NaNo Update #4: Almost There!
Guess what? I hit 40,000 yesterday! *cue cheering* Only 10K to go! Well … until I hit my goal. After that, I’ll probably have another 10K of writing until the book is finished … maybe more!
I feel like I’m not very far into the book yet. I’m officially on point 19 out of 38. So … almost twenty points to go. So technically I could get up to 80,000.
However, I don’t think I will. I think I’ll end up skimming over a good half of the points or reassembling scenes as the story progresses. And, of course, revisions will take out a big chunk in the end.
Only a week and a day left to write my heart out! I’m hoping to actually finish this book in a month, so it’s gonna be craaaazzzzzyyyy. But … I’m going to try. And you never know. I just might succeed.
On non-writing-related news, it’s Thanksgiving tomorrow! As always, we’re going over to my grandparent’s house with my two uncles and their families and my sister and her family (so it’s like 20+ people in my grandma’s house … it’s okay … we compact).
Since they just live across the field from us (or down the driveway and up another driveway, if you prefer), that’s not really a long trip. I’ll probably walk over sometime in the late morning or early afternoon, and I won’t even break a sweat …
So I’m excited about that! I mean, I’m not really a big eater, but there still are lots of tasty food, and I like to see my relatives and all. Not that I don’t see them all the rest of the year, but whatevs.
However you’re celebrating your Thanksgiving (or if you’re not American and … aren’t), be sure to have a great day!
I get tomorrow and the next day off, but I had to do school the rest of the week, including today. *pouts* I get a longer Christmas break, though … so that’s nice.
A couple of you have asked, so … yes, Aubrey is doing very well! She’s an absolute little sweetheart, and I love spending time with her.
Like any border collie, she has a couple weird quirks, but overall, she’s a lovely little thing. Super spunky and active, yet sweet. I really like her personality.
Just FYI, I’ve posted a few pictures of her on social media (and will be posting more soon, hopefully), so that’s a good place to go if you need more adorable. 😉
Other than that … I don’t have much to say. I’m still looking for questions in a big way, so it would be lovely if you could submit a few. (I’ll leave the submission forms open until we actually get around to shooting the vlog, because it might be a while looking at our schedules.)
Hopefully, Bay and I will get a chance to do this soon. We’re going to call it the “How Well Do You Know Me?” vlog. And … we’ve come up with a punishment for the loser.
The loser will have to take an icebath in a plastic kiddy pool in our front yard.
We’re so cruel. Cruelly awesome.
Until next week,
How are you celebrating Thanksgiving? (or … spending Thursday … for the non-Americans …) How’s NaNo going for you? (or … November!) What states/countries
