I finished yesterday night at 9:43pm. I validated on the NaNoWriMo site at 50,312 words. I'm happy. I most likely won't blog again until I die.

35 Characters

At this point in my NaNo, after 27k, which is miserably below my 32k goal for today, and 39 pages I have 35 named characters that play a specific part. I am a little disgusted with myself at having so many characters but taking them out would considerably shorten my plots, subplots, and word count. Although, already lacking I love my story and each character - except the bad ones of course, I hates them!

Anyway, Miotke has been kidnapped, her kidnappers have been kidnapped, there have been a sea monster, a shipwreck, fifty giant octopuses, blood-lusty natives, dragons, and now most recent is a dungeon torture chamber. Later we'll have a desert escape and some kind of desert beast attack, as well as a desert city hewn from the rock much like Petra with a runaway desert girl.

We'll have some happy endings, some twist endings, and some obvious endings. I love it!

Lost Track

Wow, I've lost track of time. Today is the halfway point of NaNoWriMo! I'm at 24,900 out of 25k. I'm personally shooting for 26k today. I only need 1.1k before midnight. I'll be rather pushed to get that done. I have work until six, class at seven thirty with a major test I need to study for, and then this evening I'm starting a workout program with a friend from nine to ten.
Yikes! Where does time go? I received care packages from my NaNo Swap partner and my parents - YAY! This month is half over and reeks of stress-filled holidays already! I'll be happy to not stress over Thanksgiving, but Christmas is another story. I need to focus and be determined now to not worry about the little things during that season.
Anyway, Jesus is Lord! God is on His throne! I am His child and He will take care of me!

Day Eight

Well, last night was almost a disaster. The computer was freaking out and by the time it decided to work the husband wanted to game a little. We did and when we got done dieing repeatedly I tried to catch up my last 900 words. Just barely made it and slept soundly afterward.

I don't have much to say today except that hopefully the kidnappers are going to be kidnapped by the end of today's 2k. Main character gets kidnapped by bandits and they all in turn get kidnapped by pirates. Maybe I'll post my general outline later this week.

This is all I have for today. Still loving NaNo and can't wait to munch on some dried mango this evening!!

as of 4:13pm today!
 I've been sick, and so busy with school and writing I keep forgetting to post. I hope I'm at least putting up a semblance of consistency. On the second I was too sick to write any at all. Yesterday I wrote just under 4,000 words in order to catch up! Phew! That was rough, but I did it with time for LOTRO that night with the husband. School work is sort of getting done and I accidentally missed class last night while writing. I just came home from work and began to type! When Justin (husband) came home he asked if class had gotten out early, I froze. I could feel icy hands clamping around my heart! I felt sick - I never miss class unless I'm unable to leave bed!

Anyway! The head cold/sinus infection is practically gone and things are looking up!
