Sunday, and I just blew past 10000 words!

Wow!  Didn’t think I could do this, honestly.  Have never written anything longer than say 2500 – 3000 words, and that was for one of my literature courses.

I am thoroughly enjoying this process.  My characters are becoming a little more real every day.  And I’m wondering what’s going to happen next.

But I know I have to pace myself or I’ll lose focus.

Which leads me to make a comment about some of the other nanomowriters.  Some have got 30000+ words already!  Yee, gods, that’s a lot of writing!  I am muy, muy impressed.

I’m still waiting for them to put up the word count thingy, until then I’ll just keep updating my novel stats to post the increase in my word count.

Just want to give a shout out to those who come here faithfully and cheer me on.  It really means a lot!

Saturday night, well, actually it’s Sunday morning

Or is it?  We’ve got to fall back tonight.  So it’s really only 11:17 p.m., not 12:17 a.m.  I’ve just finished writing about 1/2 hour ago.  Then went to update my word count on the NaNoWriMo site.

7842.

Yep, that’s right.  Seven thousand eight hundred and forty-two words.  And I was looking after my youngest grandson tonight.

I thought, momentarily, of not doing any writing at all, but once I had him in bed and had some of the toys picked up and his dirty clothes put away I thought “why not?”  I’ll get to far behind if I don’t   So right now I think I’m about 500 words short of where I should be, but I’m not sweating it.

The fact that I’m writing upwards of  1000 words a day is, to me, amazing.

Is my story more than just a bunch of words vomited on to the page?  I think so, but it’s going to need some major work when I’m done.

That is going to be the scary part.  Will I have anything worth trying to turn into something?

Oh, Lord, I’m tired.  I don’t even think that made sense.

So, good night.

Here’s to Daylight Saving Time.
