Checking Up

So how's NaNo going for everyone? I'm very behind, thousands of words behind, but its okay because I'm actually not ripping my hair out with stress and have managed to make it through my grading period rather unscathed, with the exception of one grade that will be dealt with tomorrow. So how is everyone else doing with NaNoWriMo, or in some cases NaNoRevisMo?

My English/Way to write NaNo in school, is going very well I am very pleased with it. And I came up with an awesome quote today while walking my dog, Seamus. If you've noticed from earlier posts all my animals with the exception of my eldest cat have Irish names. Seamus, is Seamus Cujo, Yes, yes my dog is named after Stephen Kings rabid St. Bernard. (My bestie decided on his middle name.) I was talking to my characters, yes out loud it helps me think, and Kali said something really awesome! It was "It's like God is playing some cruel joke on me, and I can't laugh." Now think what you may but I rather liked it, especially because she was/is no longer religious (long story). But anyways she and Darren have finally decided how to tell me how they resolved their conflicts enough so they could become friends, and I rather like the way it plays out.

So I'm going to go and write that now, while they are having a good time chatting in my ear.

NaNo is going well despite a sucky weekend where I only wrote 900 words but at least I'm over the 30k mark now.

I'm going to write now too, although it's insanely hot...anyway, happy writing.

NaNoRevisMo not going to well. Too much time playing with Ninjadillo, not enough time writing. And now he's sent in Il Primo. In fact...I should really get back to work. But thanks for the post!

We're revising not NaNo-ing. The good news is that I think our we'll be ready to send our new manuscript to our agent early next week. We're so excited (ok, fine, terrified) to see what she thinks!

Jade-I"m no where close to 30,000 I so wish I was but my NaNo is behind, and thats okay because I'm writing and thats what matters.
Shannon- Il Primo is scary! I saw a picture of him and he scared me so bad! I hope NaNoRevisMo turns out okay, and be careful Il Primo does not look like he can take things lightly...
L&L- Oh new MS, good luck! I'm sure it will work out, so exciting!
