A Flurry of Words

This is SO going to be my month.

I don't know what happened, but the moment midnight came I was typing faster than ever and got almost 2K words within an hour using Write or Die. I was at the kick-off write-in for my NaNoWriMo region, and every time I hit my goal WoD would trumpet my success. The first time everyone looked around in confusion, then started clapping, and every time after that they'd make jokes about it. It was a lot of fun, and I got a lot of words to boot.

Of course, though, I get sidetracked easily. Hence, my Muse has gotten her own blog, I'm writing this post, and I wrote one as a guest for another blog, which will be up either tonight or tomorrow. Yesterday I had a difficult conversation with a friend, one I didn't want to have, and I ended up being torn from the mood to write. In order to get out of it, I went to a NaNo social.

I plan on 10K a day with a minimum of 8K, hoping to finish my current WIP with NaNoRebel. Then I'll move into the sequel for regular NaNo. Yesterday I only managed to get 5.6K, but hey, its more than I've gotten any day in the last two weeks. October was a very difficult month for me in terms of writing, but this month I have a  renewed vigor to get the story out, and its really exhilarating. I can feel the words straining to get out and I'm so excited to be writing with such gusto again.

Speaking of which, my writing buddies will likely see this and pull out their whapping sticks and come after me for writing 2 blog posts and setting up one for my Muse and letting her write her first post.

I need to go run and hide with my laptop before they find me.

    You, my dear, are a very good writer.

    So let me get this clear. You are currently getting down about 5-8K a day as a NaNoRebel - Er, what's that? Then you plan to start the regular NaNo. AND you are writing 2 blogs? What are you, some sort of alien? Do you have kids? If the answer is yes, I shall have to slit my wrists!

    In all seriousness, you are a true inspiration. Just added you as my writing buddy. Look forward to more updates - on both blogs!

  2. lol thanks! NaNoRebel is where you're writing something not strictly a novel, or in my case finishing one you've already started. I hadn't planned on doing NaNoWriMo, but then got tricked into it, so tried finishing the current WIP but couldn't. So I'm Rebeling that one.

    And no, I don't have kids yet lol. I think I'd have to slit my wrists if I tried that with children >.<
