NaNo Day 19 – Slumped Again

Number 19

I didn’t make my word count for day 19! I wrote 759 words which is still much better than nothing. I guess fighting a cold is just wearing me out. I fell asleep at my computer again!!! Grrr!

So yeah, I guess sleepiness is an issue, yet I go to bed and don’t sleep well because I didn’t get my full word count in.

I am wondering if part of the reason I have been falling asleep at my computer is that I am bored, or dread sitting at it and typing. I think I need to change it up a bit and write long hand. Yeah, I did mention it in one of my last posts and did have the intentions of doing it, but never did. This time, I mean it. I have everything set to do so. I have never written long hand for NaNo before so we’ll see how things go.

How are you doing on your word count? Any tips or tricks you’ve discovered to help yourself though NaNo?

NaNo Day 19 – Keepin’ On

Number 19

NaNo Day 19…ugh! My mind is running a big sluggish at the moment. It would seem I caught my daughter’s cold. I’ve had  a sore throat for a few days and this morning when I tried to talk my voice would crack. So I’ve been feeling more run down than usual, but it won’t stop me from trying to reach my word count.

I have dinner to go make, then usual nighttime routine before my writing time begins. Last night both twins made it to Memphis. The unexpected event I had thought was going to happen has not happened yet. Really need to make something happen here.

I feel like my story is dragging a bit before I get to the bigger events. I can’t focus too much on that right now though. That will have to come with the editing later.

I’m off for now. Dinner time!

NaNo Day 17 – Rockin’ N’ Rollin’

Number 17

 

It’s toward that time of night for me! NaNo writing session #17! I already have some ideas in my head I need to input into a couple of chapters. Then I will continue writing where I left off last night.

So far today, no birds flying into the windows and it’s not likely to happen now that it is dark out. Phew! lol. Looking like a pretty calm night.

Time for dinner, little family time perhaps, and then daughter off to bed. Then, prayer before writing and then writing time!

God bless you all on your writing journey!

NaNo Day 16 – Managed!

Number 16

 

Here we are it is 11:34PM Eastern time and I just finished writing 1,766 words for the night. I so cannot do more. I can barely keep my eyes open after the busy day I had.

Total word count now is: 31,847

My characters are about to undergo one dramatic change that will affect all of their lives, some for the better, some for the worst.

Must get off to bed before I fall asleep in my chair!

Night all and God bless!

NaNo Day 16 – Gimping Along

Number 16

I must admit. Tonight is starting off quite slowly…er…well really I haven’t started at all. It has been a long day.

Was up at 7 and then while eating breakfast there was a loud BANG! on my front window. I look up and see this plume of feathers everywhere. A bird flew into the window, but I knew it had to be a bit one for the sound of the impact. Surprised my window was cracked!

I went outside and looked around and didn’t see the bird at first. When I turned to go back inside there he was. Laying on the ground was a partridge, breathing, but clearly out of sorts and confused at what happened. So I go back inside and call the Maine Game Wardens to figure out what I should do. I was told to wait an hour to see if the bird came back around and if he/she did, and did not injure anything, it would fly off on it’s own. So I wanted and checked on the bird about an hour later and as soon as it saw me, it flew off. Good ending there!

Shortly after that it was off to the vet for two dogs. One was up to date on shots, the other needed everything. Got that done and then picked up a friend from church and brought her home to spend the day with us. We enjoyed good food and watched Garfield: The Movie which we all loved! I can never get enough of Garfield! lol.

It wasn’t until about 7:30 or so when we got back home after taking our friend back to her place. It is after 9PM Eastern.

Listening to Pandora and Elvis is singing “Suspicious Minds”. Perfect time period music for my story.

Hmm Well, I guess I should go and get writing.

I just want to say, “Thank you. Thank you very much.” for reading along! 🙂

NaNo Day 13 – I Made It!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

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 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!
