I had two simple goals this morning.
Get up. (Don’t laugh.) Friday mornings are hard for me to do D&E. I made it, but only by going to bed before 10 last night. I didn’t watch Survivor because I was doing some stuff for the Evil Day Job. I didn’t watch the debate because I was putting the monsters to bed and then wrote a bit.
Write 500 words. (Again, don’t laugh.) I know 1K for a D&E session is more than doable, but for whatever reason, I’ve only been getting a few hundred words this week. New scene, new POV character, etc. all valid excuses, but come ON. I need some major wordage here.
I made both goals! Total scene length: 1676 and it’s finished.
I decided last night that I only get to do NaNoWriMo if I finish these revisions. I really don’t think I can get the whole book revised in a month. I need around 40K in new words and probably 15K of the existing draft needs some serious work. About 40K of it hasn’t even been edited once. *dies*
It sure would be lovely to participate again and get some nice wordage completed on Return to Shanhasson though… Dharman and Sal have begun to clamor along with Gregar now, which I suppose is only to be expected. After all, they really want to nag Shannari.
We’ll see. I really doubt it’s humanly possible to do a decent 2nd draft this month, but Sal is eagerly offering all sorts of assistance.

Wow – congrats on finishing the scene! You impress me immensely with your D&E schedule. I used to do that too, but now I have to use that time getting to my EDJ… 😥
And I hope you get to do NaNo – I wasn’t going to this year, due to lack of motivation, time, etc… but it’s the 10th anniversary, which it would kill me to miss, and as soon as I started even considering it my muse piped up with a nifty idea… so I’m planning on it as of right now. I love to torture myself, see?
Congrats on finishing the scene. I can’t do D&E, I go to bed too late for that.
I’m planning to do NaNo myself this year, I’m even going to try and plot out the story before hand.
Have a great weekend.
P.S. I’m lovin’ the laptop. 😀
Best of luck with your project. I admire your discipline. And if I haven’t thanked you yet, thanks so much for adding The Galaxy Express to your blogroll. I appreciate the support!
Bethanie, I’m really hoping to participate! There’s such a fevered madness to NaNo–it’s wonderful in a manic sort of way.
Thanks, Ann! How’s George holding up?
Heather, thanks for stopping by! You’re very welcome and I plan to stop by your blog more often in the future!
Woot! Yay for getting the scene finished! *confetti*
I should take it then NaNoWriMo is really as fun as I’ve heard it is then?
