NaNo Day 30 – I won!!!

Yep! I did it!!!! Man, I tell you I am sooo tired. I am seeing double trying to write this post right now. Exhaustion is taking hold.  I wrote over 50,000 words, but my story is not done yet! Good luck to everyone still trying to make that goal and CONGRATS to everyone who has made it!

November has been a challenging run by far and I admit, there were many times I wanted to give up because I doubted. Doubt and fear can ruin a lot. I must learn to never doubt again!

I’m heading off to bed!

Good night all!

NaNo Days 24 & 25 – Not So Good & Better

Day 24 proved not to be such a good day for me word count wise. Day 25 has been much better and has helped me bump up my word count. A twin brother, Keith, has left the scene jealou of his brother, Wesley’s musical  career. Keith leaves but will be back. Jealousy is blinding his perception of life, and as such, has dire consequences. He will face his brother again, quite soon!  I made my word count on Day 25!

Total Word Count: 43.540

Getting a word count will be tougher tomorrow. Up at 5 to get hubby, and daughter ready and then a blood draw at 7, drop off the dog for dental work at 8, grocery shopping and Home Depot after that. Pick up dog at 2, appointment for me at 3 and appointment for daughter at 5! Ugh! Tired of thinking about it. It will all work out as God sees fit.

Good luck everyone and God bless!

NaNo Days 22 & 23 – Didn’t & Did

For NaNo Day 22 I didn’t make the word count. I feel asleep at my computer again. This Lyrica is kicking my butt! Just a side effect that is said to go away over time. I hope it does. Just hope it helps with the fibromyalgia pain.

So this morning, the 23rd day of NaNoWriMo, I decided to try writing in the morning instead of the evening. And guess what! I got my word count in!!! Yess! Still have to plug it into the NaNo sit but I’ll do that when I know I am done writing for the day.

Finally in my story, things are getting pretty heated and my main character is about to get the surprise of his life! And it’s not necessarily a good surprise either. It is something that will change his life forever.

Can’t wait to get back to that scene so I am off!

Good luck!

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 Is Coming!! Do You Have A Story Ready?

Oh, boy! National Novel Writing Month is coming soon!  Just six days away!!! Ahhh! I’m so excited! Like you couldn’t tell, right?

I have been working on the synopsis for my novel Facade which I had started during Camp NaNo a couple of years ago, but never got too far with it. In that time I have implemented some changes so I’ll be doing some rewriting for NaNo this year. I am very excited and can’t wait to see what comes of this novel set in the 1930’s & 1950’s. It will be interesting to learn the lingo and culture of that ear.

My husband shocked me yesterday and told me he had a story idea and that he wanted to try his hand at NaNo! He has never written stories and works as a computer programmer, so this should be interesting. I listened to his idea (involving the USS Maine) and think he has a really good story. I can’t wait to read the story when he is finished with it!!

If you’d like to be my writing buddy for NaNo here is my link: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/jimonroe

Counting down the days until NaNo!

Best of luck everyone!
