Thanksgiving is over, and the turkey is dwindling, NaNoWri Mo is over.
Were you successful with the NaNo Challenge?
I wasn’t. I never expected to finish on time anyways. But I was fine with that.
After writing almost 15k words on The Dubious Heir I must say I kind of like how it is shaping out.
NaNo said I averaged about 400 words a day. I can live with that kind of average. It is a doable average. At that rate, I should be done with the first draft by the end of February. This story marks once again, uncharted waters. This is a story where the censoring filters are to be shut off. An Adults only story that I am writing for sheer fun.
I like trying new things. You never know what you might learn from just trying. Maybe a new concept, new idea, a different form of voice.
Writers are always evolving. Each new story can take them into another direction.
So, it’s been awhile since I last did ROW80 check-in. I can report a total of 400 words written for today. Most of my Christmas shopping is done – does that count? Oh right, writing, not wrapping and shopping. It is just one more distraction out of the way.
New goal, for the week. 400 words a day. If I try writing 400 words a day for a week, who knows maybe I will get back into the daily writing habit I had over a year ago. I just need to stay away from World of Warcraft if I want to succeed.
How about you? Did you finish your NaNo?
How about your Holiday Shopping?
There were some pretty decent deals over the past week.
I wonder what kind of deals they will have for Cyber Monday?
