NaNo Day 14 – Finish Line…Well For Today

Number 14


NaNo Day 14…

I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but thankfully, with God by my side I did it again. I surpassed the minimum word count again! It was tricky at one point because I thought I was going to have to remove a character that was giving me so much trouble I wanted to scream at him! lol. But I chatted with another NaNoWriMo friend via IMVU and she helped me figure it out. Really all she needed do was listen until I rambled myself into a solution! Doesn’t it usually happen that way?

So now I am keeping the character in the book, but something unexpected is going to happen to him. It will be something unexpected to me because I don’t even know what is going to happen! I will find out when he does.

Total word count for end of today: 27,655

NaNo Day 14 – Pre Writing Prep Work

Number 14


Well here we are on NaNo Day 14. Last night I printed off my proposed seven chapters. I say proposed because I have a feeling chapters and their division areas will change.  I plan on reading over those, making notes, or additions, where necessary just to fill in the timeline gaps and help me get a better mental picture of the events I need to happen. Hopefully, this will help me get an idea of where I need to be writing this evening.

But for now, it is time to take the dogs out, stop at the post office, and then drop my daughter off at school.

Good luck everyone and God bless!

NaNo Day 13 – I Made It!



Oh, man! Did I have a rough time last night. As I was writing I ran into several areas of the story I had written in previous days had some holes in the time line of events that if not fixed really would mess up the upcoming timeline for what I have yet to write. Then on top of that, some of the story I had already written for yesterdays word count was like gone so I had to figure out how to remedy that.

Thanks be to God for pulling me through last night and helping me figure everything out!!! He is so awesome to work with and I couldn’t have done it without Him!!!

Current Word Count: 25,532

NaNo Day 13 – Frustration Setting In



Okay, today is proving to be one frustrating day with my story. My writing is going pretty well, that’s not the problem. The problem is the more I write and just let the story go, I am seeing it go in several directions and one character I need to carrying through the story to get to a pivotal point with another character is not being carried through the story. Ugh!!

I’m getting a tension headache. I am trying to figure something out before my writing session in a couple of hours. I really would hate to have to go through seven chapters and try to figure this out, but if I don’t, I’m worried my story is going to lose a pivotal point in the plot it really needs.

Another thing that is making this story difficult, is I have based my main male character off from a very notable person in music history and I’m using some names of places and events in this person’s past, but I’m scared of getting anything too close because this person, though passed away, has an enterprise with his name on it and I don’t want to step on any legalities.

I’m feeling quite overwhelmed right now and wish I had a sounding board! I so need one! Anyone else get stuck in the middle of NaNoWriMo with story issues that can halt progress? What do you do about it? Do you talk to another writing buddy? Pray? What helps you?

I know God is helping me so I’ll figure it out.

Well, off to the kitchen for dinner and then dessert. Then kiddo to bed and writing time.

Good luck everyone!

NaNo Day 12 – Made It!

Number 12


Yawn!! Finally, I can get to bed. Wrote over 2200 words today for a total word count of 23,378! Yay!

I’m getting to a part in the story I am not sure what is going to happen next. It shall be interesting to see how the story unfolds. That is one reason I don’t use an outline. I generally like surprises so long as they don’t mess up my story too much. 🙂 My main character Wesley has just lost a dear friend and mentor and must decide on how to go about his musical career on his own. Wesley is only twelve right now and has some time to plan. But I am not sure what I am going to have happen after his friend’s funeral. hmmm….

Well, I am off to bed. Good luck to those who are still writing and awesome job for those who have written their word count today!

See you in the AM!

NaNo Day 12 – Almost There!

Number 12


Well, here it is about 5:30PM Eastern time and I have almost the days word count in. But I had to take a break a while ago to give my daughter a bath and then both dogs a bath. Now it’s time for dinner and dessert.

Writing time is coming soon! I hoping surpass my usual word count but we’ll see. Really looking for a day I can write 3000 words. Maybe that’s asking too much, lol!

It’s amazing how we start out trying to reach the goal of 1667 words and then after we reach that with no problem we push ourselves a little more and then a little more. It sure becomes addicting!

Well, off to get the evening routine going.

Back later.
