I did it! I crossed the 50k line tonight! Well, I probably actually crossed it sometime this noon, but I typed across the 50k line tonight and validated everything tonight and holy crap, you guys! Fifty thousand words is a lot of freaking words!
Okay, so that’s my excitement for the night then. I know I can write another 50k because I’ve done it before (The Lokana Chronicles is roughly 100k) and that it will probably take that many more before my story is all done, but I’m just trying to focus on one thing at a time right now, especially since I was hoping to have this story nearing completion by this point in time. I can’t believe I’ve been working on it for almost a year now and I’m only half done. I had hoped to be so much further along than this! But I suppose that’s just the way it goes, huh? That that’s all part of being a mother/wife/friend/office drone/writer. There are only so many hours in the day and I only get one of them, sometimes two, to write.
But I’m greedy – I want more.
Luckily, my work schedule is about to get a lot less hectic, so that should help. Naptime will once again be writing time! And with school starting back up in just a few short weeks, perhaps homework time can be writing time, too? I guess we’ll see.
In the meantime, I’m going to celebrate my Camp Nano win by going to bed early tonight. I could definitely use the sleep. How has everyone else done with their Nano goals? If you haven’t done Nano, why not try it come November?
