NaNoWriMo Update # 3

NaNoWriMo Progress: 

Starting word count: 18050 

Current word count: 50467
Total NaNo words written: 32417

Current Mood: Excited! 

Inspiration: I've used this quote before, but it's honestly the one that I write by. 

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of thier dreams. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt 

Goals as of Today: I'm aiming for 4K today. Not sure if that will happen since I have a ton of errands to run for Thanksgiving, but it's still my goal.

Recent Favorite NaNo-WiP Line: That color her face turned when she blushed was weirdly a turn on. Or maybe it wasn’t the color, but more the fact that she might actually be thinking the same dirty thoughts I was.

Non-NaNo News: It's almost Thanksgiving, which means my family is about to embark on long week of great food and great friends. I can't wait for the fun to begin!

I probably won't be posting another update until next week, so I want to wish each and every one of you a brilliantly happy Thanksgiving!

NaNoWriMo Update #2

NaNoWriMo Progress: 

Starting word count: 18050 
Current word count: 30139
Total NaNo words written: 12089

Current Mood: Tired.

Inspiration: To know is nothing at all; to imagine is everything. - Anatole France

Goals as of Today: I've already written a little over 2K today, but since I didn't write yesterday, I'm hoping to get at least 1K more in before the Colts play tonight.

Recent Favorite NaNo-WiP Line: This all felt dangerously close to that area with boys I tried to avoid at all costs. But then I remembered the way he’d smiled at me and I lost all my instincts.

Non-NaNo News: The last three days have been all kinds of awesome. I got to meet and hang out with my crit partner, Jennifer L. Armentrout and also spend some time with the super talented Kate Kaynak. I'm so sad that they are no longer in the Boston area. *sobs*

Because: Beth is always a source of inspiration for me, and her post about her progress on NaNo is no different. She'll remind you to be proud of what you've written.

#NaNoWriMo Update #1

NaNoWriMo Progress: 

Starting word count: 18050 
Current word count: 26511 
Total NaNo words written: 8461

Current Mood: Hopeful!

Inspiration: And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.  ~Sylvia Plath

Goals as of Today: I'd like to write another 2K today, but I'm not sure it's going to happen. At the very least I hope to write 41K more by December 1st.

Recent Favorite NaNo-WiP Line: “Is that why you won't go out with me? Because I was grumpy on our double date?”

Non-NaNo News: I love my neighbors. I went out to dinner with one of them on Friday night and had a blast. I'm also thrilled with good news that one of my crit partners is getting. Also, I get to meet another crit partner tonight for the first time. I am SO EXCITED!
