Meet My Kitties: Cheeto

Cheeto. Oh little Cheeto. This fat black and white fucker has the key to my heart. He’s been with me through so much and has never left my side. There were months when he was my only reason to get out of bed in the morning. This is his story.

NaNo Check In: Week Two Blues

Hello friends, it’s time to check in with my NaNo progress for this week!

Word Count: 21,404. This doesn’t include the writing I’m going to do today!

2017-04-14_0956

On target? Yes and no. As predicted, I wasn’t able to do a lot of writing last weekend. Okay, I didn’t write at all. So this week, I’ve upped my daily word count to catch up. I will be back on track tomorrow!

Challenges: My increased word count in addition to the slog of week two is making writing really painful. Sometimes I have to force myself to open Scrivener, or bribe myself with treats. I haven’t given up yet, though! 

Victories: My book is really beginning to take shape. It’s so weird because when I started it just kind of felt like I was writing down a bunch of characters and their stories, but now we are really moving and grooving. I also know now that my book is going to be really long before the revision stage begins. I’m talking like 100-150k words. So, I’m probably not going to be done at the end of April. I’ll probably finish in May because I plan on keeping my word count goal at 1,667 every week day until I’m done with the first draft.

Thank you for checking in!
