The novel is officially underway. I’m loving the writing process. I came up with the idea for the novel a few weeks ago and started writing a chapter or so but for NaNoWriMo, I am writing all new stuff. So I might incorporate the previous chapter after i’ve written my requisite 50,000 words or it might go towards another book. I tell you, when I start working on a goal, I like to get in and get things done.
Yesterday morning when I woke up, I had only penned 35 words. You remember?
Well I took advantage of the extra time yesterday and I got up early enough to write today and I’m happy to have completed more than 5,000 words which means I am back on track to finish by November 30. I’m really excited. This is a book that I’ve been meaning to write for a long time and I hope it’s as great to read as it is to write.
So the NYC marathon happened yesterday. I laughed, I cried, I celebrated with all the runners who finished, I coveted the medals and the stories and and wished I had been running too. But there’s always next year for that.
So today’s let’s just celebrate all the people who ran and made their own running dreams coming true.
Here are some wonderful accomplishment stories from the weekend:
My goals this week:
- Write everyday
- Get to 15,000 words
- Workout everyday
- Healthy eating
- Organize the recruiting event for the next year for my youth group
- Finish 2 handmade gifts
- Reach out to 3 friends who I haven’t spoken to in a long time.
What awesomeness do you have planned this week?
