This has been a mammoth week, writing wise. My NaNo is up about 20k since last Sunday and I’m planning on hitting 40k tonight – as soon as I’m done with this entry, I’m getting back to it. I’ve hit an exciting part!
It’s going so well that I’ve decided to do something really inadvisable and shoot for a double NaNo. I’ve always wanted to do one but before now I’ve always felt I didn’t have the time. If I hit 40k tonight, I’ll just need to maintain an average of 3333 words a day till the end of the month which looking at my current stats is doable. And might just get me to the end of this book, which would be amazing!
In other news, I’ve been enjoying writing so much this week that I’ve started working on Annique again after putting it on hold for NaNo. So, that’s currently sitting at 44k and climbing.
In non-writing news, I’ve been keeping up with Dirk Gently, re-watching season one of Dirk Gently (sensing a theme?) and listening to a lot of Queen, for both NaNo and non-NaNo reasons.
I went to Inky Fingers at Lighthouse Books on Tuesday and sadly had to leave early for illness reasons. Really sad to leave because the performances were so high-quality! I did however attend all of Event Horizon at Banshee Labyrinth, which also had some really high-quality acts.
And yesterday I gave blood. A lot more bleedy than I anticipated (failed my test the first time) but I got a tunnock’s teacake afterwards so no real complaints.
Next week I intend to write. A lot.
