finis, #2.

NaNoWriMo is finished … and I barely scraped through. Thank you so much for your encouragement throughout this month. I can’t say that I’m completely happy with the product, but, hey! It’s a first draft. Next month, we’re getting into the holidays and the end of the year (time to get out the Pentatonix Christmas … More finis, #2.

It is November 1st, which means that I’m not only going to be busy with school and knitting, but also with NANOWRIMO!!! WHO’S WITH ME!!! No one? Okay … Aside from a few random updates, I’m going to be laying low (or is that lying low? Sorry, writer’s brain) for a bit. Until the month … More monk mode.

I’m about to do something that I’ve never done before, … More day 1: beginning.

But then, I realised that I had added everything up correctly, and I am now finished with NaNoWriMo. Yes! When the whole thing finally clicked in my brain, I suddenly … More finis.

almost there.

Less than ten thousand words to go! (Well, if you examine the screenshot above, you’ll see that I have exactly 6,298 words left.) I’m really excited about this. As I’m writing this thing, I can see that it’s easy to compare this writing thing to the main character of my novel. (NOTE: I haven’t really … More almost there.
