One more in the day in the can. Good writing vibes today. Really fell into rhythm with my characters and the plot. Even got out of the house to do some writing for a couple of hours, half of which was actually spent writing. Also turned onto the http://www.gamemusicbundle.com/ and I am currently listening to Shoot Man Robots game soundtrack and the guitar/olden times country non-lyrical mix is very good. At this moment I feel transported into a rocking chair with a shotgun by my side named Bessie, who gives me comfort as I hope with glee that someone comes onto my lawn that sparks a wild shoot-out, that turns into town wide mayhem that leaves me as the hero of the day. Then party time in a saloon with my best friends with the next morning resulting in a trip to the doctor. If my description is anyway close to the game, I shall have too look into it, and give credit to the musical artist Disasterpeace for such image mood appropriate music. Actually I will give him/her that credit regardless for the wonderful imagery the music summons from cord to cord. Now I am in a coal mine, but I will escape my fate. Sooooo writing went well. Wordcount check. World building check. New music check. Caffeine check. Sleep...I think I answered that in the last question point. Now strutting my stuff on the only main street with a tumble weed drifting by as saloon doors creak even though there is no breeze (tumble weeds are self powered).
Last class for the year is complete. Obama won. Marijuana has been legalized in some US states. And my word count didn't really happen today. And I am okay with that. I also did some editing on my book (not my NaNoWriMo book). Good day, and I am willing to take it at that.
My NaNoWriMo shirt came in! Now that I have it I can truly show off my pleading to the gods to grant the sustaining power to keep going. So far they have obliged.
Out tonight with a friend who is not doing NaNoWriMo, but is still fictioneering. Careful planning is his way, low word count is his game.
Once more word count met. My sister-in-law hit over 10,000 words today! So great, considering she is also a very busy person. But that makes the victory so much sweeter. Mmm, sweet victory. I will claim it tastes like peanut butter, but you might have a different opinion on that.
I am back on track! Ya! First thing I did when I woke up after 4 hours of sleep was do the dishes while listening to my audiobook (Dune), and my day was off to a god start. I didn't start writing until mid afternoon, but I felt good. I had gotten over yesterdays setbacks, and went at it, so I now I am caught up for my 3 day word count (5,000 words). As I foretold, I remembered more of what I had lost, and I believe I improved it.
The story I meant to write was not supposed to be Book 2 (book 1 still in edit process) but I think it is. 50,000 words this month will be a good start, but no where near the 210,000 of the first book. AND I am no longer using Dropbox for my writing, but have moved to Wuala.com instead. I like it already. Dropbox makes sense for those rolepalying pdf's I have, but for something that needs to accurately sync between my phone and my laptop, Wuala seems great! I also tested it with 2 docs open, and between the version history, secure web access, and just the way it is organized (plus 5GB is nice), Wuala has just earned themselves a fan.
Sorry Syncplicity, if only your app worked on my Android phone, I might have loved you instead.
First off word count: 2,990. Daily target is 1,667. Total should be 50,000 over the whole month.
So I know I can write, and be reasonably pleased with what I have written, in a timely fashion. What I am surprised with is how many other people seem to struggle with it. THIS I take a sign from our alien overlords, or Cthulu, or whoever, that perhaps I have something. Perhaps not. BUT I am enjoying thinking that I might, though saying it loud sounds like I am a douche. So I take it back. How about I stick with I am enjoying writing! And to be completely fair, I only *understood* writing this year. And I am 31. Better late than never.
