11/30/12: I don't mean to brag ... okay, yes I do. I won the NaNoWriMo challenge again! But there's a difference this year, and that's the fact that the novel is not done yet. 50,241 words since the first of November and I still have some story to go. Stephie says that she really likes what I've done so far, and has given me some of her theories about how it's going to end, but I'm not telling her if she's right or not. She'll have to wait until I finish. I'm hoping that's going to be tomorrow, after which, I'm taking a little break from fiction writing.

Except, of course, for my annual review at work, which is due next week.


11/26/12: Almost there! I know how the book is going to end, and I don't know that I will get there by Friday, but I do know I will be at 50,000 words by Friday (maybe even Thursday,) and that's all that's required to "win" the NaNoWriMo challenge. I'm so confident I'm going to order my winner's t-shirt tomorrow!

11/22/12: Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. We had the family over, and Stephie made another amazing holiday meal. We all had a great time, and after everyone left, I got a chance to work on my novel some more. Looks like I may make my goal!

11/18/12: I had a fairly busy weekend. Saturday night was the last Tamale Hut Cafe Reading Series event for the year, and my story was well received, even though it was significantly darker than my usual fare.
     Sunday, we got to see the Packers on TV, since the Bears are on Monday night this week, and then started to clean the apartment in advance of everyone coming over for dinner on Thursday.
     And between all that, I was able to make some pretty good progress on my novel, as you can see from the chart here. Although, looking at the chart, it seems that when it's calculating my "words per day to finish on time", they think that there are 31 days in November.

11/13/12: Last day of my November vacation, and I'm back on track, word count-wise. The story is flowing pretty well, and I like what I'm writing. Now all I have to do is keep up this pace for at least another 29,000 words. And in 17 days!

11/10/12: Still playing catch-up, but I'm getting there. The story is not flowing as easily as it did the last two times I did this, but I am still moving along. (I'm still working tonight, but I need to put my word count in before midnight or else it will look like I didn't do anything today. I already have one day of no activity this month. I can't afford another.)
     But I did have a pleasant surprise today, in that one of my local beer stores has received a supply of my current favorite brew, Breckenridge Pandora's Bock, which I wasn't expecting until after the first of the year since it's a seasonal item. I picked up a few, and expect it to fuel my noveling for the rest of the month.

11/07/12: As predicted, I've put myself in a hole, both with not writing at all yesterday because of watching the election results, and with a bit of writer's block today, but I expect to make up word count tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed.

11/05/12: Falling a little behind today, and don't expect to do much writing tomorrow due to the election, but I'm not worried because I have a mini-vacation coming up starting later in the week, and I expect to catch up and get ahead, once we're past the election. Don't forget to vote!


11/01/12: That's right, I'm doing it again this year. Today is the first day of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. So like I did the last two Novembers, I will be trying to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. What am I, nuts? Yeah, maybe I am, but I always work better with a deadline, and this is a tough one. I know from experience that if I fall behind on this, it's not easy to catch up, so I'm going to try to not let that happen. I've taken a snapshot of the nifty chart that the NaNoWriMo site provides to help you keep track of your progress. I will try to update it daily, so you can see how well I'm doing. As usual, I'm starting out a little slow, but I finished the last two years in 29 days, so I'm not worried. Wish me luck!
