It’s been a rough couple of weeks. Between illness, entertaining children (the bottles being one of the projects we’ve done), trying to fix my website plugins, and other projects, I haven’t been allowed much time to write. I’m only halfway to my goal of 50K for NaNoWriMo, and I’ve only got 8 days left in the month. But hey, I did make it further than last year, and it’s not due to lack of inspiration either. I’ve got visions dancing in my head of a character making a noble sacrifice and everything going terribly wrong.
Despite my laments of writing time or lack thereof, I’ve got some things to cheer about. I finally killed that character I’ve been meaning to kill since June! Plus Fues from the Cera Chronicles has made his entrance in the big books. And my main character exploded in a way that left me cackling. All in all, I think I’m going to actually keep most of what I’ve written this year, unlike previous years. And I’ve been pretty good at sticking to my map of scenes, meaning there shouldn’t be a whole lot of fixing needed later.
I hope all of you are doing well, and if you’re writing, I hope you’re getting a lot of words. And for those of you who have Thanksgiving tomorrow, I hope it’s a good one!
How has your month been? Have you had any writing triumphs? Got any plans for Thanksgiving (if you have it coming up soon)?
