So, hey, it’s Monday. To give you just an idea of MY Monday, THIS is the weekend I was coming off of:
Lucky 13. Yay. If I sound less than genuinely enthused, it’s just that I’m getting a little burned out on this whole novely endeavor. I want to go romp with Carlos! I’m not letting myself until 3:30 or 22,500 words, whichever comes first.
Mayhaps you’d like to see my sketches? They are named for the word count I was at when I drew them:
Okay, so a 15k Challenge this weekend… it will be a challenge, that’s for sure! I’m competing with several others over on http://johnatthe.com/ (“cfparadis” in the Word War).
Carlos and I took some fun and ridiculous pictures while procrastinating today:
I suppose having started the challenge by finding out at the kick-off party at 6pm on the first day that it was actually a REAL THING wasn’t the best. I’d thought it was a vague sort of “National [insert thing here]” month observation by our one and only Portsmouth Public Library, not an actual thing you register for, with a concrete 50,000 word count goal to reach!
In spite of that, I committed anyway and overshot the daily goal that evening by more than doubling it!
(Plus, look at all the cool loot I scored from the fabulous Portsmouth Public Library!:
It’s now Day Ten, and although I’m not QUITE up to par, I’m doing fairly well considering I’ve had a few “0” days and even a “9” day… Write-In Tuesday accrued me almost 6k!
I have added a widget to this blog to further incentivize my progress.
My NaNo name is “cfparadis.”
Let’s DO this!
