Hitting the Target

Last night, just before midnight (when I was in danger of turning into a very tired pumpkin) I passed the target 50,000 words in this year’s NaNoWriMo challenge. It felt good ๐Ÿ™‚

In past years I have crossed the line much closer to the end of November but this year it seemed much easier to write well beyond what I needed each day. Am I more experienced? Probably. Less stressed and busy? I wish! Or did I just have a much better idea/plot/story to begin with? Perhaps, but more likely it was just the right time for this one.

I’m hoping I can continue to add to my novel each day, unlike past years when I did have good intentions but they petered out much too quickly.

And . . . perhaps on that magical one day, I’ll also revisit my past efforts and bring them to a satisfactory conclusion ๐Ÿ™‚

Wouldn’t that be loverly? ๐Ÿ™‚

Here it is…. :)

Just picked theย November issuesย up . . . now time for a quick cuppa and I’ll have them all ready for posting quicker than you can say . . . well,ย I’ll be as quick as I can ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks everyone for your patience.

And . . . my NaNoWriMo . . . . 35,169 words. I’m still very pleased with how it’s going and while I was driving to Seymour to pick up the PWs I had some great ideas and wrote the next section in my head. Just got to get it all down after I do the posting ๐Ÿ™‚

Further delays

Unfortunately, the November Positive Words magazine is still not ready but I have been assured it will be available for pick up on Monday and I will post them all out . . . ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for your patience and kind emails.

My NaNoWriMo novel is still going well and I’ve now passed the 30,000 word mark. If I can keep this up I’ll reach the target several days early and maybe even keep going and finish the story (I’m sure it will have a bit to go after 50,000 words)

I’m thoroughly enjoying it. How are your novels going?

Magazine running late :(

Apologies to all waiting and checking their mailboxes for the latest issue of Positive Words magazine.

There has been a delay at the printer’s but I’m hoping to pick them up tomorrow and have them all posted out asap ๐Ÿ™‚

As I wait for the call to go and collect them, I’ve been busy with my NaNoWriMo novel. It’s going well, the best since I started doing the November challenge in 2012. I’m ahead of target, past the halfway markย and the ideas are still flowing ๐Ÿ™‚

26,502 words ๐Ÿ™‚

Are you doing the challenge? How are you going?

Writer’s cramp?

My fingers have been busy typing my effort for this year’s NaNoWriMo challenge.

Writer’s cramp or typer’s cramp? Either way I’m happy with my efforts and I’m ahead of the target with 8962 words ๐Ÿ™‚ and the ideas are still flowing.

Are you doing the challenge this year? How are you going?

Coming out of the Fog

Today’s writing prompt:

Out of the fog emerged . . .

Hope the idea prompts some interesting stories and poems. Don’t forget that submissions (hard copy) for the magazine are always welcome and I have started working on the 2015 issues, so please send them in ๐Ÿ™‚

Me . . . I’m emerging from a very, veryย foggy brain after completing the NaNoWriMo challenge on Sunday. Phew!!

Home alone as my husband had another commitment, I gave it my very best shot and although I’m sure it will need major editing, changes and re-writing, at least it will be something to work with . . . but definitely not until the New Year!

 

 

Bob the Builder

Today’s writing prompt:

Can we fix it?

Yes! We can ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I’m Sandra the word builder making a last minute effort to finish the NaNoWriMo challenge. I knew when I started it would be even more difficult that in past years to find the time to write but still really wanted to try. (NaNo is terribly addictive!) Those distractions, hiccups and other commitments took over for much of the time but it’s not over until it’s over and my story is being co-operative so…

Can I do it? 15,000 words in two days? I’ll give it my best shot!
