I dug in and wrote today, even though it's Tuesday and Tuesdays are my long days at work. I wrote longhand, so of course I had to type it all up when I got home. Considering that I had a lot of really important stuff to do when I got home, like play video games, I didn't get started typing until about an hour ago.
I typed over 2,000 words before I quit just now because I have to get to bed. And I didn't even finish typing up everything I wrote! I think I'll do okay in Nano this year after all.
The story is rocketing along. I really like the character of May. She's very different from any character I've ever written--tough, confident, practical, and stubborn--and she and her maybe-pirate boss snark at each other constantly, which is a lot of fun to write. The writing may not be first-rate, but I'm having fun.
*sigh* My non-nano story has cows. Lots and lots of cows, with nary a pirate in sight.
As long as you're having fun - that's all that counts!
Nat - check udder the patches, could be a swarthy fellow hiding betwixt the heifers!
Yes, I'll leave now. (It's been a long day)
Glad that you're having fun with it. I've fallen behind the past couple of days and will have some making up to do on the weekend.
Natalie--Maybe the cows are actually pirates. By day they're mild-mannered cows, by night they roam the seas.
Alan--I'm hoping to get ahead tomorrow when I'm off work.
I still cannot believe that you're NaNoing LONGHAND. I think there should be a special award for that. Yowza.
I am with Carrie on this one. Wow. You are a glutton for punishment. Excellent progress though.
Carrie and Jamie--I'm not doing all of it longhand, just the parts I write when I'm not at the computer. Also I have terrible, scrawly handwriting and use very good pens so my hand doesn't hurt that much.
I'd still like a reward. Maybe a trophy.
I love your characters, even if we haven't met. Mine tend to be neurotic and frightened.
My characters tend to be a little bit timid and worry a lot. May is a nice change from that.
I spent the day sizing up my colleagues. You may be right, I think there's some pirates here. :D
KC, my main character is different to others I've written as well. Quite interesting, isn't it.
Cate--The eyepatches and tendency to say "arrr" are dead giveaways. :)
Danielle--I think that's part of the magic of nano, trying new things. After all, if it doesn't work we're only out a few weeks of writing.
You really, really need to invest the time to learn Gregg shorthand. :)
I wouldn't be able to read it. I can barely read my own handwriting, and it hasn't changed substantially in decades. :)
