I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving had a nice one.
How’s everyone’s NaNoWriMo projects coming? Who hit 50k over the weekend? (or before) Tell us in the comment box so we can happy dance with you.
If you’re doing my NaNo Challenge I’ve got the next check-in up and winners listed.
I’m going to be doing a scaled down version of the challenge in December, called NaNoFinMo. Deets announced Thursday at SuzanneWrites.
Day 21 997
Day 22 1981 — hit 50k
Day 23 1000
and then I hit a stall. Yep, I have not written a word on my sequel since the 23rd.
Bad writer. No cupcake.
I am having a lot of trouble and I think it’s all in my head. I’ve heard so many writers complain that book 2 is the worst that I think I feel that I have to struggle with it, too. Also, I am uncomfortable at how many brackets I’m using and bare spots I’m leaving in an attempt to keep up the momentum. I also wrote a section, a big one, that I’m not sure works — the idea of ripping it out hurts, yet at the same time, if I rip it out it changes the story, so if I do rip it out after I continue on then I’d have even more to change.
Ah, the glamorous life of writers.
However, I am not one to be idle, even with holiday madness. So, while working out that snag in my head…
Day 24-27 22,306 on a brand spanking new project I’m not telling you about.
But I will return to the sequel soon (or I’ll have an unhappy editor).
Oh, so any of you design WordPress templates? I need to overhaul my website and was thinking of going WP.
Have a great week and write on!
