Time to Write!

My new laptop is in. My desk is set up. And I’m ready to jump back into my story. I’m going back to the story I started back in 2009 for my first NaNoWriMo. I’ve previously referred to it here as WIP #2, from now on it’s Olivia’s story. That’s not a final title, merely a working one. Without further delay, here I go…

First milestone reached

I’ve surpassed 10k words! Yay! In fact I’m at 11,366 right now. Naturally I should be much further than that, but I don’t care. I’ve gotten more word count than last year and I still have 2 weeks to go. This has me very excited. I’m still not 100% sure that I’ll hit that magical 50k but I already foresee getting much further with this story than my last one.

Unfortunately I’ve reached the point in my story where I feel like I’m writing crap and it was a horrible idea to write about. lol Thankfully I know enough authors to know that everyone goes through that phase. So even though I still feel like it’s stupid I’m working through it.

One more exciting thing….. Since I have already beat last year’s word count I went ahead about bought myself the NaNoWriMo participant t-shirt. I can’t wait to get it. 🙂

Getting back into it

September 25, 2010 at 10:23 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

Well I’ve been ignoring this blog and my writing both for a while now. Time for me to get back into both. Since I last blogged I’ve switched from working on WIP #1 to WIP #2. WIP #2 is the story that I started for NaNoWriMo 2009. With November and NaNoWriMo 2010 just around the corner I really want to get one of my stories finished before I start another one. I think it’s a good idea to start NaNoWriMo fresh but I’m also nervous to have 3 WIP’s started. Here’s hoping that this coming week I’ll have some good word count to post for ya. If I don’t, yell at me to get moving. 🙂 I could use someone standing there with a cattle prod. lol

WIP #2 current word count: 11,460

Today’s word count totals

May 5, 2010 at 3:45 am (Uncategorized) (, , , )

Today was a good writing  day. Since I’m still only beginning to take my writing seriously and making it a priority in my life, I’m starting with relatively low word count goals. My aim is to write 1,000 words a day. Today I was able to crank those words out pretty quickly. Unfortunately I had to leave for school or might have tried to ride that wave. I also came up with a much better opening line while in my car on the drive home tonight. I was so excited I raced straight to my bedroom and my laptop, opened my WIP and got it in there immediately before I risked forgetting it. Hopefully tomorrow will be another great day.

WIP total word count: 6,523
