I’m a Winner!

I did it! Just now, I wrote the fifty-thousanth word of my novel. I think the word itself was ‘careful’. I’d like to think that meant something, but I fear it doesn’t.

I’m not even done the book, though. I’m at the stage where the good guy goes up against the second-in-command bad guy and depletes his strength somewhat, before calling on Inner Wisdom (or more firepower) to nail the bad guy.

What’s really cool is while I was writing this fifty thousand words (Man, that’s a big number!) I was also contributing every day (But three, I think) to my daily writing group, and managing to post on this blog.

Folks, we have a writer on our hands…

    Congratulations!! It’s cool how the more you write, the more you write. (the opposite also applies – for me, at least)

    Hooray! W00t! Good for you!

    I’m trying to keep my momentum going, albeit at a diminished rate, until the end of the book: but all the work I’ve been delaying piled back on when NaNo came off. So now I’m doing that struggle again between “responsibility” and writing. It was SO nice when writing WAS the responsibility.

    And it is true that the more you write, the more you write. I was shocked to see that my blog did not wither and disappear during November.

    Thank God you guys could still blog. Otherwise, what would I read? What would I do with my time? I would have to get hobbies!

    Ahh, the responsibility of writing, how I love it. It does mean the dust bunnies are kind of elephant-sized, but who cares? I was writing.

    Deb, I’m addicted to blogging. Sending out my minutiae into the universe is something I (sadly) can’t do without.
