My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

I’ve Been Neglecting This

So, life got busy and I haven’t realized that it’s been so long since I last updated. It’s not much of an excuse really…I must admit that my inner “bum” sort of took a hold of me the last week or so. There were a few days I didn’t write at all and just sat around the house watching TV or a movie or old Gilmore Girls episodes instead of being productive.

Anyway, today Phil comes back from his business trip in Seattle, thus ending the ten days that we’ve been apart. Of course his flight doesn’t even come in until 10:30 tonight, but at least I know I don’t have to sleep alone any more 😛

On the writing front, I’m slowly but surely coming along with the NaNo novel. I’m still ahead of where we are supposed to be (despite the two days of not writing at all). Unfortunately it seems to be lacking in quality as the days go by. I didn’t think that it could get much worse–but it has 😛

Anyway, I’m getting to a major turning point in the novel, where the antagonist finds my MC and kidnaps her. I’m still uncertain if there’s going to be a death in the process (I’m unfortunately leaning towards yes…as much as I love the character that will probably die in defending her…). I suppose I’ll find out fairly soon as it will be in the next two chapters.

That’s pretty much it…I’m doubting the book will actually be finished by the end of the month, but it should be within a few chapters.

  1. Sounds like you are still making progress, even if you feel the writings not that great. I think it’s totally normally (especially for NaNo) to feel like it’s coming out badly, no doubt when you read back on it later down the track you’ll realize it’s not that bad at all!
    Good luck with the rest of the month 🙂

    Keep at it. This is the time for writing. But I agree, some times it is so hard to just get the story out and not worry that it is complete drivel.

  3. I don’t think I’ll be done by the end of the month either. 🙂

    but that’s okay. the bulk will be done…

    yeah for returning husbands. mine come home on Friday.

  4. Good to see you back on line!

    I had no plans to let someone die. It was not in the outline, darn it. My MC just learned someone important died. Why didn’t they tell me it was going to happen? Did they think I wouldn’t want to know?? Characters gone wild, that’s what this is, lol.

    Keep plugging away. I started keeping a separate notebook with revision notes in it for later. Just trying to get the ending on paper, and my lovely writing streak comes to a screeching halt, lol.

  5. If you were watching Gilmore Girls your time was not wasted. Think of the quick-witted writing as research and development. *sigh* I’m so sad that show is gone.
