We were invited to the home of some good friends for a merging of the families for Thanksgiving dinner, and thus had very little to do in advance. Despite minor distractions from the Macy’s parade on TV and changing batteries in Junior’s Geotrax train set, I managed 2000 words, to get me to a very respectable total, just a few hundred words behind pace:
42760 / 50000 words. 86% done!
Careening towards 50,000 words and the end of NaNoWriMo, although nowhere near done with the first draft, which I figure will come out to 80-90K in the end.
We had a very relaxed Thanksgiving, in pajamas until 1pm then got dressed and joined our friends for a ridiculously immoderate feast. We finally left around 11pm because the kids cracked and admitted they were tired.
Hope your Thanksgiving was as good, or for those outside the U.S., hope you had a wonderful Thursday.
Damn. I don’t know how you do it. I’ve had zero inspiration to write anything this month.
I think the only way to get through NaNo is to make inspiration irrelevant. You have to just treat it like a second job and get your words in.
Congretualtions Lori. Bravo for your success and your un-relenting determinations. Whem do you think we may read your novel in the reading club!
I thought I told you never to call me Lori on this blog! That’s just for the other blog. The secret blog.
Seriously, Mary Beth, I think you’ve got me confused with someone else. I am (a) not Lori, and (b) not in a reading group. That said, should your reading group be interested in a dramatic reading of mainstream Mafia thriller set in Chicago and the Bahamas, let me know and when I’m done, my manager will consider it.
