NaNoWriMo, Day 13: 1737/18630.

Not a typo; yesterday’s total was a typo (I looked at the wrong number). Still, I’m only down 3000 words at this point.  I guess I’ll come up with something that bridges the gap in the narrative between what I wrote yesterday and what I wrote today.  I wasn’t sure how to get from where I was to where I wanted to go, so I wrote out where I wanted to go in the hopes that it would give an idea on how to get there.  I think that it may have worked, too. We’ll see.

NaNoWriMo, Day 11: 1667/18337.

We’re all spreadsheeted up in this stuff now, mind you.  Got a scene out of my head and onto the words that came out fairly well, I think.  Also, had to look stuff up.  I’m trying my best not to research anything on general principles, but sometimes I have to.

Eighteen thousand words. Lord have mercy. No, really, that would be great, Lord.

I thought, actually, that I would just write out a few hundred words and claim (my thankfully clearing up) sickness to excuse the rest.  But I got back into the groove.  I’m still a couple of thousand words behind, but we’ve stopped the falling.

NaNoWriMo, Day 9: 535/1044/13489.

I am, alas, sick. I caught whatever kept my youngest kid out for two days earlier this week, and I am shamelessly combining the prologue that I should have been counting all along with my actual wordcount to come up with today’s number. And now I will probably put up a music video and go to bed.

But I wrote something!  I didn’t just use being sick as an excuse not to. Gotta keep plugging away at this.

NaNoWriMo, Day 8: 629/12445.

As I noted earlier and yesterday: I took my wife out for our anniversary this evening.  I am pleased that I got this many words out, particularly since there was wine with both dinner and desert. The important thing was to sit down for at least an hour and work. Which I have done, so I suspect that I will be sleeping soon.
