My novel has taken on a life of it’s own!  I’ve heard other writers talk about this and I’ve touched on it in the past too.  I’m really having a good time with this book.  But I am just amazed at the twists and turns it is taking!

I didn’t plot out every thing.  In fact I didn’t plot out anything before I started writing.  I had a good idea for a plot, the main points along the way of the story, the characters, and how I want it to end.   That’s it!

This thing has grown legs and is now running along in front of me!  It’s up to me to keep up with it!  It’s shaping up to be even better than I first imagined!

My word count to date is 8124.  I’m averaging about 1624 words a day.  Still just a little shy of my 1900 word goal.  But over all, I still feel very good about it.

I hope all of you are having as good a time as I am.  Happy Friday and Happy Writing!


In the Zone!

Good morning!  It is a gorgeous fall day here.

I am “in the zone”!!  I am LOVING the way my story is shaping up!  I am having so much fun with it.  It’s just flowing!!  I love that feeling.  The writing is not a struggle at all at this point.  (knock wood)

Yesterday, I added 1432 words.  So far, I am averaging 1781 words a day.  It’s a little shy of my goal of 1900.  But I still feel pretty good about it.

Have a wonderful day all!

Day One of the NaNoWriMo Challenge

I know it’s only day one, but I’m pretty proud of myself.  My goal today was 2000 words.  I made it to 2335.  Woo hoo!

Now the challenge will be to keep up the momentum.  I feel wonderful about what I’ve written so far!  I’m having a blast watching the story unfold.

I know during the week I won’t have as much time as I do in the weekends, so I’m glad I got as far as I did today.

To all my cheerleaders, thank you as always, for your encouragement!  The community here on WordPress is wonderful at sharing and helping each other!

To my other NaNo writers, keep on keeping on!
