All right, folks! We’re officially one week into the insanity that is National Novel Writing Month, the 30-day writing marathon designed, so far as I can tell, to induce you to crying into your pillow or the alcoholic beverage of your choice.
Nah, it’s not really that bad. Kinda.
On our way to the 50,000-word goal, I can report that as of this morning, I sit at 11,520 words toward the work in-progress. I might put a bit more toward it today, but the primary item on my writing agenda is addressing editor’s notes for another manuscript that I already let sit a week or so while I was finishing the Mars Attacks novella. I’d like to wrap that up this weekend so that I can get back to work on the new novel starting Monday morning. I’m really not worried about hitting or missing the NaNoWriMo target count, but it does add a bit of extra kick to the proceedings.
So, for those of you who’ve opted to partake of this year’s NaNoWriMo shenanigans, how’s it going? Find your zone yet? Having fun? Tell us what’s going on in your writer’s corner. No judging; we’re all friends here.
Then, once you’ve done that…get your ass back to work. 😀
