Yahoo!! We’ve made it to just over halfway through the month!
Life is crazy but we’re somehow managing to keep up with writing. 🙂
I’m finding I definitely write best at night, so that’s usually when I catch back up.
Oh! I’m excited to say that my characters are taking over the story more and more and sometimes I’ll have no idea why I’m writing something only to be like, “…..Cool!!!” two pages later! 🙂 Although there was a time I was so frustrated with my MC that I told Mal I wanted her to get abducted by aliens
(and….he loved the idea). But no. I have given her grace and she gets to continue her life on earth. The story is progressing fairly well, I think. ;P This week I pulled a section and traded a few scene’s places…before I knew it my document looked like alphabet soup! Thankfully I was able to straighten all that out and keep the story going. 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I’m bad at choosing excerpts…here’s a quick one for you!
Jordan sets his skateboard down under the bicycle rack and I sit down to take off my rollerblades.
“Whoops, Jord I forgot shoes,” I say sheepishly.
He shrugs. “Sorry, you have to stay out here then.”
“I’ll be right back,” he says, pulling one arm out of his backpack and hurrying inside.
I lean against the wall, waiting and hoping he’ll remember to buy a snack without me there to remind him. A red car pulls into a parking spot five or six spaces away. I watch the people get out, absentmindedly. Suddenly I jump — Nolin!
I can’t let him see me! Kicking off my rollerblades faster than he could open the passenger door, I pull my jeans down over the thick black socks and decide they’ll work as shoes for today. I duck behind the store’s decorative column and dash in side.
My second best piece of NaNo advice is get some great friends to do it with. =)
My best NaNo advice is get a brother to do it with you. =) It’s been a blast!
Fantastic job, Wrimos! Keep up the good work! I’m really enjoying watching your stories grow more and more! And I can’t wait to read them! 😉 Keep writing!
Oh, by the way, I cut my hair this month. 🙂 I was able to donate 12 inches of it to Wigs For Kids, a place in Ohio that makes wigs for children with cancer out of real hair.
Megan, the lady who cut it, said that sometimes the children are given the contact info of the donors and they write to them with some of their story.
I’m not expecting that but think it would be pretty awesome if it happened! 🙂
