Printed Manuscript

1129160758

That’s it folks! This is the printed first draft of my NaNo novel. I’m letting sit for a few days and I’ll start planning a new novel before I do any read-throughs of my manuscript. Need to give my brain a break on that one for now. Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch more errors when I go back to it.

I don’t know where you live, but here in Maine there frost most every morning so it was cold waiting for the bus to pick up my daughter. For me this is just the kind of weather to be working on a novel. Or reading a book to help inspire me. Reading always makes me want to write and writing makes me want to read. lol Too bad I can’t do both at the same time. Then I’d be set.

Well, I’m off to walk on the treadmill and start that next novel which is tentatively titled 1977.

Before I go, if you have a finished manuscript I would love to see pictures of it. If you can, leave a picture in the comments or send them to jisoucie@hotmail.com

Good luck everyone.

NaNo Winner!

Okay so it was about 25 days ago since I made my last post. That’s how focused I’ve been since NaNo started. I usually start out with participating in NaNo but never end up finishing  it. This year even with a 9 month old I was able to do it. My little guy was so good in the mornings he would just sit in his jumper and play while I wrote my word count for the day. But often he was so good I just kept writing until he needed me. I was able to get ahead some days and boy did that pay off.

There are still four days left of NaNo! I can’t believe it! If you finished your novel already congratulations! If you’re still plugging away at it keep going you’ll get there. I know you ! With that fierce determination a writing has there’s no doubt you’ll sail to the finish line.

So those of you who have finished, are you still updating your word count or are you taking a breaks from writing? I’d love to hear what you’re up to now. Even though I have reached the word count for the month I am still motivated to plug away. So that’s where I’m off too.

Have a wonderful day/night everyone!

NaNo is Here!

Today is the day to start busting out those words and starting the path to the goal of 50,000 words at the end of the month. Write more if you dare! I’m off to a good start having started at 5AM Eastern Time. As a busy mom I have to take moments where I can. It’s in those mini moments I am able to make even the slightest advantage on my word count. It’s cool outside so why not be inside cranking out your novel.

Have you started writing already? Do you have daily goals set other than the one NaNo puts on for daily word counts? I try to make sure I do the minimum word count but if I get more in a day than that’s awesome!

Well, I must go and get my daughter ready for school and then hopefully I will have another moment in time where I can get a few more hundred words in.

Best of luck to you all you writers out there!
