NanoWrimo


Okay, so I'm still doing the NanoWrimo thing. So is Hubby. We compete like crazy every day and so far I am managing to stay in the lead for number of words written. I am up to 40,248 words! Only 9,752 words left =) That makes me so happy. My story is pretty good, in my opinion anyway... Which isn't worth much right now because my brain is totally fried from all the writing. I can barely think of good ideas for my blog right now!

And don't get me started on my kitchen, or my laundry, or the state of my livingroom. It's bad. It's very very bad. But my book is good!

Now, I in awe of all my favorite authors more than I have ever been before. I can't imagine all the research it takes to write those 1,000 page books. It's remarkable. It's fascinating and I want to know more. So at least through all this I haven't hid my head in a sandy hole with my huge rear end sticking up in the sky!

I'm like... bring it on!!!

I think this might be what I was put here to do!!!

Cool, huh?

And just for fun, a picture of my little Angus. He is doing so great! He gets his stitched out tomorrow!!

Yay for Angus and you!

I used to write short stories and even a couple of novels in draft form. It does feel like such an accomplishment when you think that you did all of that.

I'm proud of you!

Good luck on the home stretch of your book. I'm sure it is great!!!

That little Angus - I just want to snuggle him up and give him a kiss! What a cutie.

I came by to say hi again. Not sure what it is your writing...for fun or for a job? Doggie looks good.

Hooray Angus! Trixy was just asking about him last night. And hooray you too! That is great about the book! I'm a little jealous (in a good way) that you are doing this. I'm very much hoping that you will let me read it when it's done...Lucy you!
