Finished Chapter 1, at 4,141. Goooood stuff. Reina dreamed of dying a living death, woke up, went to class, found her best friend/roommate's mutilated body, called the police, and is now being taken back to the police station to be questioned.

This is where it gets good. I roleplayed the interogation scene with Kati last night. Gods, that was fun. :D

I roleplayed the 911 call, too. Kati has been an incredible help with this WIP--and I'm only just getting started. *pounces on Kati and hugs her* Thanks so much! You're definitely getting a signed copy when it's published. :D

Purries! Done! 50,059, and it's 11:30 and I've been battling exhaustion for about an hour, so that's it for the night. Not nearly done and in the middle of a fun scene, so more to come tomorrow, but that's it for the night.

NaNoWriMo 2003 Winner

Purriespurriespurries! Made it! I've never been so down-to-the-wire in NaNo before. It was kind of nice to see how most NaNo participants feel the night of. ^_^ Usually for me I'm several thousand words at least beyond the 50k by the time Nov 30th rolls around, so waking up the morning of with another 3.5k to go was quite an experience.

But I made it! Yayy! Happiness and hugs all around.

Current count: 48,011
Written today: about 1.5k
Words left: about 2k

I've noticed something. I write much, much faster when I'm not in chat. Well, at least there's one benefit of being unable to access AIM while I'm "home". ^_^

46,555. About 3.6k today. Woot. Only another 3.5k tomorrow. Will not fall behind on this. It's only 3.5k. Failure is not an option.

And for toda, success is a reality. Purries!

46,003. 3k written, 500 left for the day, 4k left for the month.

*mimicks the Little Engine That Could* I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.

Just over 45k. Written 2k today, at least 1.5k left to go for the day. It's not being too difficult--I'm mingling with the family while I write, because my aunt's here, and writing while I listen to them, so it's like I'm not focusing on it quite so much, and it's just...easier. It's slower paced than I did this morning, but it's easier. Not as exhausting.

We'll see how the rest of the day goes. I'm not going to bed until I get my 3.5k done, and every word written after that is one I don't have to write tomorrow. It's going good. I can do this. This is a nice hot sex scene, which are always fun to write, and after this I get to write the confrontation between Rin and the maid who's besooten of Kyl, and finds Rin naked in his bed. That'll be great fun, too. Good stuff.

I can do this.

I had class from 9:30 to 2:00 yesterday, so it was really hard for me to get my words. Sleep exhaustion kept creeping closer and closer, far faster than my word count goal. I ended up going to bed about 12:20, and setting my alarm to get up at 1:10. Stayed up writing from 1:10 until 4:00-ish, and am now at 10,724--only 705 words shy of where I should be. I'm pretty pleased, since I was fully expecting to be abolut 2k short by the time I finally went to sleep.

Made it!

Just passed the 5.7k mark--5,830 to be exact--and with only 32 minutes until midnight. :p Yeesh.

I sure as hell hope tomorrow goes faster, because I've got class from 9:30 to 2:00.

Whew! *collapses in a heap*

Started at 12,605 tonight, and ended at 13,697, so I got almost 1,100 words. In 40 minutes. Not bad, but as it's 1:00, I am heading to bed. Should hopefully get more accomplished tomorrow. Leaving off in the midst of a nice, angsty confession, so it should me all good tomorrow.

Onward, glorious lunatics!

Just checked my comments in the Wyvern's Library of Elfwood, found out that I've got quite a few comments there that hadn't been sent to my email address. And they were GOOD comments, too. Man, that was like an early Christmas present! And..(drumroll please)...I got a "first comment dance"! I was *dying* when I read that! Never imagined *I'd* be getting first comment dance by anyone! That was a very pleasant surprise.

AND, I got my 50k finished for NaNoWriMo! Hot damn and hallelujah! I'm gonna be high off of that for weeks!

Soaring, jumping, bouncing off the walls

and I've got less than 1000 words left to finish the 50k for NaNoWriMo. I am psyched. I wrote just over 2500 words yesterday, and two REALLY powerful and emotional scenes, and now I've got less than 1k to write today, which is so going to be a cinch after the near-2k days I've had to do all ths month. You gotta love fight scenes, and this one was a doozy. Knock-down, drag-out, take-no-prisoners, with both physical violence and divorce threatened, and only an inch away from the physical violence threat being carried out. And it was all because they each loved the other. I was loving it! And then, on top of that, my innocent, soul-less, running completely on instincts like a wild animal MC got thrown into the midst of the storm of emotions, because of her magic link with the two fighting characters. Man, I was so hyped last night, I even got all of my homework finished, on top of the mammoth word count (mammoth for me for right now, anyway).

