NaNoWriMo Update

Yeah, I know it's only a few days into the month, so what possibly could there be said at this juncture about my stunning work of creative brilliance? Not much really, except that it is historical fiction (or perhaps hysterical since I've engaged in a minimal amount of research about the time period in which it occurs) and I'm over 9,000 words into it. I'm feeling like it was wise to go all out in the beginning here because the more words I have done, the more I feel like I'm committed to this mammoth undertaking.

It's been fun to hear of other writer friends taking up the challenge with me. I think that is part of what makes NaNoWriMo such a great adventure: the thrill of "competition" and the company that such misery requires. That said, I can't figure out the NaNoWriMo buddy system, so instead I invite anyone who'd like to buddy up with me to add me to their NaNoWriMo buddy list. Here is a link to my user profile for you to do that (Llama Momma, the one I previously gave you I've ditched. Sorry): http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/436784 .

All you non-writers, don't worry, I have other non-writing thoughts I plan to share in the next few days. In the meantime I have some wild beasts to fend off and some hungry characters to feed.

4 musings:

Yeah! I added you as my buddy. (Couldn't for the life of me figure out how to do that without the author list thingy, so THANK YOU!)

So glad to read of your progress. Wow! You rock!

I'm in the thick of it too, though word count is a bit less during the week than on the weekend. (Gee. Wonder why??)

I'm having fun, though.

i don't think there's a way to do it unless you have a link to the user's page. i just added you to my buddy list. good for you being so far ahead. starting late, i'm behind for the first time, but on my way to catching up. 7690 last night.

I laughed at that sidenote about "the company that such misery requires." :)
