Finally finished the third chapter

I have been so behind on blogging and writing. Partially because I don’t have the deadline of NaNoWriMo hanging over my head but also because there’s been a lot of personal upheaval in my life–from my mom’s kidney failure to my dad’s current hospital stay to my recent fractured leg due to another nasty fall….

Word count was 50017 to validate. I added another 100 or so words after midnight to get the “Update your word count for 30 days” badge. One more write-in tomorrow night. I think I may work on my fanfic for The Flash fandom, just for a change of pace. Then the Thank God It’s Over…

I was a day ahead…

Just before I posted this. As of midnight, Thanksgiving Day, I’m right on target at 40044. I plan on writing in the evening when people can be in the region’s chat room. It’s becoming clear to me my story will go over 50K by a large margin before I can actually go through and start…

Tough week!

This has been one tough week! We had three write-ins in a row, each at a different library branch. (I have one more tomorrow morning at the local independent bookseller.)

Super brief update.

Despite having some painful medical tests today (fresh baselines for the new neurologist), I am where I should be: 15000 on the nose. I won’t be putting up anything about my story today; I’ll say something tomorrow for sure, though. I’ll just leave you with a picture of my new friend, Darla, and my rocket…

Fire drakes!

I’m at 11730, which is just past day 7’s goal of 11666. It took four 15 minute word wars to get there! My hands are sore; not sure if it’s from the cold of the house or a touch of arthritis. There’s a lot I could talk about when it comes to my books but…
