All Night Character Sketch Marathon

Posted on January 7, 2011. Filed under: Life After Nano, Staying-With-It, writing | Tags: , , , , , , |

Started writing character sketches (using Scrivener’s way to organize things), and stayed up all night doing them. Upped my word count to 28588, so 30K is now within another day’s writing. Seems like I might be getting things going again, a much needed restart, but now I have to sleep.

December 2010: The Holidays are Here and Nano is Gone

Posted on December 10, 2010. Filed under: Life After Nano, Staying-With-It | Tags: , , , , , |

Looks like a window has arrived, here in the middle of the winter holidays, for a post Nano processing.  That means I can start producing words again for my unfinished novel.  Nothing really sophisticated about this, but I think it is the first time I have taken an unfinished Nano novel and become determined to finish it.  Sometimes “productivity” is just about “staying with it.”

Stay tuned.

Day 13 and no words for two days.  More “life stuff” than anything else.  Restarts are so damned hard!

Day 6 First Restart

Posted on November 6, 2010. Filed under: Staying-With-It, writing | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Somehow missed yesterday.  Now need 3,000 words to catch up.  Ooops.

Update:  Amazingly, I did it.  I’m caught up, but not much more.  I had hoped to be a day or two ahead this weekend, but as of now I’m only barely ahead.

Maybe tomorrow….

And, a question, when you are doing Nanowrimo stuff, tweeting on Twitter about it, blogging on your blog, do you find that your searches are really different, and what you read is really different, from what you do the rest of the time?
