The biggest news for today, is that today – DAY 21 – marks the day I cruised past 50k, which is kinda huge.  I’m still well behind where I wanted to be today, both in terms of the word count and in how much more I have left before “the end” but let us take a moment to bathe in the hugeness of hitting 50k in 21 days.  WOO!

Best day yet!  Hopefully only 15 – 20k before I hit “the end”.  But it keeps being longer than I think it will be.  Here’s hoping we’ll hit “the end” before the weekend so I can move on to edit and “prettifying” over the holiday weekend.

Badass jacket is badass. ;)

Had to get some sleep catch up today, write a bunch of a blog posts and a column for Monday’s She Has No Head!, plus still fighting off sickness, so didn’t come close to any of my word count hopes and dreams.  But still not a bad day. Hopefully cleared out enough space for tomorrow to be very productive.  For those of you just checking in and looking for Drunk Cover Solicits…they’re going to be done over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Bad news?  You have to wait another week.  Good news?  You’ll have something to distract you during possibly boring and/or uncomfortable family time. Woo!

Are shredded t-shirts back? They should be. In fact, I'M bringing them back! WOO!

Still not feeling so well, but not full blown sick yet, so trying to make sure and get as much done as I can while I can. I still have a column to get down for Monday and if not too sick, DRUNK DC COVER SOLICITS…so there’s no time to not get a word count in. Almost to 75k…woo!

This was my first day that felt like a real failure. I’m not feeling well and my head was cloudy, I got easily distracted, tired quickly and had real trouble focusing for long stretches (which kind of all mean the same thing, which pretty well illustrates the writing issues I was having tonight). I also left the ms in a difficult place, which is never good and makes it very hard to start again. We’ll see what happens tomorrow I guess. Hopefully I’m not getting sick, as I’m trying hard to get to “the end” on this thing before Thanksgiving.

Lot going on today, but managed to get a couple solid hours of work time in. Got through a frustrating part in the novel with a decent solution that may hold or may get cut, but we’ve moved on to easier scenes…so all is good!

Halfway! Only 727 words today, but today was hell, so what can a body do?

Today’s word count: 727

2 week NaNo total thus far: 33,051

Also, that is WAY the most I’ve ever written of fiction (the same fiction and sequentially no less) in two weeks, so I’m pretty happy about it. Add to that the 6 comic book reviews, one She Has No Head! article, a handful of blog posts and the write up for a podcast…and that is A LOT of writing in two weeks. Very cool.

Decent day considering what I had on my plate. Still a good 10k behind where I wanted to be today, but it could be worse…and I cracked well over 65k, so I’m feeling pretty good. On track to possibly finish before Thanksgiving, at which point I can go in and make it all pretty. ;)

Pissed that I fell well short of word count hopes, but in truth I cracked through a huge problem I was having structurally with my ms today, so I can’t really complain. Also, I cracked 60k, so that’s relatively awesome.
