NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 16

Still chugging along, didn’t log much yesterday. I’m hopeful that I can get a decent number of words in tonight as the next couple of days are going to be interesting as far as finding time to put words down.

Laria and I are participating in the Living History Farms Off Road Race (they renamed it this year) which is about 7 miles of VERY cross-country running. So I will be more than a bit exhausted on Saturday.

Anyway, keep writing!


NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 15

Well, I kept things moving forward but I am starting to fall behind. Far from considering calling it, but why do I always end up getting sick during November?

Anyway, the concert last night went very well and I plan on getting at least a few hundred words logged today to keep from loosing too much more ground.

Keep writing! But make sure to take time to take care of yourself too!

NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 14

Good evening all,

Yesterday actually went far better than I expected and I was able to put down enough words to keep just slightly over the target.

Charla has a choir concert tonight so my available writing time is a bit curtailed, and I’m feeling worse than yesterday. So I’m again shooting for at least some words today.

For additional fun I’m having a bit of writers block which I was able to deal with a bit by using a phone app that behaves like a set of “Story Cubes” to give me prompts that I then tried to use to spark scenes that would potentially be useful in future sections (or in once case in an earlier chapter).

Anyway, good luck with your writing!

NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 13

Yesterday I took the younger girls to the Des Moines Art Center to look at the special exhibit prior to heading over to Inspired Grounds for the Sunday write-in. While the one piece was closed for repairs (a suspended art that you can crawl through) we had a good time. The write-in was successful also and I kept on track for the month, however I’m feeling more than slightly under the weather so I may not get as much done tonight. I do plan to write something so I don’t log a zero for the day.

So how are things going for you?

Keep writing!

NaNoWriMo ’17 – Day 11

I hope the month is going well for all of you.

I ended yesterday with a bit over par for the month so today I don’t have to push as hard as I might to keep up.

I’m having to do some prep work for the day job today but I plan on getting some writing in when I need breaks from that. I hope that I can either get a day  ahead or at least part way through Sunday’s quota, I like having my progress graph staying above the “on target” line.

Have a good day everyone.
