Awright! Woot! Did it! Uh huh! Who da man, er, woman?

Woohoo! I did it! Typed the 50,098th word for the 50,000 word novel as part of “NaNoWriMo in June”* a little earlier and I’ve been celebrating ever since. I’ve been posting updates (not novel text, just progress reports and stuff) over at my other blog. When I’m ready (read, when I get the guts), I may post the story. Or stories. No promises. Not responsible for damage done to computer screens, eyeballs or brain cells allegedly caused by terrible bad horrible awful writing. Hey, you’ve made it this far and you’re still standing, er, sitting…aren’t you? Hey, you alright? You’re lookin’ a little pekid. (That is a weird looking word. Who comes up with these things?)

50,098 / 50K words = 100% done!

*NaNoWriMo is in November; this was actually WriDaNoJu but let’s not be petty. Also see the WriDaNoJu forum. Not nearly as big as NaNoWriMo but, hey, give ’em time. It’s pretty young, you know.

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

      It is exciting, JW! =) And the best thing is, I have much more material now than I did before I did the 30 day project. I also have many more questions. I even have more answers! Which only led to more questions. But I finally broke down and told one friend about the story, looking for answers to some of my questions and he was most helpful. After our talk I felt more inspired than I’ve felt in a long time. I even contacted an author to ask him a question, since he’s an expert in the field, and he sent a reply email! I was thrilled. Still am.

      So there’s hope that the 30 day rough, rough, really rough draft may be crafted into a real live novel after all. Sooner than the end of time, even! :)
