Day 26 of NaNoWriMo, and I am a winner

Hello everybody,
This is ann again with an update and some exciting news about NaNoWriMo. I finally reached, and actually wrote above the 50k word goal for NaNoWriMo. My WIP so far is 50247, and I’m not through with my novel yet. I am really excited, and I printed out my certificate tonight. Now I just need to try to figure out what prizes I could possibly win.
Before I end my post, I want to wish all of you in the united states a Happy and blessed Thanksgiving. I am going to try to upload my NaNoWriMo certificate for my readers to see.
Happy writing, and blessings to everyone,
Ann

Day 25 is a slow NaNoWriMo day for me

Hey everybody,
Today is day 25 of NaNoWriMo, which means (drum roll please), those of us who are doing the nano are getting through the last leg of the NaNo journey, as it were. I say yay! because I’ve almost made it to the NaNoWriMo winners circle. But today was a slow day for me. I wrote almost 5000 words yesterday, and I only wrote 1402 words today. My WIP is 47310. Though today was slow for me, I still think I can make it above and beyond the 50k target. Got to get that last good word sprint in there, and I’ll make it.. Keep praying for me, and keep cheering me on.
Happy writing and blessings,
Ann

NaNoWriMo day 21

Well folks, today has been a long day, but a very productive one at that. My WIP is now 37580, which is 4062 words more than I told you I have written in my last update. I am pretty sure I’ll get to 40K by tomorrow or Sunday. I will keep you posted with another update tomorrow, but for now I’m pretty tuckered out.
Happy writing, and God bless,
Ann

The day 20 NaNo update

Hello all you bloggers out there, and hello to all my beloved readers.
I am blessed this morning, because by the end of the day yesterday MY Word count in progress, WIP was 33518. I would have posted this last night, but by the time I saved the file and updated the NaNo site, I was all tuckered out.
I want to thank the good Lord for blessing me with a story to tell, just in time for the Christmas season. I know the novel won’t be ready to publish by the end of the month, but I am plugging away at the story all the same. With a little bit of sci fi,a little bit of mystery, a little bit of adventure, a little bit of Childrens ferry tale, and a whole lot of love between my characters, this story will be sutable for people of all ages. My working title for this story is The Apple Wheel, though I may expand that title before it’s all over with, I’m not sure just yet.
Ok Well, I need to stop rambling and get to work, so happy writing, and Have a blessed day.
Ann

NaNoWriMo day 19

Hey folks,
It’s day 19 of NaNoWriMo and my word count so far is 30452. I am over half way there and still pluggin’ along, yay! Well, Looking at the NaNo site, my word count average shows that I should be finished by December 2nd, but I have been averaging more words in a day than the 1667 words that the site averages for me. I believe I will be finished in plenty of time to validate my word count, even though I am not finished with the story. How many people predict that I will hit the 50K word target before Thanksgiving? Let me know.
Happy Writing, and blessings to each of you,
Ann

Day 18 of NaNoWriMo

Hello bloggers,
Today is the 18th day of November, and it is the 18th day of NaNoWrimo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month for those of you who aren’t familiar with this particular project, or writing in general. My word in progress (WIP) is 23636, I honestly feel that going on vacation, and having my daughter for this past weekend has put me behind the eight ball so to speak. However, that hasn’t stopped me from writing my story. I like where it’s going, and I let my characters do the talking. So let’s rise and grind and write like mad men and women to win this contest.
Happy writing to you NaNoers out there, and blessings to all my dear readers.

A NaNo update

Hey everyone, I’m here to give you another NaNoWriMo update. I know it’s what? day 13, and I’ve been on vacation for a week, but I’m back in the saddle again as it word, (pun intended), with a WIP of 16554. I will take tomorrow and do some catching up on my NaNo novel, since I’ve missed a week of writing, but I still believe that I will make it. Well ok, for now, I’m going to call it a night. It’s been a long day of playing catch up and unpacking, so until tomorrow folks, happy writing.

NaNoWriMo day three

Hello bloggers,
I know I didn’t post a NaNoWriMo update yesterday, but after writing over seven thousand words in two days, I’m pretty tired.
Well, filling in the gaps in my story brought up my word totals today, instead of pushing my way to the end. I’ll do that either tomorrow, or the next time I have a chance to write, as I am leaving Wednesday for a much needed vacation. However, I’m not worried about not reaching the 50k minimum to win, like another writer friend of mine told me, I got this. Having a two day head start on my story really gave me a big jump on the NaNoWriMo challenge itself. My WIP is 13136 as of today. With everything else I have to do tomorrow to get ready for my trip, I hope to at least reach 15k before I pack up the laptop.
Well, good night fellow bloggers and to all my readers, I’m going to sack out for a while so I can get up and do it all over again tomorrow.
Happy writing, and love and prayers to you all,
Ann
