2,745 words!



Can't talk now. Am wooting around the kitchen... look at me woot, shaking my thang. See that thang? I got some junk in my trunk, baby, and it's shaking, look at that thang shake!

FIRST day of National Novel Writing Month is DONE and I have slammed 2,745 words down on that keyboard, surpassing my goal of 2,000 words. THIS, in spite of a busy day at the office!

I got involved with NaNo at the last minute, only because a couple of other girls in my writers' group (we are all girls, even though we're as old as Alan Davidson's fez, and we always will be) were signed up and I thought, yes, this is what I need to get my novel finished. A primo kick in the ass deadline with tons of moral support.

So far, so good.

Like a recovering alcoholic, I am taking this 50,000 word challenge one day at a time.

And today was sooooooooooooooo suwheet ...


  1. Congratulations! That's a great word count for the day! I love the happy snoopy dance!

  2. Good for you - if I had written that much I would have done a happy dance and shook my thang too!

  3. Yay! That IS impressive. COngrats, and I hope I catch some of your energy -- after 2 days, just over 2k words. Keep on chugging! Peace...

  4. good for you....you are having quite the successful year what with the weight loss and now with the novel writing. One more round of the kitchen...you go girl.

  5. Thanks, Lauri and Kathy! Still dancing around the kitchen this morning! It's either the word count or the bran flakes I had for breakfast.
    Linda, that is fabulous! You keep chugging, too.
    And Delores, you are right, it has been a pretty sweet year for me. I think that turning 50 was a big wake-up call for me. I have invested a great deal of time and energy looking after all the facets of my life and it appears to be paying off. There are a million excuses for not doing something but no excuse for actually getting it done.
    You all are my inspiration, every day, my cheering corner – thanks so much!

  6. Am cheering from the sidelines - woohoo! Go girl!

  7. Woot! Can't wait for my author autographed copy.

  8. Thanks ladies! (STILL WOOTING .. only less so, because shortly am disappearing into bedroom to conjure up another gnarly amount of verbage) HUGS!


How's it going, eh? It's SO good to hear from you. Tell me every darn thing...
