Preparing to word war after working with my grandparents and writing blog posts and such for five hours.
I've hit 21,000 and hoping to write 3k yet tonight. We'll see what happens, I guess.
I need to be careful, though. I was drinking a glass of milk in the kitchen when I had a bit of an epiphany; I'm very concerned about my word count. Enough so that I'm thinking, "What can I write next that will get my word count up?"
I came close to losing track of the story, or even caring about the story. It became about word count, and it should never be that way. If I get 3k, I get 3k, but I need to focus on the story.
Here it goes. *eats a few Cheez-Its and writes*
Well, I got to 21,600 words, and I can't keep my eyes open. I'll have plenty of time to write tomorrow, at least.
CURRENT WORD COUNT (today): 27,122
WORD GOAL: 27,800
Thought of the day: The Internet is distracting: DON'T GET ON IT.
I have a little more than 5,000 left to write, if my sources are correct. *checks again*
Yeah, that's the correct number. I've written a little today, but I need to dig in my heels and WRITE. I need to stop procrastinating and surfing the internet.
Blast, I had forgotten how distracting the internet is. >_<
For ten minutes XP
I'm writing like the wind and really loving it. I got to an epic part and saw all the way to the end of "Part One" of the Prophecy of Einarr.
I'm about to do something extremely clever. :D :D :D :D I love where this chapter is taking me! I've got an epic figuring-out scene that I'm writing where they realize the plot twists and THEN I have a cool little thing where a character relates a crucial piece of information just after I cut out of the scene. I then reveal that information later on and it comes as a complete surprise. :D EPIC.
The writing is really slow, but I'm at 24,000 at least. And I stopped for supper. About to do an hour-long word war, so maybe that will help me out.
I'm at 25k and I'm mentally exhausted. I'm going to take a trenchcoat walk in a few minutes.
Well, I talked with some really nice people on the One Year Adventure Novel forum, but that didn't get any writing done. I'll buckle down and see if I can kill the last 2k or so of words before heading to bed.
I have a thousand words yet to write.
Well, let's get 'er done.
I need to go to bed, I'm getting up early for church in the morning. My final count is 27,122. Just a few hundred words away from my goal, but if I write much longer, I won't be able to get up tomorrow. At least I wrote about 6k today. Hopefully I'll make up the 700-odd words tomorrow. Good night.
CURRENT WORD COUNT (today): 30,000
WORD GOAL: 31,500
Thought of the day: Word wars are good. ^_^
I need to write. O_o What's my goal? *calculates* 31,500. All right, not bad.
I've been writing, but I've not been keeping this up.
Oh, and let me tell you what happened today: I was in Hesston, Kansas and eating Mexican at a restaurant. Hesston is a farmer town. Conservative, Republican, and very Mennonite.
Someone walked into the Mexican restaurant. He had a few windblown wrinkles and graying hair, a thick, Western mustache and tight clothes. He wore the BIGGEST belt buckle I've ever seen, and topped off the picture with...a Stetson.
I couldn't stop staring at the Stetson through the entire meal. XD "Thou shalt not covet!" <---Hard today.
The internet is so stinking distracting. >_< I need to write a lot. I'm at 29,000, and I'm aiming for 31,500. Let's go.
No more internet or breaks until I reach 30k.
I'm at 30,000 exactly. Gah. >_< I need to take a break, I'm tired.
I'm going to bed. XD Good night!
CURRENT WORD COUNT (today): 30,300
WORD GOAL: 35,200
Thought of the day: Write, write! Write until you drop!
I should be writing, but instead I'm running around in righteous anger at this article: http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118046098
If you watch Doctor Who, you should be mad too. XD
I need to buckle down and keep writing. *nods*
Hey all! How's it going? How's NaNoWriMo, NaNoers? Need a word war? Shoot me an email. :)