I can't even sit still, I'm so hyped about this, and I can't wait to start today's writing!

Approx. 1900 words written today, though a bit less, I think. Made my goal, anyway, and in time to watch Judging Amy without having to dash over to the computer during every commercial break. A good day, all told. Not great, but I've definitely had worse. Here's hoping tomorrow's even better.

1984 written today, and my MC lost her soul. The whole last scene was in her POV, after her soul had been stripped from her, and she was running purely on instincts. Very cool and, I think, very powerful. And she took to calling her lover 'danger', which I think is just too cool for words. I don't know why, but it's very neat. And she was all torn between comforting 'danger' and finding safety for herself... Man, I love this scene. This is a cool scene.

Woohoo! Two thousand words written (so far) today, and most of them relatively painless once I realized what Vahe's spell was, and what it's effects were. He creeated these little demon-things (the people call 'em soul-snatchers. They just look like pinpoints of light) that gather people's souls to use as energy, and so now I've got thousands of people running around acting on instict, which has the potential to be REALLY interesting. :) I'm considering, later, having my MC get attacked by one of the soul-snatchers, and writing from the POV of someone who's running purely on instict is looking to be really fun from here. I'm looking forward to it anyway. And the story's shaping up, and while I think I'm going to have MAJOR revision to do to weed out all the BS I wrote just trying to get my 1700 written each day, it could turn out really good. The potential's there, I just need school to ease up enough that I can concentrate on it. Maybe I'll be able to do that over Christmas break. Anyway, I'm really hyped up about the story now, not just plodding along trying to get each day's words done, and I can't wait to keep writing tomorrow. I *love* when it's like this.

Approx. 600 words written, and the scene ended. I don't know what to write next, and I'm afraid I'm not going to get my words done, because I've got an essay rought draft to type up. Ah, well. It's only 4:30. If I could just figure out where this scene goes next, then things might have the chance to go better.

Doing a happy dance

2044 words today, all of them painless, and beyond that, nearly all of them fun! It's been WAY too long since I've had fun like this while writing, and I didn't even realize how much I missed it.'s like dancing on air. I'm sitting here grinning like an idiot, and if I weren't so damned tired I'd probably still be writing.

Going to bed now. I hope tomorrow goes as good as today did!

Made about 10 words over my goal tonight. It was fairly painless, mostly because the last scene was a nice little, uhm, romantic scene. :) It was fun, anyway. And mom's ushering me off to bed. Night!

Cool. 10:45, and I've already got my words done. Yay! And it was really funny, 'cause I told myself I'd write until I had 1,000 words left, then take a break, but when I reached that goal, I kind of sat there and thought "But I like what I'm writing right now. I want to take a break, but I don't really want to stop writing." So I decided to write until I had 700 words left, and the same thing happened. I finally took a break when I had about 175 words left, 'cause it was starting to not be much fun anymore. But I just played a couple games on Neopets, then played a game of FreeCell, and went back to writing. I'm really going to take a break now, though, because I want to go down and watch some more of the extra features on the Shrek DVD. I'll probably write more later, though.

Happy birthday to me! Today's my 16th b-day. Yay! I've already gotten most of my presents--Jen gave me a butterfly candle, Dad gave me a trip to see STOMP, T is going to take me to Barnes and Noble, Mom gave me a writing notebook, a set of HUGE spiral-bound index cards for story ideas, a fat pencil 'cause I lost mine, an Into the Woods DVD, and two Big Kat bars, 'cause it's my sweet 16. :) Danielle said she was really upset 'cause she didn't get me anything, but that's okay. Really, the only specific thing I wanted was Into the Woods, and I got that, so I'm happy.

Gotta get back to writing now. 700 words to go, and Blade and Zak just made it to the shore. Yippee!
allichaton: (Default)
Wow. I only got about 500 words written yesterday, because Dad took me and Danielle and Jen to see STOMP. Wow! That is such a totally awesome show. I loved it! Not only was it fun and entertaining, but there was a lot of comedy in it. I had a blast. I'll have to make up the words this weekend, but I don't care. I'd do it again.

I've got about 700 words left to write tonight, and I dont' know WHY I'm on the internet. I shouldn't be and I know it, but I got sucked into procrastinating. Drat. Anyhoo, it shouldn't be too terribly difficult to get the rest of the words. The characters are rather confused, and confusion makes for good writing.
