So we have reached day 7 of #nanowrimo. I’m a bit behind but not too much so as of yesterday morning I was at 7565. I’m rolling along though I had a busy Friday and Saturday. Woke yesterday morning coughing, sniffling and sneezing but I’m hoping for 2k today. I’m off to a writers nano meet up…

   
It’s that time of year again. What time you ask? It’s nano!!! Yep, the crazy month where some writers drive themselves crazy trying to write a novel in one month. Its stressful, fun and an all out good time. (for me) I get to bond with people who might not necessarily be authors but enjoy…

   
Nano has once again revived me and reminded me why I love and hate it. LOL I’ve gotten a lot of writing done on my current book and the next book. Without the energy and motivation of my nano peers I’m not sure that would have been possible. This is my 4th nano and the first…

   
One week of nano under my belt and I’m getting words down. Well until today when I froze on a scene. I’ve decided to think on it and let the story bubble before jumping back on. At least I’ve hit the 20k mark so far. Hope everyone has a great hump day.

   
And I crashed and burned. LOL. Truthfully just too much on my plate. Now, normally that’s not a big deal 🙂 But I couldn’t push through my real life to keep on task with nano in addition to my current WIP and edits for an upcoming release. I got 15-17k I think so I’ll definitely…

   
Nano Day 15? 16? I can’t believe it. Is this considered the two week mark? Not sure but I’m chugging along frantically. My motivation goes up and down :p Right now I’m so far behind its crazier than my heroine. I think at last check on Friday I was 11k and change. Boo.Hiss. LOL. This is…

   
I guess one could say I’m 10 days in though I technically didn’t start until 11/3, I think. At least that’s the story I’m going with. I have made good strides from that disastrous 500 word sprint. I’m currently around 9k and some change. Nothing to write home about but the story is finally moving…

   
I should have known this nano would be different. The signs were all there that this would be a real challenge. Did I back down? Nope. Forged ahead like a lamb to slaughter and here I sit with 500 words on Day 3. LOL. 500! but that’s okay. I’m in the spirit, have my writing…

   
What was I thinking? That’s the question I’m asking myself the 3rd year in a row and here I sit people. Doing nano 🙂 🙂 Wish my luck. I’m doing a sci-fi romance…yep. LOL. My hero today is a government agent, tomorrow…who knows. My heroine is a villain. *gasp* Why? I’m so glad you asked. I…
