Something New

Well the NaNoing is going really well. I have changed directions in my story a couple of times. I almost have a grasp on what it is I am actually trying to write. I had one major freak out when I realized I had written the ending. I calmed myself down and realized I still had a lot of guts left to write. That was a relief because I thought the whole thing was over at about the 16,000 word count. Officially this is the longest word count of any story that I have ever written. I am feeling satisfied with my progress. As, I am well on my way to meeting the goal of 50,000 words by November 30th.

Friends keeping Friends in Check!

My little widget at the side, that keeps you abreast of my progress, is actually functioning in another capacity as well. It seems to have an effect on my conscience too. Since I stated so boldly that I intended to do this and I really don't want to go back on my word, it reminds me of my goal. It keeps me in check. I don't care for the red at the beginning of the day so I try really hard to at least make quota. This is the only way for me to get that box on the calendar to change from red to green.

To all my fellow bloggers cheering me along, thank you for your kind comments and support. Your words are always the highlight of my day. I have told you many times before but I will tell you again, they are gifts and I am grateful that you leave them.

To my fellow Wrimos YOU CAN DO IT! Keep the faith!

And to all and everyone else warm wishes.

P.S. If you see any typos in this post, please overlook them my brain is in first draft mode.
