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 🙂
