Weekly Writing Check In - Just when you get ahead...

Even though I really need to finish up my camp manuscript by this time tomorrow (because I have a business trip the last two days) I have to stop 1k short of today's goal because I'm just too dang tired. Writing whilst tired only works if they're sexy scenes, after all. And this is not a sexy scene. More like a bloody scene. *sigh*

Camp Nanowrimo/CROSS//Process

My goal for today was 37k, but I'm stopping at just a little of 36k. I had a six-day work week this past week, which wasn't bad before I got internet back on Thursday...heh, guess what I spent all Thursday night doing? ;D 4k left doesn't sound too bad when it just turned the 29th here, but like I mentioned above I have a business trip on the 30th and 31st and have to take my crappy little laptop with me that will shit itself at the thought of opening Word, let alone verifying a huge 50k document. So I hope to have it finished by the time I leave! It'll happen, I'll just have to sit down tomorrow and pound out that 4k in little 1k increments. I still wrote 12k this past week and that's nothing to sneeze at.


Reread the first 100 pages that I've written so far to refresh myself on where i'm at so I can get to work on drafting a bit of an outline for the remainder. I'm still not quite sure where in the story I'm at, or what kind of climax I want it to have a the end. I'm not worried though - this is how CROSS//Rebirth started in the writing process, and I ended up writing a climatic conclusion that I'm very happy with in terms of events and characterization. Sad lack of gratuitous porn, however. How am I supposed to be amused by the such easter eggs I leave myself when there aren't any?! Sigh, on my ~to do~ list for nano this year, obviously.


I'd much prefer to have a more chipper entry for this week, but you see, it was a six day work week and I spent my Sunday shopping and walking around in the city aaaand ;D It's bed time! I have a date with the City Hall tomorrow...and then my vacuum cleaner afterwards. Oh, and a manuscript apparently...sigh.


  1. Hello I just joined your urban fantasy group! Looking forward to getting to know you.

  2. Sometimes, it feels like there's never enough time to spew what's in your head on to the screen/paper in a manner which would not have you laughed at/be rather messy. Finishing a novel, finally, is one of the best feelings in the world, though.
