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.
Unfortunately, because of that sometimes bothersome beast known as NaNoWriMo, I’m not able to do much else on the interwebs during the month of November. Once I’m done writing for the day, I’m tired of staring at a screen and I just want to knit and ignore everything else. You’ve probably heard about Wovember, and … More craft store reconnaissance: wovember.
Tomorrow marks the halfway point of this NaNoWriMo. While I won’t bore you with details or anything, it is coming along, little by little. I had a terrible start (I actually scrapped the novel I was working on on the first week), but the whole thing is picking up speed. Still a bit behind, but … More halfway NaNo’d out.
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.
Eskimimi’s challenge for today is to blog in a different way than you’ve ever done before. So, I wrote up a blog post. I added captions if you cannot read my handwriting. 🙂
This day’s post is supposed to be about the blogger, in this case, me. What do I say about myself? I don’t know. I guess that one of the most obvious aspects in my life at the moment is the thing that this blog is centered around. I really love knitting. The knitting obsession started … More 2: beginnings.
Last year, when Eskimimi Makes’ 5th annual Knitting and Crochet Blog week rolled around, I could participate, as it happened before I found out about it. This year, however, I’m going to be doing a post every day in accordance with the topics Eskimimi has chosen for this year. If you would like to participate, … More blog week.
[All names have been changed to protect privacy.] We sit in Chick-fil-a, eating in near silence. The Last Supper. I’m excited, and a little bit sad, and my mouth hurts from the new wire that the orthodontist put in my braces a few minutes before. I’m about to do something that I’ve never done before, … More day 1: beginning.
When I added in my word count on nanowrimo.org, my first thought was, Man, that’s just way too many words. I haven’t written that many! 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.
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.
