debc: (NaNoWriMo 2010)

Well, NaNoWriMo started yesterday and I am off to good start. I did, however, make a switch from the romance novel plot to a fantasy story whose characters have been yakking my ears off for the last couple of weeks. Gotta write what’s actually speaking to me, because that’s what might get finished.

I’m still not sure if I am going to share my progress for people to read. If I do, it’ll be done privately (on my personal blog with a password or on LJ/DW in an flocked post). If you’re at all interested in reading it, comment and should I decided to share, I’ll add you to the filter.

In other news, my daughter had off yesterday and today from school, and we’ve had a busy couple of days. We went to JC Penney’s yesterday for pictures, out to lunch and grocery shopping… and today was flu shots all around. Loads of fun, huh?

Now I have to get started on today’s NaNo wordage, because My Girl has soccer practice later on tonight. Her last of the season. Seems like it flew by this year!

So, the display on my Gazelle went on the fritz. Actually, the batteries went dead, but when I put new ones in, the display would turn on, but not actually work. The lights were on, but no one was home…

So I’ve done my last four exercise sessions using the alarm on my cell phone to tell me when thirty-minutes is up. I have no clue how much mileage or calories that is, but given it was about 2 – 2.5 miles before the display crapped out, I’m gonna say that’s what I’m still doing.

While I exercise, I’ve been watching a little tv, trying to catch up on the shows I have DVRed from as farm back as premiere week. Watched a little of CSI:NY and Hawaii 5-0.

I’ve also been discovering that (despite having the tv on), my brain is very active when I am exercising. As usual, the muses come out to play when I *can’t* stop and write. This time, it’s the characters from a short fantasy story I wrote a couple of years ago, wanting me to expand their world into something bigger… and a general summary for different fantasy story about a world where magic has been abolished for the last hundred years and a little girl who was born a mage.

It’s a shame I’m writing a romance novel for NaNoWriMo, huh? Why couldn’t those muses be the ones talking to me while I glide away on my Gazelle?

debc: (Squee!)
Well, I have signed up for NaNoWri, now that I've finally committed to a plot.

I've also signed up for [community profile] origfic_bingo . I don't know how I'm going to post the fics yet, though, since I'm rather "hedgie" about original fiction. I usually post my NaNo stuff to my domain blog, in a pass-protected post.

Should I do the same for the bingo fics or do it some other way? (If some other way, feel free to leave suggestions in comments?)

Oh yeah, my bingo card is here )

Well, I have met my goal for today and need to take a break from writing so I can look at my outline. Or what passes for my ‘outline’ anyway. *g*

Another long writing day. I mean, it flowed at times, but others was like molasses in January. Ugh.

(That is to say… I got my needed word count…at last!)

And it only took me all day, too!

How’s everyone else doing?

Well, I didn’t get any writing done yesterday because I was babysitting during my designated writing time, but I’ve made up for it today.

Sometime tonight I have to work on my outline a little more, because I’m almost to the end of the 2 chapters I had outlined.

Not bad, not bad. And I’m still averaging 2000 words in 3 hours. Approximately.

I’m glad I’ve got a little bit of padding because I am babysitting tomorrow and might not get to write at all.

Moving right alone…

I am surprised because I had a late start writing and a LOT of distractions. Brenna was home from school due to election day and the phone kept ringing. Also, I had a rough night last night and wound up awake until 2 a.m. Only to be woken up again at 3:30 and 4-something by the husband, who was not feeling well.

But despite the rough start and the feeling that I was pulling teeth today, I still managed to get my word count.

Looking good! Though, the muse I just spent the morning channeling is a bit of a spoiled, self centered brat. And something of a diva. And I have to make a heroine out of her? Oy vey!

While I was setting about to write today, I found some writing quotes and I thought I would share some of my favorites.

There’s nothing to writing.  All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein.  ~Walter Wellesley “Red” Smith

The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.  ~Anaïs Nin

Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.  ~E.L. Doctorow

The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought, this in turn makes us think more deeply about life, which helps us regain our equilibrium.  ~Norbet Platt

Heading to bed. I am still very proud of today’s accomplishments. I got a butt load of laundry done, wrote 2300 word on my NaNoWriMo, was able to work on my website a little and watched Bram Stoker’s Dracula with the husband.
