Kiss Me, I’m Irish











{November 14, 2008}   Some New Icons

I created some new icons for my NaNo.
Yes, time wasters, but hey! I reached my own goal, which surpassed the big one for today, and even flew past that one by over 200 words, so I’m allowed, 😛

{November 8, 2008}   Word Count For Yesterday

Oh my god, I so struggled yesterday to reach my goal. I didn’t think I would.
But!! I did!!
11,677 … reached it at 10pm, XD. I wrote about 1K of those in a half-hour.

Piece of advice for those who struggle to meet the word count: count backwards, use percentages.

For example: (today’s totals)
GOAL: 13334 / Completed: 11677 / Percent: 88% / Words to go: 1657

Maybe that’ll work for you. I know it does for me 🙂
I also do it through Plurk, so I can keep track and get that awesome possum encouragement 🙂
I’d do it here, but I don’t want to flood other’s friend’s lists 🙂



{November 6, 2008}   You Wish You Were Me

Okay, maybe not, but still, I’m in love with me.

Okay, as you might or might not know, yesterday I had a severe IBS attack. I say severe because I collapsed in the hallway in pain. I called Josh, trying to get him to come home, I was in so much pain. I cried I was in so much pain. Labor just made me scream at everyone. So, LOTS of pain. It was worse than labor.
So, I spent the day relaxing, and didn’t write a single word. I finished off Tuesday with 6800 words, and that total stayed the same for Wednesday.
Today, my goal was to reach at least the Wednesday goal of 8333. Josh and I came to an agreement of 9147 (halfway between 10K and 8333, Wednesday and Thursday goals). Well, I was quickly getting to 8333, just randomly writing throughout the day. I was struggling to get there though. So, when Josh made it home, I put myself in the bedroom with no distractions. I even closed Plurk (yeah, that committed). I begged for word wars (got no hits though :().
But, at 8pm, I hit the ultimate goal: 10038 words!!

So current totals:
Word count: 10069 (I’ve written more and still want to write more)

Chapter one: 3400
Chapter two: 1467
Chapter three: 1106
Chapter four: in progress

Go me, it’s my party, go me, I’m awesome!!
