November Madness


I’m not quite sure how I managed it but last night I hit the 50,000 target for NaNoWriMo.  Yay!

November has been an insane but wonderful month – I’ve spent pretty much every spare minute writing. Knowing that I have the bones of a novel down ‘on paper’ is such an incredible feeling . Unfortunately now I have to edit it! Currently I have lots of disjointed scenes, half of which haven’t even been placed into order. Most of them haven’t been read over since I wrote them.  Once I have read over and edited a few I’ll start to post a few excerpts…

I’d like to give a big shout out to Joy Pixley who’s been a great writing buddy, always there with support and encouragement. She hit her 50,000 words last week despite having had to take ten days out for a massive work project. I know that if that had happened to me I would never have been able to catch up. Just having my weekends eaten up by work was bad enough!

Thank you to everyone who’s dropped by to visit my Wordless Wednesday posts over the course of the month.  I’ll try to make it around everyone’s blogs now I have a little free time. Also, my apologies if you’ve left a comment that I haven’t responded to. All of the photographs I’ve posted were scheduled back in October so I’ve only really popped onto the blog to make sure they were up. I have a number of Christmas colouring pictures that I intend to work on and post over the next few weeks but hopefully I’ll soon be back to some sort of normal posting schedule.

Bye-de-byes. 🙂

      1. Slightly – but many of the things I’ve been putting off are things I’m looking forward to doing, like working on my colouring pictures! I have a stack of about 50 pictures that I’ve drawn over the years that really need to be put up on my blog. I’m also looking forward to editing everything I’ve written during November. I’m fortunate that I have very little housework to do. 🙂

  1. Yay for us! I’m so happy that you hit the 50K mark on time, WOO HOO! And a big shout out to you for being such a great writing buddy, too. This was so much fun!

    Good luck with your revisions. I’m still trying to get another scene written today so I can kick off at 60K. And then: welcome to Edit City!

    So, who wants to do it all again in April? 🙂

    1. It was great fun, though I’m quite enjoying having a day where I don’t have to think about writing several thousand words. I really want to get started on the revision straight away but I have several other things I need to do first – not least the stacks of colouring pictures I need to prepare for online use! April sounds quite good to me… 🙂 Good luck making it to 60k.

      1. I did make it to 60K, yay! And in time to head to my writers’ group last night and have them tear apart one of my earlier chapters — but now I have time to revise it, hooray! I’m not sure whether I’ll start revising yet, or finish off the last few chapters missing from the outline. I’ll see which way the muse wants to go. After I take care of a few mundane things like laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, etc,.. 😉

  2. Congrats! Well done. I’m sorry I haven’t been a better writing buddy though. But you made it–and yes, Joy is a great writing buddy. 😀

    1. Thanks. 🙂 I wasn’t the most communicative writing buddy myself – I was very much a ‘head down and write’. I was amazed by your word count all month!

      1. So was I, I only have three days in the week where I can write, and in November, I did nothing else these three evenings. Now I’d need to clean my apartment, LOL.
