As I write this, I am not in the best place word count wise. Here's my rap sheet:
NaNoWriMo alias - dragonfang77
NaNo novel - NO COUNTRY FOR FAE FOLK (just a working title that I tossed out as a name because for some reason I was thinking of the movie whose name follows the same vein)
Second week goal: 20,000
Actual word count: 15,800
By the end of Sunday this week, I'd like to be at 30,000
#1 thing: enjoy the rest of this ride whether I make it to 50,000 words or not. Life tosses us lemons and I'm learning that I have to make lemonade or sit around like a sour puss all the time. Non-stop sour puss is just too unattractive. So let the fun continue.
Here's a snippet of some of the "mind drivel" I came up with from one of the more recent chapters. This has not been run by the Inner Critic so it has all kinds of grammatically incorrect issues and possibly nonsensical, though it made perfect sense during an energy drink induced writing sprint (lol!!!):
I felt a nudge on my shoulder. Hadn’t realized I’d dozed off.
Nonie stood over me. “No time for sleep, Macie. Now that you’re here, there are a few things you need to understand.” I groaned and struggled to sit up. Thane joined us. I frowned at the sight of him with a shirt on. I’d grown used to his bare chest look. Plus I really, really liked it. Nonie continued, “Central calls you Special. But some folks don’t see you that way.”
“I don’t either,” I mumbled.
“Are you planning to kill yourself?”
My bottom lip dropped and I all but yelled, “Of course not!”
“But they are. They’re probably working on something right now. It’s a faction called UAC, Us Against Central. We believe there’s a subset of radicals called UAS, Us Against the Specials. They don’t make demands. They make Specials disappear.”
Now do yourself a favor and go pick up a pair of pom poms and cheer on some of the other blog chain folks -
So my reader and writer buddies, what progress have you made on your NaNo or none NaNo project?
