Weekend update...

No, not an SNL related post. Just finished up my first weekend writing in my first NaNoWriMo.

I ended up a little ahead of my planned opening weekend count with:


11033 / 50000 words. 22% done!

My only wonder at the moment is whether or not I'll be able to do any reading this month. I just started David Gemmell's Legend and would hate to think I won't get back to it until December.

And I've got Diana Pharaoh Francis' The Black Ship, book 2 of her Crosspointe series, on pre-order ready to arrive in a few days.

But NaNoWriMo is my priority (outside of my day job, of course).

I'm cheering for you! I LOVE David Gemmell. I think November will be the month of little reading, little sleeping and little t.v. watching for you. But LOTS of writing. Good luck and keep us posted. I've wanted to rise to the Nano challenge for two years now but so far too chicken.

Thanks for the encouraging words. This will be my first time reading Gemmell so I know I have a whole slew of great books to look forward to.

At the rate you're powering through the words you should be finished next week some time -- plenty of time for reading!

So far so good. I don't know if I can keep this pace up but its been fun so far.

I see you're closing in on 10,000 words. Keep plugging away!

By the way, I've been trying to post on your blog but blogspot seems to be causing me issues lately when I try and post there (and not just on your blogspot page) so hopefully you'll see this here.

Thanks for the encouragement. One of my Nano buddies passed 50,000 yesterday. ALREADY!! Man, I wish I could write that fast! I don't know how you guys manage to write so much and still hold down a full-time job. I take my hat off to you.

Oops, did it again. I keep forgetting to jump through the livejournal hoops when I post comments here, so I end up being anonymous. I sympathise with your problems with Blogger.
