Welcome to November! I really wonder where October went, because I don't remember much of it really. It was here one day, and then gone the next it seems. But, I can't focus too much on that--I've got too much to do this month. So for the mid-week update, here goes:
I've been able to keep up with writing 1 hour per day on my WIP. I did this through a combination of the notes and scenes I've been jotting down in my notebook (and all my attempts at sketches and maps!), and the writing I started yesterday. First day of NaNo word count--3029. Hopefully I can average about 2000-2500 daily throughout the challenge so I can have a day off on the weekend. Oh and bonus--my outline for the NaNo WIP, which was a ROW80 goal, is done! One less goal this round; Woot!
As for my other goals, it's a mix as far as where I stand at mid-week. I've blogged once a week per my goal, and also have been having a great time checking out other ROW80 and NaNo blogs and commenting. Y'all are some awesomely talented and interesting people. On the downside though and for completely unrelated reasons, I have only worked out twice this week. Between fighting a cold, work and homework, I just haven't had the energy to fit this in. Hopefully I can get back on track tomorrow and workout the next three days.
I've set out to read a new book as well, Kait Nolan's Red (Check out her blog here). I love it and it has been hard to put down. I stayed up later than usual to read a little more before I went to sleep last night, hence why I am a little bleary eyed at the moment, but nothing a little cinnamon tea can't fix! (And besides, reading the book is well worth the bleary eyes!)
Oh, and one more mini-goal has been crossed off my list--I now am on twitter! Look for KatMorrisey on there if you'd like. Though, be warned, I am pretty new at the twitter thing and am a little bit overwhelmed. And I also feel awkward intruding on other people's conversations, so yeah, expect me to be a little bit timid for awhile, or just providing random tweets about things I see or that happen, find amusing articles or funnies, recipes I like, or things like that. Be warned though--I sometimes have a dark, sarcastic and/or quite snarky sense of humor (check out Lord_Voldemort7 for an example of what makes me grin sometimes. I adore him for his snarkiness! His tweets almost always make me giggle...The Onion too is another fave of mine, among others) My friends say it is just quirkiness, and due to my love of satire. I don't know where it came from--all I know is that it is part of who I am. (Hence the warning, so people know where I am coming from if I re-tweet something from one of those sites or another)
Anyways, that's all from me. Hope everyone's week is going well and see you on twitter, at the Friday Fun Not Fear check-in and/or Sunday!!
