NaNoWriMo Update

November 30, 2009

I had a pretty productive day today. I gave myself permission to skip my evening walk if I needed to, and that helped free my mind up to focus on the writing (and I’m done early enough that I can still go on my walk). If I can do 1300 words tomorrow, I’ll hit the 50k in 30 days NaNoWriMo goal.

NaNoWriMo Update

November 29, 2009

I wanted to get a bit more done today, but I’m still mired down in lots of action scenes and it’s rough going. 50k by the 30th is still doable, but I’ll need to ramp up the productivity considerably.

NaNoWriMo Update

November 28, 2009

Wednesday I didn’t get anything done on the novel because I got completely distracted working on a playtest report for my RPG design project. Thursday was Thanksgiving. Today I actually got some writing done, although it was a slog. I’m not as far along as I wanted to be this month, and I’m even a little bit behind the standard NaNoWriMo daily goals, but I’m still within striking distance of 50,000 words by the 30th.

I posted another Spirit of the Century Actual Play report on RPG Geek.

I also posted a Final Hour of a Storied Age playtest report on my RPG blog.


NaNoWriMo Update

November 25, 2009

I have too many pending activities hanging over my head right now, which always causes my productivity to plummet. I should be a bit smarter about finishing projects before I get invested in new ones. I’m pretty sure I’ll still be able to finish the 50k goal for NaNoWriMo this month, but I definitely need a break from writing soon to get things back under control.

NaNoWriMo Update

November 23, 2009

Today was a more productive day than I’ve had in a while. I closed my e-mail notifier and shut down my web browser to eliminate distractions. I wasn’t 100% focused, but it was better than the past few days. I’m realizing that I plotted way too much action in this book and not nearly enough dialog. Hopefully it will all work out in the end, but for me writing action and description are a chore and writing dialog is a lot more fun.
