Nano update

Well today was a sucky day, I was tired all morning and wrote little, took a long nap and got some volume out, and I still managed over 1900 words.  I hate what I wrote, and when I finally do revise it, it's gonna be definitely revised, chopped, edited or replaced.  What slogging!  But it did get me to where the last action scenes are going to open up.

Total to date: 44, 888

Words left: 5,112

2 or 3 more days will do it to get me to 50K.  Wow.  We'll see how many more it takes to get me to The End.

You're doing such a great job to keep pushing through! I know exactly what you mean, and it has been my major problem with trying to do NaNo. I have such a problem with trying to keep going when I know I am not happy with it. I am an edit-as-you-go person. So, it really doesn't feel like I'm around half-way there when I know I'll be scrapping a lot of it. *sigh* (And I'm still running a couple of days behind, thanks to a recent bout of family illnesses. I need a super-productive day! Or two! ^_^)

Yay for you for being so close to 50K! Keep going! You're my inspiration. ^_^

Yeah, I'm an edit as you go person to..and although I've been able to bash my internal editor to sleep during this, it's been hard. I can think of about 3 places I think I chose the wrong fork in the road to get to where I am, but the idea with nano is even if you make a wrong turn, keep writing, cause you can fix it later.

Or at least that's what I keep telling myself! LOL.

Damn! Wow. You continue to inspire me. I have about 24k, but it's flowing well so I am happy. Don't know if you are on Facebook at all? If so, please search "Air Born" and join the group!

I hope to read your output sometime when you are ready!

I think I did join the group, but I really don't like FB much, and about the only think I do there is play bejeweled blitz...

Once I finish the draft, I'm going to put it aside for a little bit to cool off but then, I'll start editing it...I think with work, it'll be the core of an interesting and much longer fantasy novel.

That stuff, I'll let people see.
