NaNoWriMo Update

It has been a frantic month of writing, re-writing when I found inconsistencies (which happened almost daily...) although I tried not to edit.  At times, I thought that I'd chosen the wrong story to tell, that my main character no longer enjoyed being in my presence, and my antagonist struck early and quickly, doing in my MC no matter what I said or did.  But, the MC was just fooling with me, he was waiting patiently for me to figure his clues.  And so today, after 30 days and too many hours to count, my second manuscript has reached completion!!  There will be much editing and I'm still not totally pleased with the end of the story.  But, it is the heart of the story that I wanted to tell, the rest is just semantics.

Glad I had most of the story finished before the last week in November, that flu bug I had made me want to do nothing but sleep, lifting my head was murder. LOL It's a bitch getting older... *bones creaking*

So, I'm sharing with you my winnings!  Thanks to everyone out there who encouraged me when I didn't think I was going to make it.  And a huge thanks to my writing buddies for prompting me to finish even if they didn't know it!


I'm so happy to see the end of November, but in way, sad too.   The MS is complete, but it always feels like there's more to tell.  To all my writing buddies, I'll see you again next year!  May you have continued success in all your endeavors!

Yay, omg Dottie you rock!

I did try, but then I missed days and the amount needed to be written kept piling up :( And I just hate my desk too much to spend time writing at it, but I got half way there yay me

Hi B!

It rocks that you made it half way on your first time!! More than half way, almost 30,000 words! Damn that's great! YAY!!

You should be very proud of that accomplishment, and there always time to keep working, maybe a little every day or so but until you think it's done.

It really doesn't matter if you met the goal or not, what matters is that you tried, and no one can ask for more than that.

It does get easy with each NaNo I participate in. It's becoming part of my day to sit and write, which is almost mind boggling, lol. I know it drives the rest of my family crazy to hear me click the keys constantly, lol!

I can't wait to see your story, even parts of it! Keep writing, B, I know you have an excellent story still to tell!!

((hugs))

B, I'm amazed everytime you write something in English... it's totally awesome you're able to converse, express your ideas in a language that is not your first. My hat goes off to you my friend!

((hugs))
