NaNo Day 18 – Back At It!

Number 18

 

Here is late afternoon going into early evening. I was short of the minimum word count yesterday but I hope to get some writing done today. I have decided to write long hand for change. There comes a time when you just get tired of staring at a computer screen. At least I do. So I am going to be stepping away for a bit. I’m sure it won’t be long before I am back. You know, the whole internet withdrawal thing. lol.

Seriously though, my story is coming along really well. There is about to be a major scenery change for my characters in which they will not only have to cope, but this change will bring about opportunities in their lives they may not have had otherwise. But a question remains, will one of the twin boys make it to the new place (Memphis), stay behind, or die in an accident before the move? Hmmm. Something I have yet to figure out!

NaNo day 17 – Almost Made It

Number 17

Well, I didn’t make the word count last night.  I wrote just over 1,100 words and went to take a break I was planning to be back from. Ha!!! Guess what…I fell asleep and when I woke up it was after midnight!! Nooooo!!!! Arrrr!

I was so close. Just few hundred words more and I would have made the minimum count. I’m feeling rather bummed right now. I had a personal goal to at least meet the minimum everyday, even if  I was ahead, and I failed to do that yesterday. I really needed to keep this goal because I know next week my daughter ill be off from school and I’ll be cooking some food the day before Thanksgiving and the day of Thanksgiving!

I’m exhausted thinking about it.

Well, I hope I’ll be able to make up that 600 words in addition to the 1667 I’ll have to write for day 18.

For now I have to be off to bed.

Night all.
