Week One of NaNoWriMo

Week one of NaNoWriMo has been most victorious. I only took one day off. I've met 99.9 percent of my own personal goals. I am at 31,328 words. That's 1/3 of the projected 90k. I'm really enjoying my story. I do worry the hero is coming in too late, but there's enough going on that I think it's ok. I feel bad for my completely clueless character, who has no idea she is living in a murder-death-kill house. Shhhh! Don't tell her.

I'm starting to stress myself because I still haven't written queries for the 3 novels I am hoping to start subbing come first of the year. So yeah. There's that.

Now - to keep the fire stoked and the course plotted! This next week has its challenges as I have some romance to sprinkle in. And I haven't tied in how the romance dips and valleys while the haunting and the shenaniganry heat up. Romance is always a tricky thing. But one thing is for sure. It doesn't write itself.



  1. Awesome progress. I'm so jealous of your word count.

  2. Thank you! And thank you for stopping by. good luck with your own count!

  3. Congratulations, amazing progress! I've tweeted this article, so inspirational! :D
