National Novel Writing Month Update


So, NaNoWriMo is in full swing. I went last night & wrote at the library. Then went to Barnes&Noble, wrote some more, & then rewarded myself with a yum hot coco.

I wasn't sure about it at first, but I love the NaNo website. They have a handy way to track your word count.

According to the graph I have about 4,000 words to write tonight. Luckily Scott has a "guys night out" tonight so once the kids are in bed I'm writing (& tomorrow morning I'm going to have a little writing marathon at the library) Wish me luck!

Smithy- I'm totally falling behind with being sick. UGH.

M- It is & it's turning out to be a lot of fun too!

anelieze- It was hard. Especially since it was such a big part of what I did each day & for months. But it's out there now!

Aunt Linda- Thanks so much!

Dawn- Oooooo! That's terribly exciting! Let me know what the link is!

I'm 6,000 words in, only 8,000 behind my daily word count goal, BUT I didn't officially start until the 5th, so I think I am doing okay.

I hope you get better soon!

Olivia Carter said...

Cat- I added you as a friend! Hooray for NaNo!

Good luck. I'm sooo jealous. I really really wanted to participate this year. I've been looking forward to it for 2 years. Alas it's next year for me.

Way to go Liv you can do it!!!

Olivia Carter said...

Debbie- Thanks! Being sick has put me MAJOR behind but I'm working at it.

Cindy said...

So how come you have to keep up to a certain word count? Do you have a deadline? How did you do?

Olivia Carter said...

Cindy- It just helps you so that you spread it out over the month. I still have until the 30th. So, I'm trudging along slowly.
