Nano 2013: An Update, Plus Something Extra...

I'm behind, NaNoWriMo 2013, that is. I'm sitting on 25k word count on the 17th. That puts me two full days behind. It could be worse, honestly, and I think I can catch up... um, probably.

For those curious, I get the feeling that rewrites on this one will be extensive. It could take a long time to get into shape, but I'm very happy with where I think I'm going with it. So, yay.

And in other news, well, I don't really have other news, because everything I've been doing in my free time has been writing, which means I don't have anything else to talk about. Heck, I haven't even been reading much. I've got nothing.

So, carry on, write hard, and bring me the head of my enemies.

Can I bring you a shrubbery instead?
Two days behind is nothing! You can catch up. And even if you don't, you still rocked the writing this month.

Deborah Walker said...

Hey, that's great. I've written a quarter of that in November. So you're way ahead of me. Good job.

Tony Laplume said...

You're less behind than I am. But being behind is kind of the theme of this blog, isn't it?

Pat Dilloway said...

I met the goal already, so good luck.

Jay Noel said...

You're doing just fine. I'm only a little bit ahead of you, but my writing has been sporadic this NaNo. Last year, I was steady.

With my travel schedule, it's been feast or famine.

See you at the finish line, man!

You have enemies? Are the heads attached to bodies or just lying around somewhere?

Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

I believe in you, Rusty!

Good luck with the rest of NaNo. :) I know the feeling in terms of a) knowing rewrites will take a while and b) liking your story anyway! I'm in that boat too.

2 days doesn't sound too bad. I am sure you can catch up.

If I can find a few heads lying around I will pass them on.

2 days? Pshaw. You'll catch up. I'm sitting at about 35k. After 3 years. But I don't get much writing time with all the mom-of-teenagers thing and the wife thing (people around here expect meals to be cooked and weird things like that).
Now as to the heads, a list of said enemies would be helpful. Wouldn't want to bring the wrong head...though I'm perfectly willing to take on this task. I'm just picky when it comes to which victim...

You can catch but no matter what you did well this month.

Gina Gao said...

Don't worry! I'm sure you'll be able to catch up.
