a Corgi and a Dead Body. The new working title, which I’m not so crazy about, is The Fairy Book Guardians. It makes me think of Guardian by Katie Hines and The Storm Guardians. I’m about to start my writing… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2010 Check-In #1
