Can you believe we're already this far into November? I feel like I'm still at the beginning of October, but no we are ACTUALLY here and it's SOMEHOW BY THE GRACE OF GOD IS IT ACTUALLY COLD. O.O
God knew. O.O XD XD XD
Last year it was all warm and gross, but now in California it's actually like in the 70's so we can wear normal clothing and sometimes sweaters!
*dies of amazingness*
So, yeah! Let's get right into this awesome week of NaNo! :D
So, this day wasn't the best day...this always happens to me where I get ahead in my writing THEN TOTALLY DROP THE BALL AND DON'T WRITE LIKE I SHOULD. XD
But my goal was to write every single day, even if it was only a little bit, and considering the fact I had a church service to sing at (I had to go to the bathroom so badly during the service, and I was on stage, so I HAD TO LEAVE TO GO TO THE RESTROOM, AND I WAS SURE I WAS GOING TO BURST). I somehow got back in time to sing the last song we had to do, thankfully. O.O
Then after that I had a super long rehearsal for my church's Christmas tea, so I didn't get home until late. Plus I had (and still do have) a cold, so I was very unimpressive today. XD
I was still ahead at this point, so I only wrote some before I went to bed and somehow managed to write nearly 1k!
Although it wasn't my daily word count goal, I was kind of busy drawing this picture---
So, I guess it was pretty productive. :)
A COMPLETE WEEK OF NANO AND HOW DO I CELEBRATE??? By not writing a single word, but let me explain why, my friend...
NIGHTFALL WAS RELEASED!!!! And like every year, we went to the launch party!
Let me share with you some pictures of the experience!
THERE'S SHANNON! Ugh, there's nothing more inspiring than hearing an author talk about their writing experiences and what's happened for them to get where they are now!
We played this fun game of if we thought Shannon was lying or telling the truth, and because of it I learned some fun things...
*Sophie's original name was Agnus McWeeney*
*Fitz was the first character created*
*Keeper of the Lost Cities was originally made as a short story*
*The name given to KotLC by Shannon was Chasing Everblaze*
*Shannon had intentions to kill Sandor in the first book he was in*
VERY INTERESTING, RIGHT. I really loved hearing about it all, even though I knew some stuff from the first couple times going. :)
And then a selfie of Kendra and I waiting for Shannon to show up. Sorry it's a bit blurry, I couldn't get a very decent picture. I guess I was shaking... XD
By the time I got home and was about to write something for NaNo....
It was midnight. O.o
So, I was like- WHATEVER. IT'S A NEW DAY SO IT DOESN'T MATTER ANYWAY.
The day after, I was really reading a lot, although not as much as I wanted to, because I was thinking- I NEED TO WRITE. SO I WILL WRITE.
Or more like, not write, not read, and not do anything worth my time, so the whole day was basically ruined, and I should have just read Keeper while I had the opportunity. O.O
I wrote a lot this day. OuO
AND I WROTE DOWN NOTES FOR THIS POST TO PUT IN SO YOU KNOW IT'S GONNA BE GOOD.
"I reached 25% done! Me, being the most easily scared human being on the earth, nearly jumped out of my seat when the trumpets pumped through the speakers while I was writing. #scaredy-cat #heartwasracing XD XD XD XD"
"ALSO. WHY ZACK. WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO AGAINST MY PLOT POINTS AND DO SOMETHING CRAZY STUPID NOW THINGS ARE DIFFERENT THAN I PLANNED. STOP TALKING TO PEOPLE. (Be like me and be a hermit then it'll be easier okie.)"
Wow, okay. XD
But this day was pretty awesome for writing! I got a lot done, regardless of Zack, my MC, going off and talking to his father and making me panic. -.-
I really need to just make notes for what I did everyday, so I can recall it better. XD XD
I don't remember everything that happened cuz it was just another day at home...BUT IT WAS GOOD REGARDLESS AND I WROTE A LOT. XD It felt like a Saturday cuz Kendra and I just watched My Little Pony all morning and I slept in late... XD
So, this happened today--
If you don't know what Zevelyn is, it's the ship of my character and Jaclynn's character and IT'S OUT OF CONTROL HALP.
So, I drew them. Again. Even though I thought that they were over. And really, now they are. O.O BUT THE SHIP STILL LIVES ON.
Altogether now, I have reached 19,079 words and am getting super close to the halfway point!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!
So, yeah. That has been today and now I'm off to make sundaes with my mom and binge watch TV. XD
How is your NaNo going? Are you ahead, are you behind? What's your story about? Is it going well? TELL ME ALL ABOUT IT! XD
AND THIS POST IS TOO LONG AS IT IS. I SHALL MAKE A SEPARATE POST SOON FOR NANO SNIPPETS OKAY DO NOT BE MAD
