NaNoWriMo Update

A month back, I mentioned that I was participating in NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month – this year. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month.

I got less than halfway – 22,089 words. Now I have reasons: I got a late start, my insomnia went insane, our rat Margaret developed a tumor and had to have surgery (she’s doing well). And so on.

I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t do better, but regardless I am happy that I have a good set of characters and an interesting plot (I think) and I intend to continue writing this story. (Among other things, I bet Eric that I could write a book by the end of the year.)
