NaNo Day Twenty-One -- Falling Behind

It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness. - Seneca

I got behind on my writing yesterday. Well, my NaNo writing. I reviewed the galley for my story, found one formatting boo-boo, checked it again this morning, found one glaring grammatical error (my fault entirely) and sent that sucker back for final corrections. Woo!

I sent off my WW story to Judy who is also attempting to write for WW. She gave me some great suggestions. The only problem is word count restrictions. When I first wrote my story is was 400 words over the allowed count for WW. So I cut and cut until it fit, but I think it lost a little bit. Still, it's a challenge, so I'm going to clean it up and somehow manage to keep the count down. Thanks, Judy!

I will hopefully have a chance to do a little catching up today. My DD will be at Grandma's house for a few hours for "craft day" and I intend on writing my tush off (ha. If only it was that easy to get rid of my tush!). With any luck and a lot of hard work, I should be able to get a few thousand words today. That's my goal. Check back later this afternoon to see if I managed to do it!

I'm excited to greet the beginning of 2007 with the He Wrote/She Wrote How To Write Fiction blog! I'm also thinking about what I want to accomplish, writing-wise, next year. Yup, folks, it's almost time for New Year Resolutions!

That's the story of my life for now. How are you?


Thanks to some writing prompts and miscellaneous scenes, I've written 1,900words on my NaNo novel today. Maybe I'll get some more, but for now, my grand total is:

36,120 / 50,000

I finally made it over the 30k mark. Still a looooong way to go. But the sickness is out of the house I can get back to business as usual. But I'm feeling the pressure.

Gotta think positively....and get back to work.

Thanks from me for the blog link as well. I'll be checking it out (yeah, great... one more blog to keep me from writing ;-))

Good luck today!

I am so not ready to think about New Year's Resolutions or goals or any of that! *pulling at hair*

Excuse me while I go sit in the corner and have a meltdown. ;)
