NaNoWriMo Day 30 --With 2 Hrs. and 1 Min To Spare!!


Counting tool courtesy of Writertopia.


Can I get some Comment love, up in here?? Where my people at?
Come on Linn Creek, Mo & Edmonton, Alberta! How aboutcha Chapel Hill, NC and Grove City, PA!

I had frittered the whole day away having gone to work (there were actually end-of-the-month things I had to do, and a group home full of residents who I had to check on because their housemate died last week) and my mind kept trying to find ways to force another 3K out when the story was finished.

So when I got home today, I went to some of last year's chapters which didn't work at all last year, and plunked a chunk of one into the middle of a present chapter, then massaged it in, trimmed the fat, and found myself 38 words over 50K!

Yay me!

Yay! I have been following your progress and I have to admit that I am most impressed. Congratulations! Now, where can I go to read it?

Ah, there's the rub Geovanie. I'm going to be submitting this somehow somewhere, so I'm keeping it under wraps for probably about a year. That's how long it takes a few Houses to see it and give response.
Naturally, I'd like to make lots of crazy money off of it, so if I can't get the pros to buy it, I'll self-publish. But again, that's after a while.

How did you find out I've been lurking on your blog?

Congrats on 50k, I stalled after 10k. Two other Tech Support projects interfered.

-Archive, saying hi from Grove City.

The Frappr map at Tech Support. It was a bit too coincidental that you lived in the same town that shows up on my SiteMeter.

So when are we going to see those pics, of the Mid-Ohio Con? We're both friends of Matt Atherton, so isn't that alright then?
