then why am I up so early? Oh, I know, I got attacked by a story that wasn't supposed to be part of my NaNoWriMo but has now taken it over. So, I thought this would be the perfect time to get updates from everyone. I'll start us off.
Hi, my name's Amanda and I'm a NaNaWriMoer. It's been half an hour since I last wrote and, sigh, I'm still behind my goal. But I'm closing in. With some discipline, I'll manage my 50k words by the end of the month. Will it be a complete novel? No, but it will be half a novel and I'll be far enough into it to make sure I finish. My current word count on this project is 8,000 words (approx). Total word count -- remember, I started with a different project before this one hijacked it -- is 11,350 words.
So, my fellow NaNaWriMoers, sound off. How are you doing?
Are you having any problems keeping to your schedule? Is there anything about your story that's giving you fits? Or is there something that's really surprised you about where your plot is going? You have to beware of those sneaky plots. They'll run off in directions you never planned on if you aren't careful. ;-p
Any way, the floor is yours. You can discuss all things NaNaWriMo or anything else -- except, of course, politics. I'm off to find more coffee and to pound out another couple of pages before finding breakfast.
