30 Days of NaNoWriMo – Day 13 and Day 14

Due to personal issues dealing with other people’s issues, I wasn’t able to post yesterday. I also wasn’t able to attend the write-ins for yesterday or today. I’m displeased by this because I really enjoy the live chat during these sessions. On to my posts.

13 Nov

Yesterday’s word count was only 2,072. I had to make myself write in spite of everything I

was dealing with. I’m not allowing anything to keep me from finishing this event like I did last year. My overall total is now 46,579. I’m projected to complete my NaNo goal of 50,000 by Monday.

14 Nov – Halfway Point!!

Today is the end of the second week of November and thus, NaNoWriMo!! Most of my writing buddies who were behind have caught up or nearly so. Others, like me, are flying far ahead. Still more are right on track. As long as none of us lets our Inner Critic or Inner Editor(or both) out, we’ll complete this event together.

My word count for today is 2506 due to still having to deal with things I’d rather not but have to. This brings my overall total to 49,085. Not bad, I’ll complete the NaNo goal on Sunday instead of Monday – tomorrow. Thing is, I’m at the end of the story – the original ending. So, what am I going to do?? I have to not only finish the NaNoWriMo event, I need to hit my personal goal of 60,000 words!!

I’m going to let my Inner Editor out of the closet I threw them into at the beginning of the month, untie them, ungag them and put them to work. I already have plans for a new ending, but there’s more work to be done than that. It may take me another week or two to hit my personal goal, but I am going to do it!!

On a side note:

A friend of my yougest son is going to be doing the cover art for The Inbetween, the name of the novel I’m working on. We’ve discussed it, and I’m going to let her read the story before she begins the work so she can get an idea of what I want. She’ll get credit for the work as well. 🙂

See you all on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
