Today is Day 7 of National Novel Writing Month and I have produced a grand total of:
I can’t begin to express how happy I am about this; I’ve been in a bit of a rut and committing myself to a desk and computer after a long day working at a desk and computer . . . well, let’s just say that it hasn’t been easy. But there is something about having a community of people from around the world, engaged in the exact same process, experiencing similar joys and frustrations that inspires me. It’s one of the reasons I enjoy participating in NaNo each year.
So far, I have met two of the goals I set for myself this year.
1. I have written daily. For several of those days I barely met my 1,666 daily word count and other days when the story just took off and took me on a wild roller-coaster ride until I looked up and found that I had written over 3,400 words.
2. I finished the 3rd of my Misadventures of Mama Lou series of short stories, in just one week, no less. Definitely a personal best! LOL! Of course, I didn’t say it was good, just that it was done.
The rest of the month I plan to focus on finishing as much as I can of my new contemporary romance. Wish me luck and for any other NaNoWriMo-ers out there . . . best of luck and
