NaNoWriMo Update




So lots has happened since I last posted.
1. I was going to see Mockingjay Part 2 with my sister, but I got/still have an awful cold, so I have to wait. My writing buddy Katie Grace over at awritersfaith.blogspot.com watched it and when I heard about it I had to stop myself from freaking out!
2.My cousin Emma is writing a story now and I am having a lot of fun easing her into the writing world...I'm just kidding, I totally threw her off the diving board! Anyway, in the comments lets all give Emma some encouragement shall we? I'll start.
   Emma, writing is so much fun! I love to write most of the time. When you get down in the dumps about it, keep writing! If you are going to explode, take a walk and then keep writing. If you are depressed about it, talk with your writing buddies.

3. I am almost to 40k! A little over 35, and I am getting it done, but my buddy Sierra at flightstotheaerie.blogspot.com started a role play on the Jorum and that's a time sucker.
It's almost NaNoWriMo time!:
This is such an accurate description!

Anyway

Halfway Point!!

   I hit over 25k sometime yesterday and I almost passed out I was so excited. Congrats to Katie Grace for hitting 50k as well! I almost freaked when I saw her hit the mark as well! All of my other writing buddies are doing great!
   I am excited to finish, and the word sprints on Writedeck and amazing! Pizza was great as well. I started listening to some Civil Wars songs as well *smiles as 20 Years comes on*.
   I have been a little distracted by a show, but I am working on getting off of it.
   So all in all, I am a little ahead. Keep up the goof work all you NaNoWriMoers!

NaNoWriMo Day Twelve.

Ok, so I am at twenty thousand words for NaNoWriMo and I finished my story. I am writing thirty thousand for another story, so I will technically have written fifty thousand, just not in the same book.

This is me today, drinking Earl Grey tea which btw is keeping me going in the day. I write different wordage each day, but around two thousand. My writing buddies are doing great as well. A few have blogs.
awritersfaith.blogspot.com is Katie Grace's. She is a writing maniac! She is so encouraging and is really competitive, or maybe that is me. Oh well, she is a fast writer and I want to beat her! So yeah, I guess I am just competitive. :)
http://flightsfromtheaerie.blogspot.com/ is the one Sierra has. She is also one of my writing buddies. She is super sweet and has helped me through many a difficult time with my book.

So I guess that is it! See you all in a few days when I update my progress.
