Day 6: November 6

Oh my word, the craziness! I’ve been on school-induced lock down for the past couple of days, and when I had a spare moment I thought I’d rather use it for, you know, writing, instead of blogging about the lack of writing. However, I am going to go horseback riding in about an hour, and so have a bit of time to blog now. Which is why I’m here, blogging. Now. Anywho, please to enjoy this video if you can make it work on your browser (my own is painfully slow because apparently it’s from the Dark Ages). It’s from yesterday so the day is wrong. And also, keep on scrolling because this is not in fact the end of the blog post:)

I have had my first Word War as well as my first Write or Die session, and let me tell you, they work wonders. The writing is the type you’d scream at and run away from because it’s about as horrible as Frankenstein, but whatever. Editing is for December. If you know me, you know that typos drive me up the wall. I would now like to announce that I have overcome my inner editor and frankly no longer care. *celebrates* Anyway, that said, here is my progress for the month so far.

Word count: 12,047
Cups of coffee: 23
Feeling: faaaantastic (eyes hurt though)
Number of freak outs: 1
Total solid meals eaten: 5
Procrastination: 3
Other: africanstardust is currently unavailable because she is building a writing altar. Please leave a message at the beep. *beep*

    Your video is so cute! But now, forever more, I shall hear it pronounced Rhino. Grrr! Lol! But yea, I say Wrimo like Rhino, not reemo. Are you going to get your book proofed??? I TOTALLY AM!!

    Same person’s 2008 NaNo:

    Eeeeee!! It’s FREE incl p&p!!!! And to have my own novel in paperback, even unpublished, its gonna be awesome!! Amazing incentive to finish! And I’m not telling any of my family or friends, so it’ll be a huge surprise when I say “Oh by the way, after NaNo I got THIS! :D” And the offer is (reportedly) available for 6mths after NaNo so there is time for editing πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Weeee I’m so flipping excited!!
