Hey everybody, can you believe we’re halfway through NaNo already??? Where the hell has the time gone?
I’m almost on track; current word count of 23,088, so should make it to the necessary 25K by the end of the day.
Of course, as always seems to be the way, several other projects have been thrown in my path, trying to distract me, and yes, I have definitely been distracted. However, unless something definite happens, I’m hoping to remain on track.
Is the novel actually any good though? I honestly still have no idea. I hope so. I really, really hope so—I wouldn’t be writing the story otherwise. But I don’t think it will be until I am able to give it a good scrub and polish that I’ll be able to decipher if it is a diamond in the rough, or just a plain rock.
Several people have offered to look at it for me (and thank you, you know who you are) but I NEVER allow anyone to see a WIP until it is exactly how I intend it to be—something that has prevented me joining crit groups. How can anyone judge my work when it is not how I want to it to be?
How is everyone else getting on? Are you enjoying the whole experience or has it been a nightmare? On track, way ahead, or falling waaaaay behind? I’d love to hear your stories!
