NaNoWriMo - Day 17

We decided to take a weekend away in the Drakensberg, and you have to agree the view is a spectacular one. My writing is not spectacular in progressing towards my target though, but I am getting some words in. It is difficult to write when such a scene is before me, but then again it is a terrific inspiration too :)

Thanks for letting me share the pic, Francois! Hubby did an HDR with 5 photographs of the view from the Berghouse and Cottages in the Northern Drakensberg, near Bergville.

NaNoWriMo - Day 14

Yes, I have fallen behind on my crazy schedule, but I am still writing and still having fun. My story has taken a few unexpected twists, but that is not really a bad thing. The end goal is still the same, my plot is only taking a more interesting route to get there.

Thinking back, and knowing where I stand now in terms of writing it, I didn't plot as well as I should have. Lesson learned. With the editing still to be done, whenever that is going to happen, I can always fix the little glitches that have cropped up along the way.

My favourite line so far:  "I wanted you to myself for a few minutes without them hovering over you like bees on a flower."

NaNoWriMo - Day 9

I think I should call it Linzé's Insanity day 9 instead! This target is bigger than I thought, and I am still behind. We do  have a write-in tomorrow, so I hope to make some serious headway into getting the deficit smaller. Problem is also getting the 4k for everyday also done on top of the number of words that I am behind at this stage!

To get back on target I need to double my word count (as it stands now @ 28885) in four days. So here I go, and I am not giving up, yet!

NaNoWriMo - Day 7

I called it motivation at the beginning of the month, now I am calling it insanity! 

My 120k target is looking more and more like a light fading away on the horizon. The weekend is coming, and I really need to put some effort in.

NaNoWriMo - and its Day 4!

I have jumped in guns blazing. After falling behind my target on Friday, I have now caught up and I am actually about two thousand words ahead at 17483 words.

It remains a tough target that I set for myself, and I need to be spending more hours each day writing that what I have available.

We had our first write-in yesterday and that helped a lot for me to get caught up, so that I could spend today to get ahead.

So its a short post today - like many more to come this month - but the words are flowing, and that is exactly what I need in November.
