So we’re pretty much a third of the way through National Novel Writing Month, and I’m at about a third of where I need to be. It’s annoying, but it happens. Writers have this issue – it amounts to the same thing retail workers call “Stockroom Syndrome” where you enter the stock room and completely forget what you were going there for. Sort of the same thing every time I fire up Office and get ready – I open OneNote for all my world notes, Excel for all my plotlining, and Word for my document itself and – BLAM – there goes my next scene. It doesn’t matter how well planned it is, I just completely fail at writing it.
However, I’m on day one of three consecutive days off, so somewhere in that time I hope to get up to the 15k words I’m aiming for by this point, even if I should be closer to 20k or 25k by the end of the week. I’m only just over 6k now. If there are any beta readers still hiding out there, please do let me know by email. You’ve got mine, I assume? Good.
On a completely bump-related note, go on and stop by http://www.khrystallee.com/ and check out her stuff. I had the privilage of talking to Khrystallee about her stuff today, and Jaz has a necklace of hers. It’s some of the best work out there, and incredibly well priced.
Following is a bit of a personal rant, feel free to avoid it.
