My main’s doing quite well at this point in the expansion. I’m exalted with all the reps except Shadopan [16k/21k] and August Celestials [9k/21k]. I’ve maxed out every profession at least once, so I have access to them all on my main server. I’ve gotten two alts to 90 – including my horde alt on another server [yay achievements!]
I’ve killed Heroic Nefarian, finished the “Glorious” achievement of killing the rares, managed Galleon kills two times [got nothing], am best friends with everyone on the farm and even have my second alt to 90 exalted with the tillers [and all I did on her was login, replant her farm and do the tiller dailies in 15 mins or so]. I’ve done a couple Firelands retro runs, and even killed the first boss of Mogushun Vaults with whomever we could pull together in guild and a couple out of guild friends. We also got the second boss to 26%.
Pet Battles have been what’s fallen to the wayside. I know they’ve captured most people’s attention instead of all the other but for me it’s been the reverse. I really want to do more for that in the coming few weeks as I’d like to get the upper level pets and I’d be ready for 5.1. It just… well the grind to get a level 25 pet seems so painful looking. My highest level pet is 10 right now.
I would post some screen shots, but at the moment I am without my computer 😦 The hard drive died and since I have the laptop [and access to Venoym’s computer during the day], we decided it would be easier just to wait till the weekend to swap some drives about. So, when he can move the data over, I will have some screenies, though I have posted a few things on twitpic.
National Novel Writing Month is this month and I have written a bit thus far… I’m still not sure I’m participating. I’ve already written 125k this year [my goal was 100k, but I revised that and raised it to 150k] so I’m not sure I want to push myself to cram another 50k in but I’m writing daily as is… I may just see what happens.
I finished several days ago [before Thanksgiving]. The story still isn’t done, but we’ll see how far it goes 🙂 It’s a Leverage story entitled “The Four Pair Job”.
42020 / 50000 words. 84% done!
Well… I’m in the home stretch of NaNo. The story has come to me faster than I could have dreamed – I wrote my daily goal today in about 45 minutes and I even wrote extra. I’m still aiming for the 1667 daily target [I like that blue bar to be full] and I’ve met it all but a 2-3 days. I’ve even exceeded it significantly a couple times. Each night instead of just laying awake trying to go to sleep, I’ve been plotting out some of the next day’s story [and I usually fall asleep before I’m done]. So eh 🙂 I’m actually enjoying it quite a bit and it’s not taking over my life.
This progress was probably helped along by the fact that our guild took a couple weeks break from raiding [we’re now back and working on Raggy again… just a hair from phase 3].
The lock I’m leveling with Endyme’s baby priest hit level 60 last night. The undead hunter I worked on a bit during the 2 week break is level 50 [heirlooms and guild xp really is sick]. Askevar [my main] got the 378 tanking boots crafted the other day. Hubby should be getting them tomorrow with luck.
So it’s actually been a quiet month.
November is National Novel Writing Month [NaNoWriMo]. I’ve participated several times… never actually finished but eh… I think I’m going to participate again. I’ve got a story in progress that I desperately want to completely rewrite and redo and add on to so I’m going to use this as an excuse to finally sit down and do that. I’ll see how much I can get done and progress will be made – which is what I’m aiming for. If I happen to hit the 50k word count… that’s great!
I know it’s probably a completely backwards way of going about it… but with a three year old, a bunch of Real Life stuff going on and WoW responsibilities and goals… it’s going to be hard to get that much done I suspect.
So we’ll see 🙂
