Phew. I made it in to the "office" today. So many weeks fly by when I can't get to our meeting. You know, where you and I make goals for the week, and then dish about how writing is going? I know, it's been awhile. And as excuses go, I have some good ones. For last week, anyway:
Last Monday was Cowgirl's 5th birthday. Here we are celebrating with an ice cream and baby dolls. Everything was pink, and Cowgirl had a blast.
We had more celebrations last week, but I will save them for the next post.
On the writing front, I am way behind on my NaNo words. I haven't thrown in the towel, but it is likely that November may be the busiest month of the year for me, even without NaNo. I did have an excellent breakthrough thought this morning on how to move forward with the novel. So, we'll see! Thanks to all my crit partners for hanging in during this hectic time. :)
I don't think I've talked all that much about my NaNo project on the blog. I'm drafting a dystopic YA. Squarely YA. It's not cuspy at all. I recently switched tenses, which is always fun mid-draft, and I am thinking of narrowing my focus from two POV's to one. I'm having fun with the story, and just got over the whole 'why the heck am I writing drivel and pretending it's a novel?' bump. So, in my estimation, it should be all good to the end, right? And, I'm just about to blow something up, so that should be really good. :)
My only goal is to move forward with the story, and to take a look at my MG revisions. I'm not tasking myself to NaNo word counts, but I'm still full of hope that I'll get those back on track.
How are you doing? What are you working on? Gotten over any humps recently?? Have a great week!
