Just checking in with you guys with another semi-life update.
I’m currently battling a cold—haven’t had one of those in a WHILE—so I’ve taken the liberty of staying in my room all weekend. This did me some good because though I’m still coughing up my spleen when the Mucinex wears off, I’m feeling loads better than I was on Friday.
First, I must apologize for the long delay in my postings—recently I had a bout of bronchitis (that I really think started out as allergies but then mutated!) I took a quick trip to the hospital on Black Friday and surprisingly, didn’t stay too long thankfully. After a check to make sure it wasn’t pneumonia, I was given meds and a nebulizer treatment—which I must say really helped clear things up! I’ve never had a treatment before, though I’ve been asthmatic since I was 19.
Yes, I survived another NaNoWriMo! I think my official word count was just over 52,000, which is the most I’ve done since joining the competition. The good news is that it definitely got me back in the swing of things. The bad news is that most of this will probably be scrapped because it’s just words– which is what NaNo is suppose to be.
Bye-bye November –or Movember– hello, December!
I can’t believe that it’s December already– time has really flown by this year. No seriously– anyone else feel like this year has just completely flown by? Feels like it was just September, I sneezed and now it’s December.
I completed another NaNoWriMo challenge and my draft is utter trash. But then again, it’s suppose to be. Besides writing and working, I’ve been looking at some other projects to consider, which I’m really excited about. I’m getting into the habit of doing yoga everyday. I’ve been doing it for a couple of months, but it hasn’t been everyday. I’m 2 days in so I’m hoping to keep it up. Not too much, but at least Sun Salutation everyday.
I’m aiming that 2016 will be as productive, if not more, as this year. I’ve got a couple of interviews for the blog coming up this week so stay tuned!
Happy Writer Wednesday, Movember and NaNoWriMo!
I was going to talk about my feelings on Grey, 50 Shades of Grey as told by Christian. I’d gotten it from the library a few days ago and had recently finished it. I wanted to talk about my take on it, but instead this post will be about writing and emotions. Grey will be the next topic of discussion.
So November is over, and December is here! Man—where did the time go?! I can’t believe that this year is almost over. Seriously, where did the time go?
This means that another NaNoWriMo challenge is wrapped up. Despite some roadblocks, I was able to meet my goal of 50,000 words. Yay!
In the middle of the challenge, I’d started to get stuck in my plot. So I took the time to write out the plot points, characters and traits on slips of paper and arranged them in different ways. Physically seeing the story allowed me to move the parts in the areas I thought they’d serve best. And then the words started flowing again! It’s a little easier to write when you know what your story is about.
So what will December bring for this story? Lots of editing, reshaping, and rewriting, which I really look forward to. For those who participated, what did NaNoWriMo bring you? Did you complete your word count goal? And what’s next?
For those who didn’t do the challenge, what are you working on this month?
14,600 words. I’m still catching up from a non-writing weekend– had some traveling to do and an audition. Still plugging away and the day’s not over yet. My goal for today is 3,000 words. I’ll be on twitter later to report how many words I’d written today. What was your writing goal today?
