The Witch and the NaNo

Hey folks, I’ve been struggling with a cold these past few days, so I may have been MIA. Actually I slept for two days and lost a lot of time. All I managed to do was sign up for NaNoWriMo.
Say what? You did what? Yeah, well, it seemed like a good idea at the time. (Perhaps that was the cold meds talking. Tee hee) I will start to post NaNo check-ins later this week, perhaps on Fridays.

Anyway, I did manage to dress up for Halloween. The kids can’t be the only ones who get to have fun.
Now for the ROW80 check-in.
1.      Write 5000 words per week until first draft of WIP is complete.
So far I have about two thousand words written. I have some serious catching up to do if I’m going to make the NaNo deadline.

2.      Accept more requests for interviews. (Currently I only do about one in five. Bad me! I’m told I need to open up and get over my shyness.)
Didn’t get any requests this week.

3.      Read and comment on at least one blog per day.
I think I managed this one, but I’m not sure. A few days were pretty foggy there.
Ok folks, how many of you have signed up for NaNo. How many of you are under the gun like me?

  1. I'm doing NaNoWriMo! Other than the short I wrote this summer, I haven't written new material since last time I did NaNo, in 2009. Yikes! So far I'm up to 6300 words, so that's on track, provided I get my 3k in today (I divide mine up differently than the standard 1667/day). Hope you're feeling better and can get cranking soon! I have no doubt you'll be a winner!

  2. Now that's how you get your witch on 😉 Catch up can be stressful but when you catch up it feels really good. You can do it. I didn't sign up for NaNo this year. I'm pretty rigid on my word count output vs time. To hit that 1,667 I need about 3.5 hours a day. I'm a slow writer and my schedule only lets me have about an hour to an hour and a half a day to write. Maybe next near. Best of luck though!

  3. Love the costume, Prudence, but I'm sorry to hear about the cold.

    I've also signed up for NaNoWriMo this year, and so far things are proceeding fairly well. I've written 8600 words, which is great since I know my energy will slow down mid-month.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Gosh, a lot of people seem to be ill lately. I always feel bad for the writers because we desperately need that creative time. Hopefully you're getting all better. I'm cheering from the sidelines for you on NaNo. Keep it up!

  5. Hi Jae, yeah, quite a few folks have been under the weather. I am very much on the mend now and starting to catch up on the NaNo word count. Thanks for the good wishes and encouragement.
