I have been busy ... Writing! And with life in general, getting ready for thanksgiving, homeschooling (actually we took a "fall break" this week) etc.

So the current word count is. 40,000. Which is the minimum for Saturday. I am SO on track here :) If I find time tommorow to write I will, if not I'll write a bunch at the write-in Sat. The thing is if I can find time tommmorow AND saturday I could have 45,000 by the end of Saturday. And then i'm in the h o m e stretch.

So exciting to finish this year, because last spring, knowing I would be homeschooling, I said there is no way I can do it. But I decided there is no giving up with me. I tried anyway. And here I am. I've even kept up with everything better than ever before. That is so cool.

18,157
I wrote 2,911 today & 117 yesterday.

and, actually, since tommorows minimum is 18,337 I am going to go ahead and continue to that or beyond and regain my ahead by one days minimum status.

I was looking at my report card document, and I have had 4 close to or beyond 3k writing days, wait make that 3. One of the days was not much over 2k. So it really doesn't take that much to keep up. I broke up my writing today, doing some in the morning, er, early afternoon and the rest tonight (started around 7;30 tonight)

Now to hit tommorows minimum (at least) and go eat something (even though I cooked a big dinner and we ate around 6:45ish tonight. i'm eating for two. i'm hungry).

I know I didn't update last night, honestly I wrote under 1k yesterday. Not too impressive, 400 from todays minimum. So I had to write more today to make up for it ;)

Is it tempting to keep writing and hit 15k today? Hell yes. But i'm not going to, it is past midnight, I am crampy and tired and likely need more water. Yell it at me, drink more WATER.

im craving cranberry juice & big soft pretzels with mustard.

Why did I skip the atown write in's last year? From now on those are the only ones i'm hitting. So much fun, even for us quiet people sitting in the corner, distracting others with the ravelry . . .

I have done a little planning, I know my main characters name and a little bit about her. But not the conflict/plot/any other characters yet. I can't think too much into that this early or I will be very frustrated ;)

But at least i'm getting started.

Getting ready for Nano 2007. This year is a little different, i'm homeschooling my son. And pregnant, but that shouldn't be an issue (other than me trying to get used to the idea of a fifth child, and a spring baby at that). Anyway, no clue what i'm writing about but i'm looking forward to it. I am excited about our new FW area ML. I can't wait for the kick off. I don't know that I will do many write-in's, maybe one a week, who knows.
