Let me just clarify - the DOOM is on you, not me. I'm happily typing myself into a delirious frenzy, whereas you are now doomed to countless posts about Firechild for the foreseeable future. Muahaha!
Unlike my last blog post, today I WILL be getting down with the "Here ye' here ye'! I wroteth this many scribbblings this day" nonsense.
(I don't know, I'm tired. Just laugh and nod your head to humor me, m'kay. I've expended a lot of creative juices this morning and I need to refill the well.)
Tomorrow I'll do something more fun - like an excerpt. I like doing those anyway... stories have always been easier for me to share than most of my other thoughts.
As for my progress update:
We are now on Day Six and the word-count is hovering just under 5000 new words towards our target 60,000 (2168 new words over the weekend.)
*makes miserable pouting face for a second time*
4458 / 60000 words. 7% done!
Not really the update I was hoping for. *sigh*
Yet, despite my crawling start, things have picked up the past day or so.
I've been suffering some insomnia and migraine issues all week that have made concentration (and not growling at anything that moves) very difficult... but I've also slowly started feeling closer to "better" since Sunday. The better I feel, the more my productivity and ideas have picked up, so here's hoping it continues uphill from here. I'm really enjoying the story and characters again, and am eager to really dive into it fully. And by fully, I mean until I start forgetting things like eating and sleeping... (That's when you know I've been sucked in for good! Don't worry - I have people who make sure to remind me to ingest sustenance and close my eyes regularly.)
To my fellow writers doing NaNoWriMo:
Hope your words are flowing easily. Don't forget to stay hydrated. Good Luck To All!!!
Thanks For Reading!
For those of you scratching your heads and mouthing "NaNoWriMo?" with a puzzled expression:
NaNoWriMo is a month long event where both fledgling and professional writers alike commit to writing 50,000 words within the month of November (30 days). It is a shortening of "National Novel Writing Month" and has participants all over the world.
