NaNoWriMo Day 25 #NaNoWriMo #NaNoWriMo2017

#Gilmorethemerrier is still going on…and I have been way too distracted by it.

I’ve written some fun words today – “askance” and “flabbergasted” being two amazing examples.

After struggling my way to climb to 30k (got stuck at 27k and then 28k and then 29k for days), the path to 40k has been much easier. I wrote 6k today and am at almost 39k. Woo! I love long weekends and holidays. I might write more tonight, or I might get some other things done that I should do. We shall see.

My goal was 40k, but I’m really close. I’ll do a bunch more writing tomorrow, and I’m not worried. I actually think I’ve got enough material to get to at least 60k. So I just have to decide if I want to wrap things up, and try and stuff as much into this month as possible, or write after the month is over. Both have pros and cons.


You had to have it all
Well, have you had enough?
You greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve

NaNoWriMo Day 24 #NaNoWriMo #NaNoWriMo2017

I didn’t write yesterday, because I was busy eating turkey and hanging out with cool friends 🙂

Tonight I didn’t write as much as I wanted to, but I did pretty well. I also joined the late night Seattle Wrimo discord channel. Discord is pretty much like Slack, so I felt at home right away. I haven’t gone to a Seattle Wrimo gettogether yet, but I think I’ll hang out on Discord fairly often.

I sometimes am totally a millennial.

Also, I’m going to download the Discord app, to make things easier. And… for the first time ever, I see the point of the app stores that Microsoft and Apple have setup. I still don’t want one on my computer (I have Win 7). But googling and finding the right download, while easier than years ago, still takes more effort than a quick search and one-click that the desktop app stores provide. Huh.

Anyway, blogging after midnight again, since I wrote right up to the wire. 🙂 Gonna go read some Pratchett now.
