I managed to stay slightly ahead of the necessary word count ... but it was an extreme effort. I did look through the "dares" on the NaNoWriMo forum, though, and found some interesting ones that I might just have to use.
I spent time yesterday looking for the perfect gown for my heroine. She needed to have something a little unique, something that would stand out in a crowd, but still be appropriate for a high society charity auction. Those of you who are my friends on Facebook have already seen it, but this is what I chose:
So... I'll keep on keeping on, though I'm not entirely happy with what I have thus far. The conflict is weak and needs to be dramatically increased. I need to have some secondary characters added who are really "out there" (like Frank in "One Love for Liv" -- he really was my fave character). Geoff is so somber. His life pretty much sucks right now, so it's been a bit dark. Time to lighten up a little!
I still haven't used any other of the objects you gave me, but I will. I will!
In other news ... I will probably not post on the blog over the weekend. Between usual weekend craziness and having full day agility competitions BOTH days, I'm going to be both brain dead and exhausted. BUT... come Monday, hopefully I'll have some fun videos to share with you and be a little bit back to normal.
Have an awesome weekend!
You Are Dorothy
You are a little lost right now, but you are slowly finding your way home.
You are a kind and loyal person. You are the truest friend anyone could ever have.
You have an active imagination, and you are intrigued by far away places. You make friends easily.
But at the end of the day, there is no place like home. You value your family and roots.
Mostly right :-)
