Short Update but Necessary: ROW80

I didn’t realize how much NaNo would kick my ass this month. Add in all the traveling I did and I’m surprised that I’m even ahead of my goal for the month. A lot of it is crap..and by a lot I mean a lot…but the words I have written are the most I’ve ever written EVER for a story. So I;’m happy. The editing process is going to be tough and it’ll stretch out over a couple of months, but I happy with my progress  Now all I have to do is actually finish it, edit, and submit it somewhere where it’ll hopefully be picked up and published. But I can worry about that over the coming months. 😛

Writing Goals

NaNoWriMo (Goal: 2k per day): I’m about 2 days ahead, currently sitting at 40,439 words. Got less than 10k to go and I’ll have crossed the finish line!

General (Goal: Write every morning): Completely failing at this. The past few days have seen me in a writing slump but I’ve made up for it. I realized that I write the best during sprints where I can talk and challenge myself against others. I might go back to writing in the morning, but I think what I’m doing now works for me. We’ll see what truely happens when Dec. 1st rolls around.


Pen, Paper & Imagination (Goal: post everyday about my writing): I’ve posted every day, yay! Updating this blog is super easy since writing is what I’m focusing on for November. However, I will have to figure out what I should do once November is over, i.e. blog every week, have certain topics, etc.

Quiet Contemplations (Goal: blog 3x per week): This is going to be on hold until I’m done with NaNo aka December 1st. I’ll start thinking up topics over the next week but my posts are going to be nonexistent until the end of the month.

Overflowing Bookshelves (Goal: Draft posts for the rest of the year): I’m doing alright on drafting my posts but I need to work on them some more. I’ve signed up for a blog-a-thon bash in January where I’ll really work on the nuts and bolts of my blog.

Jusani Blogging Goals (Goal: Draft the last 3 articles): Didn’t work on it. Will make a list of ideas this week and starting thinking about how to write them.

    Congrats on being ahead and doing so well with NaNo. I hope it continues to go well for you. And editing long pieces is interesting. But you should wait to think on that (until you get to that stage). Stay focused and doing awesome.

    You sound delightfully busy.

    I find that I shift focus amongst many things through the year, and it’s not always predictable. I hope you find December projects that inspire!

    Cheering you on to the NaNo finish line! =D
