WOOHOOO NaNoWriMo count!! *updated*

Leave a comment

Yes, I had some time to write in a full day with no interruptions and Patrick even brought me coffee! He gets me. 🙂 The kitties had to have their loving time, and it was a good break time. I was able to write 20,000 between Friday and Saturday!!! that’s about right for punching it and no editing, just write-write-write!!! And stay off the internet!! That is the most important part! When I stop checking my numbers constantly, I can actually do some writing. I put the phone in another room and just open up my word document and go for it. Plus, I never know what my nights are going to be like, so best to write when I can.  Plus, I’ve got a bit of cushion now.  My strategy is to get as much out as I can, and then if I need to stop and gather some wayward thoughts, I’m not stressing as much!

Okay! WOOOHOOO!! Go Me! I added all the numbers together from Friday and Saturday, so yes, it looks like a huge chunk of writing. But staying off the net is the most important thing to do. 😉 FYI my full day is Friday and Saturday combined, I work third shift, so I took a nap on Friday after the mani/pedi relaxation, and then wrote until Sunday morning! I woke up Sunday night with a sinus migraine, so no writing then and a little bit last night and yes, I added that into the count too!

in other news, I can’t in good conscience follow someone that can’t spell or use grammar! there is an app called Grammarly!! LOOK INTO IT! omfg… people, you’re writing a blog? how old are you, thirteen? stop with the text speak, a little bit is fine, but your whole paragraph is nothing but misspelled words and then text speak! NO!! STOP!

If you noticed the IOTD, it was my Winner banner from this year’s NaNoWriMo! That’s right, I won it again! WOOHOO!

so now what happens? 

Editing and revision happen! Once I get it to a point, I like, then I’ll be sending it off to a beta/proof-reader! And now, I’m waiting for the cover artwork! I’m sooo excited to see it! I gave hardly no direction as I’m being gifted this artwork, so when that happens, I let the artist do their work! Gary did the last cover for me too!

I had started the third story… but then I realized, “YOU NEED to finish the revision of the sequel and post THAT STORY!” My brain yells really loud at me! LOL

So instead of doing the NaNoWriMo this year, I am using the time I schedule to write to focus and do my revision of the sequel. I think we’ve all waited long enough. 😦

I’m also looking at the original story again and will be offering both as epubs if anyone wants to download and read on their portable devices. And actually downloading them both and reading them has been helping me with the revisions. I obviously haven’t done a lot this week, and honestly… I’m still not quite with it to create. But a huge thank you to Steve for emailing me some art to color!! Now that I want to really really really do! LOL

so… off to go coloring now!

Stay Strong, peace and love to ya’ll!!

I’m going to keep saying that, as I’ve been scrolling through my Tumblr blog thingie… there appears to be a lot of adolescents right now having suicidal thoughts. A lot of us older Tumbler’s have posted that we are there for them, talk to us or call this number: 1-800-273-8255

meanwhile…

In other news, I’m still revising, my nano story to post on the my Plotbunny Musings blog I was hoping to have it already posted with the first two chapters. But well, life happens and I’ve been dealing with a lot of personal stuff too.

However, I do hope to get some writing in this weekend, starting Friday night after work. 😉 and that’s if I don’t get in and do some writing during lunch these next few days.

During NANOWriMO the goal is to write, not necessarily good writing, just get the words down and revise later. Yeah. So while I have a good story, some of what I wrote, I’m questioning myself now. lol and my beta hasn’t gone in yet and left me notes. So… time to go dig in and see what treasure I can transform. 😉
