Happy Turkey Day!

Just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving! Taking a short break from writing to spend a little quality time with my family, and back to work later. Be safe and have fun!

Awesome day

Yesterday was by far the most productive day I have had so far! I wrote 4,000 words within like 3 hours. Go me!! This one is flowing a lot better than I could have hoped.

Nanowrimo is halfway over. If writing at a specific rate per day, the estimated word count is 25,000. *gasp* And I'm still behind. :( OK, guess I better get off the blog, fb, and twitter for today and really get to work again! Hoping everyone has a great day!

Here is my current favorite quote from my 2012 Nanowrimo project "Tempest."

It was like my life was some inside joke and I was the outsider that had no idea what was so funny. I wondered how things could possibly have gotten to this point.~ Cleo

So far, so good. I didn't get as much accomplished this weekend as I had hoped, but I am pleased that I at least got something written. My word count is steadily climbing, and I did learn something already from this whole thing: If you want to try Nanowrimo, start Nov 1, because if you wait like I did, you WILL be stressed about "being behind." Have a great Monday, folks (if there is such a thing as a good Monday)!

Synopsis from my nanowrimo project called "Tempest"

Ok, so entering nanowrimo may not have been the dumbest thing I have ever done. I started last night at about 9pm, and as of today I am already up to 5,000 words. (Now only 45,000 more to go lol) So it looks like there is hope for me after all. Oh, right I almost forgot the teaser. ;)

Have you ever wondered what kind of things the government does that they don't tell us about? Cleo knows exactly what kind of research they do and what they are capable of. She has even been working for them and hiding from them at the same time. Hey, hiding in plain sight does work! At least for a little while it does. When she wakes up in a room that seems devoid of life and has no memory of her life, things get a bit tense. She is accosted by an extremely handsome man that goes from anger management material to concerned for her well being in an instant. As if that weren't enough to worry about, there's this strange woman that appears in her dreams, not to mention the circumstances regarding her childhood. Then there are those little things that are always happening. Things she has no explanation for. Hang on to your hats, cause this ride ain't for the faint of heart.

Genius or a total dummy...

Ok, so I'm either really smart or really stupid...I just started nanowrimo and I'm already 9 days behind. It's a different story than the one I've been working on, but I think getting my mind off the little dilemma I've created on the one I've been working onwill help me figure out my issues. Well, anyway wish me luck, because I have 46,000 more words to get down before December! *bites fingernails*
Either way, hope you like this one. It even has a title: Tempest. If all goes well this weekend, I might even be willing to post a little teaser or excerpt for ya! ;) Well, back to the grind! Have a fun, yet safe weekend folks!
