Nanowrimo Still Going

Wow, this Nanowrimo thing is really coming along.  I am really proud of myself.  Sorry, I hope I don’t sound like I’m boasting but even my husband is proud of me.  I tend to start things and not stick with them but I just love watching the word count go up and watching the stats and the days go down to the finish line.

I decided to keep encouraging myself I bought myself a Nanowrimo t-shirt from their store.  I hope it doesn’t take to long to get it.  Plus, now I have the word-tracker up on both the web sites I blog on; so that really helps me to continue.

I try to encourage those I call Nano Friends as well.  I’ve read a lot of books that don’t make sense.  Who cares if yours does nor doesn’t at present?

We are all in this together so please don’t give up or the load will get much heavier.

Writing & Restaurants

Hey, This is my first pop-in since starting Nanowrimo.  I am pretty proud of myself because I am actually doing it.  I wrote 1900 words today which was the most so far.  If I go up in words every day, it would be fantastic.  I’ve pretty much set myself a schedule and I find the best time to write is when I first get up after I’ve checked my one comic and any major e-mails, then I just get going while I drink my coffee.  While I knew basically what my story was about, my main character is in high-school and she may be leading me a different direction.  I need to see if I can avoid that or I will have to completely change the title and the whole first few paragraphs at the beginning.  I don’t mind a few loops thrown in but I’m not sure I want her to completely take the story over.  I am thinking if I can really complete Nano (and at this rate + with this attitude, I believe I can), I will have confidence to finish the true story I was working on afterward.  Although, I may take a break and enjoy December, first.  That one is a lot tougher because it is about a mentally,  abusive relationship I actually lived through and I am working from notes from old diaries and memories.  Nano is a lot more fun coming from my imagination.

Other than Nano, my friend and I went to B.J’s Pizza and Brewery in Huntington Beach, CA because I thought they had a large Gluten-Free Menu.  I am a bit picky and I really don’t think their Gluten-Free Menu is quite as large as I’d hoped.  The pizza choices are a bit narrower then expected and the way the Veggie Potato was described was a bit confusing.  The manager was nice enough to come and talk to me about it, after we ordered.  But, needless to say, it’s not one of my favorite places.  I also tried Taco Bell after reading that the Nacho’s were safe and I have to disagree.  Maybe it was the Cheese Sauce which had a wonderfully, hot zing to it.  All I know is that’s  another place I need to stay away from except for maybe their Hash Browns.

Hope all is well with everyone, I’ll be back.  Tomorrow morning is back to Nanowrimo Land.  I want to do this thing so this month, I can’t use Sundays for days of rest.  I know God understands.
