    I officially give up. I only have 2,012 words, and for some reason I can only concentrate on my non-Nano fiction, The Bond.

    Finally got to sit down and start writing last night, and got 2,976 words done. I just wish I'd been able to do that November 1st, not 5th.

    At that rate you should have plenty of time to finish.

    That's if I can keep that rate up, and I can almost gaurantee that I won't.

    Don't give up, just be a NaNo Rebel. Work on more than one thing at a time and just log 50K words in November, no matter what you are working on.

    NaNo is really what you make of it, to me, no matter what you are working on or how many things you are writing, if you log 50,000 words in 30 days, you are a winner!

    I totally agree. I am just writing scenes I would like to see in the EU and hope to clump them together into a story sometime in the future. I have no plot or outline.:p

    I'm at 8200, but that's behind where I wanted to be at this point. I keep hitting weird mental blocks.

    I've finally made a decent start on mine! I'm not going to go to bed until I'm caught up, so I don't think I'll be sleeping tonight.

    I made a good start, but I can't muster up any enthusiasm for the next section I'm trying to write. I've tried to write around it, but one of the pitfalls of just winging this is that I feel compelled to write in chronological order instead of jumping from scene to scene. There's a reason I stick with vignettes and very short fics. :p

    11,596.

    I think I've accepted the fact that this is Nano, and it's okay to write crap. I just need to write and not focus on making things sound pretty. I'll fix things on the second draft.

    I am really irritated today with some annoying people. Can anybody write when they are totally peeved? Maybe I should stop trying to write the love scene I was working on and allow my character to go darkside and kill somebody!

    ACK! Those irritating people contacted me again. My character is definitely going to kill someone. If they keep this up genocide may happen in my fic.

    Go for it. A good death is worth quite a few words.

    I made it to 21,000 today. When I saw the word count was 20,999 I added a word to make it 21,000.

    @LAJ_FETT awesome! :D

    I'm at 2.5k but I've hit a boring bit! My characters will just be walking for a bit and in a desert, so there's nothing to describe or anything to happen.

    I've hit a bit of a boring bit as well. My characters are drinking a lot of coffee and talking but not much else. (And I don't even like coffee that much..)
    Think I'll kill off a redshirt...

    I hit a boring part, so I threw in some PG rated sex scenes. I broke 20K words last night. I am tired of plot. I just might fill the other 30K words with bootknocking.

    Broke 10.5 K words. Did some very angsty scenes last night. Today I add in another main character, who should be a mix of Han Solo, Ron Weasley and Flynn Rider from Tangled. Should be interesting to say the least, especially when I start writing chapters from his point of view...

    I thought you said you have no plot? ;)

    You are right, there is no plot yet...I guess I mean...non-bootknocking scenes. I am getting close to a plot. I figure if I write enough random scenes I will find a way to hook them together.

    Just broke the 20 K with 20.997 words with killing my Catweazle Jedi. He has been in other adventures and was now very, very old.

    Stopping for the day at 4825. I'm getting tired so I'm off to bed. I was planning to stay up late, but nope, not going to happen. :(

    Word counts updated!


    Ugh... I'm having so much trouble this year. I'm not giving up, but I'm ridiculously distractable recently. :(
