Hello friends. Have I got an exciting blog for you today, and just in time to prepare you for the long, boring month of NaNo updates.
I saw that someone did this tag and I thought “Hey, I want to do that.” So I’m doing it, regardless of whether I’m tagged or not.
Whoopdie doo time for another book review. That wasn’t as sarcastic as it sounded, I just thought I would be whimsical and start with a rhyme. You know what, let’s just forget that first sentence even happened.
For the past month, I’ve been furiously writing. I’ve developed characters, moved plots, decided on a name for my book, and watched my word count crawl closer and closer to my 50,000 goal. I updated you all every week, bringing you along with me during my triumphs and my failures. But I know what you’re thinking. Dude, it’s May 1st, did you win or not?
Chief is a really cute cat. He’s also a complete fucker. He was my husband’s kitty long before I met him, so I can’t give you a bunch of details on how he was as a kitten. I also can’t tell you we have a super close bond or anything because we don’t. In fact, he’s too far up my husband’s ass that he probably doesn’t even know I exist.
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.
Hello, friends! I’ts time to check in on my NaNo progress and I’ll tell you now, it’s not what I want it to be. Week three has been a real slog.
Word Count: 31,834
On target? Nope. I need to hit 35,000 today to be on target. I might be able to do it, but I don’t have the will. It’s not writer’s block, it’s fatigue.
Challenges: I’m having a real hard time getting any writing done. It’s been a pretty hectic week, and by the time I open Scrivener it’s like I lost all the will to work on a project. I would say I need a break, but I didn’t write last weekend. I am going to work really hard to get to 35K today. It’s Friday so maybe I can make some magic happen.
Victories: None. Absolutely none. The plot is still moving along, but nothing brilliant or revolutionary has come out of week three.
Thanks for checking in! I hope you all have a great weekend.
