I got up before the sun, opened my NaNoWriMo project and wrote a total of five words. It would appear I’ve been “second weeked.” I had no idea such a condition existed, but apparently it’s fairly common during NaNo. Go like gangbusters the first week and then like Wiley Coyote, crash headlong into the fake tunnel painted on the brick wall by the Road Runner. I’m going to try and catch up, and I think I can. It’s one of those bridge sections I’m stuck on. I know what scene I need to get to, I just don’t quite know how to get there. When that happens, I do a lot of staring out the window and working things out in my head. So believe it or not, a lot of writing got done this morning, it just hasn’t found its way onto the page/screen yet. Such is the writing process.
So, for anybody participating in NaNo, how’s it going? I see a lot of people are doing really well, a few people I know are even going for two books during the month! That’s spectacular!
Another thing that happened this week, (which I thought was pretty cool and part of why I love the Internet so much), was a couple of Monday Mug Shots springing up at other blogs! Check them out here and here. I love the stories behind their mugs and the mugs themselves. They’re great. It’s also a great example of how the Internet, in ways you could never imagine, can bring people together. Of course it can tear people apart too, but I’m going for a more happy vibe today. So anyway, let’s see more mugs and hear more stories!
So how was your week? Any news or insights? Have a great weekend!!
