This is me, working on this …
OOPS! My bad. I meant to post this picture…
Seriously though, I’m behind in my NaNoWriMo project and there are only nine days left in the challenge – I’m not panicking! (I will post a potato head graphic later with my current word count). So I will be spending most of the day playing catch up so try not to miss me too much.
Better yet, click over to Write Anything and read the first chapter of our Chapter Seven project. It’s a science fiction story called, “Lost on Earth” and it’s pretty good, if I say so myself.
(Incidentally, if you would like to get involved in the winter 2009 Chapter Seven edition, just contact me and I’ll set you up. Don’t be shy! I don’t bite!! I still need three more writers. All you have to do is write a chapter when it’s your turn and you have like a week to write it. It’s REALLY fun taking part in a collaborative project so holler if you want in!)

Wow, day 21. It doesn’t seem like it should be day 21 already.
I’m pleased to report that I wrote 3,200 words today. Woot! You know what’s weird? I seem to write better when I’ve taken a few days off. Even though I’m not consciously thinking about my story, I must be subconsciously thinking about it because today, I holed up at the university library (BLESSEDLY quiet) and churned out 3,200 words in three hours.
I’m pretty damn proud of myself.
My story? Feels like a dog chasing it’s tail. I don’t feel like there’s enough action and it feels boring, but that’s okay, because when I go back and revise it (because hello! I’m taking advantage of the free paper book offer through Amazon.com), I can write in some exciting scenes – I think.
I plan on holing up at the library again tomorrow (it’s a cemetery on Saturdays) while my youngest son practices with his honors band and then I’ll quit when it’s time to watch his performance. That’s several hours so hopefully, I’ll really crank out the wordage.
