How are we doing? Click on "comment" under this post and let us know your word count! Did my 1667 today, but I feel like I'm writing a Dick & Jane book: see Pepper. See Pepper run. Run, Pepper, run!
How about you? How are you feeling?
Our philosophy is simple: fun and work, humour and support. We write all genres and in all styles and support each other by providing encouragement and helping each other develop thick skins in the face of industry rejections. We understand that as writers we must do the majority of the work ourselves and we embrace this by giving honest critiques mixed with gentle grace and lots of humour.

Trying to get the hang of posting, but the first day word count was 737, second day was 816 and today it was 771. I hope this posts!ReplyDelete
That's awesome Jacquie!!! Way to go!ReplyDelete
Thanks Natasha! I do understand about repeating words. Jordie zigs then zags how many times can I have him do that?? But this is all about the challenge, and I can see that everyone is focused on their task, this is great fun.ReplyDelete
I'm sitting at 3400 words! Great job everyone. I feel a bit the same way, as though my characters are running around in a sea of landmines with explosions going off repeatedly. I do my writing extremely late when I'm about to pass out at the keyboard, and last night was extremely difficult. I felt the same way as Natasha -- 28 more days of this?! The great thing is the concentrated effort makes you really get into your story and build internal excitement.ReplyDelete
That's great work, Hal! HA HA--when it comes to NaNo, IIII feel like I'm running around in a sea of landmines. :PReplyDelete
**** Day 3 **** +1783 = 4395 Words ****ReplyDelete
Being an unemployed bum, definitely allows me to do a fair bit of writing, but I wonder how long it will last. My numbers are going to do down over the weekend, that much I'm pretty sure about.
Hey Howard, you're doing awesome, don't sell yourself short! I'm at 5300 words now, booyah! Wrote on the bus to and from Tacoma / Seattle and got some scenes I really like, and have been waiting to do.ReplyDelete
I also went to an Asian Art Museum today that was fantastic, and reminded me of all the possibilities for cultural creation in SF which I love. Writing's so exciting!
Hal's right, Howard. Demeaning you is OUR job (MUUWAAHHAAHWWAAHHAA!!!).ReplyDelete
Seriously, though, you're rocking the challenge--more than halfway to your goal! You should be proud of yourself!
And Hal, way to go on the writing!! You're doing ssoo good.
All we have to do is put one word after another. We keep doing that, we'll reach out goals, my friends, so let's keep going!!
