NaNoWriMo is in full swing, and my blog has started to collect cobwebs. I warned you this might happen.
But I’m here today to try to make up for my neglect. Last Wednesday was so crazy, I completely forgot to tell you to go to the Confabulator Cafe, like I do every Wednesday.
So, let’s start with that. For the entire month of November and the first week of December, the theme is the same at the Cafe: NaNoWriMo. Rather than ask a specific question, we agreed to post something the night before it goes live, no editing, no word-length minimums or maximums–just write whatever crazy, sleep-deprived thing you feel like writing as an update.
Last week’s post came out as a confession of my true NaNo goals this year, disguised as Jane Lynch screaming at me. You can find it here: Drop and Give Me Fifty.
This week, another confession, mostly that Jane Lynch isn’t screaming loud enough to help me keep up the insane pace I set out for myself. Mostly because Week Two Sucks. That Is All.
You can, of course, keep an eye on my progress by watching the NaNo progress bar on the right, as well as the total word count for the book in the bar below that. It’s not where I wanted it to be, but it’s still looking pretty damn good to me.
And one last thing. I’m also over at Here Be Magic today. Yes, really. Attempting a double NaNo with a half twist was not enough pressure. I need to be on two other blogs, plus my own. See why there have been crickets chirping over here?
In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, I wrote this: Thankful for…Monsters. Because, really, I am thankful for monsters. Please feel free to add your favorite monsters in the comments.
And that’s it. I have to get back to Zoey. Things are looking rough for her and her friends/family. I’ll try to get back here soon.
Oh, and Monday we have a special guest blogger. You’ll like her. J.L. Hilton is a fellow Carina Press author and has a new release. She writes sci-fi, guys. That makes her exceptionally cool. Also? She’s funny. So, yeah. She’s going to come over here and help me out while I’m busy Writing All of the Words.
See you real soon!
