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 18 – Almost

Number 18

 

I was short on the word count for the day. I ended up having a good conversation with my husband for about an hour and a half when I normally would be doing NaNo. The conversation was important though so it was good we had it.

After the conversation I wrote for about an hour until midnight and typed just over 1,000. So close but still need to make up a few hundred words. It’s okay though. I am learning it’s important not to beat myself up and to be happy for the word count I did get!

Total word count so far: 34,034

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.

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 15 – Outta The Park!

Number 15Did it again!!! Yay!!! Wrote 2,426 words which gives me a total word count of….

30,081. I could write more if I wanted to, but I think I’m done for the night. Need to be up early.

Had some good changes happen in my book I wasn’t expecting that is really working in my favor…at least for tonight. lol. We’ll see about tomorrow’s writing session and see how well that goes.

Well, my fellow NaNoWriMos, I must be off to bed. Sleep well and God bless!

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!
