#cy365: february, week one

20180201-IMG_7594

February 1 – balancing act – I woke up with a cold. I’m doing hourly comic day today. I took a break from daily photo projects because the balancing act was stressing me out, but I thought I might do #cy365 every other month, depending on how I handle it this month. ‚̧ԳŹ

NaNoWriMo 2017: Days 22 – 27

IMG_20171126_114350_812.jpgSo, uh, I wrote 6,197 words yesterday and two of them were “The End.”

finalBacking up a moment, I also wrote on the 22nd, 25 and 26th. I sometimes look at this spreadsheet and think: Golly, if I wrote like this straight through, I could finish in 21 days! But you gotta take days off, or I do, anyway.

I haven’t experienced a November without NaNoWriMo since I was 16 years old. I wonder what they’re like? I’m open to maybe… MAYBE taking next year off. I’ve never even been open to that before. November is a great month and sometimes I feel like it happens without me.

We’ll see how I feel next year!

NaNoWriMo 2017: Day 15

Halfway there! I struggled to get started and I only wrote 1041 words yesterday, but I did pass 25k so I’m still on track!

IMG_20171115_072501.jpgI haven’t done the laundry once this month. NaNoWriMo traditions! I really need to do it, though. :\

Alida placed hers on the vanity table.

NaNoWriMo 2017: Day 14

IMG_20171114_174152_774.jpg

Once again, I really didn’t want to write, but then I did and I got 2,399 words. They were super full of typos, though, the most red-squiggly-lined writing sessions of the month.

Here are my favorite typos of the day:¬†responisibilties,¬†wildnerness,¬†conincidence. They’re especially great if you say them aloud. The great thing about the coincidence typo is that I made it MULTIPLE TIMES.¬†

When Shaun got home we walked to our polling location and voted and got to come home at sunset, which was very satisfying.

The last sentence I wrote:

One of old Mr. Thwaite’s dear friends shot the creature.

NaNoWriMo 2017: Days 5 & 6

20171105-IMG_676120171105-IMG_676620171105-IMG_6774

I didn’t write on the fifth. I dismantled Halloween outside and took care of a few more household chores. We watched lots of TV and went for a lovely autumnal walk and it was a pretty relaxing day.

I wanted to write straight away on Monday, but I had lots of little photo chores to do. If I didn’t want to spend the time making my triplicate backups of video, I needed to do some quick editing and uploads.*¬†But you know, quick video editing is a time suck.¬† Then I had photos to edit and Patreon posts to make and it took a couple of hours so I didn’t get started writing until almost 10am.

I did some sprints on twitter with @nanowordsprints and got 2929 words written. Before noon! I actually thought I might write more but I moved on to bullet journal upkeep and logged the words in pen so *shrug*.

Here’s the last sentence I wrote, it’s a rough one:

He looked over at Philomena with a sparkle of boyish laughter in his brown eyes.

NaNoWriMo 2017: Day 4

IMG_20171104_110315.jpg

I spent a lot of the day moving between browser tabs and doing things that one could say had something to do with my novel. I got my list of names-to-grab-when-my-mind-blanks put together. I read forum posts. I procrastinated spectacularly.

It was double-up donation day on the NaNoWriMo site. I donated. I also thought: You know what? I have never had such a low word count on double-up day, I could actually double my word count today! I continued to procrastinate.

Every time I went into the kitchen, I screamed a little because it’s such a mess. But I didn’t do anything about that, either.

Eventually I got my stuff together, and, back in the recliner with my laptop, I participated in 5 sprints on twitter (three 15, a 10 and a 20 minute) and did it. Like, I more than doubled my total word count. Stuff in my story actually started to get kind of fun. I creeped myself out a little with something I wrote. I may, in fact, have given myself some nightmares. I got 2,955 words for the day. I’m still behind, but it was major progress and a huge relief to enjoy myself while writing. I had such a weird, rough start. I know it will get tough again during week two, but I’m used to it. It’s all gonna work out.

The last sentence I wrote:

Understandably, Philomena screamed.
