NaNo 2007 = PWNED



There were times I wasn't sure what I was doing, and I will never again change horses mid-stream during November, but I have validated my novel!


In the course of validating, I always scramble my text, because I am an uber-paranoid nerd. It was so much fun seeing character names like that, I thought I would share the code-names of some of our favourite blokes: Sxvxyus Sqakx and Yxmus Zukiq (aka Muugy). I'm not sure what the squishy ship name for Zukiq/Sqakx would be, but it's a pairing for the ages. *grin*

NaNo Word Count

Woohoo! Another breakthrough tonight. Of course I'm not writing things in any kind of order, but still, it's good to get words out.



48490 / 50000 words. 97% done!

NaNo

Realized I haven't updated this in a while. Saturday I did 2400 words, Sunday 2200, Monday 1000. Tuesday night (into Wednesday morning) was a good night, with about 6,000 words. Tonight I managed another 1650.



35967 / 50000 words. 72% done!


So I'm doing pretty well on NaNo, though it's been a strange month so far.

NaNo word count and OMG I need to sleep



25290 / 50000 words. 51% done!


Things came together tonight. Suddenly the new direction I needed to take gelled, and I've got a plan again. I need to write out a lot more new plot cards, but I'm very pleased with my progress for the night, simply because I got unstuck.

And it is 4:18 am. I seriously did NOT mean to be up this late tonight. This morning. Er.

How true this icon is.

NaNo: Complaints and widgets

I love my parents dearly, but I am looking forward to their week of vacation being over. Coming home and finding them both already here, wanting to do something, and then having the past two days off myself (as I am officially done at FL) has absolutely killed my word count. Not that we haven't had fun. Yesterday we went to McCormick's Creek State Park and Spring Mill State Park, with a quick 20-minute end-of-the-day wine tasting at Oliver's Winery. (And yes, I do feel bad that I've been this close to lore twice in the past month or two, and still haven't, like, gone to lunch with her or something.) We had fun hiking and exploring a cave that made Dad say he was "in an episode of Supernatural" and stuff...but man, my NaNo is languishing from it.

Of course, it doesn't help that I've decided to drastically change a couple of key plot points, which basically means rewriting huge chunks. *grin* Oh, well, that's half the fun.

Anyway, including some widgets, just for kicks. Like my Progress Report, which is inaccurate of course, because the frelling NaNo site would barely load for me for the first three days, and then which I forgot to update on 11/5, which is the last time I actually added to my freaking word count.
