So I let it go for a while... But writers, please. Show 'em.

I've dropped the topic for a while, hoping everyone would find some self-motivation.

But Nano-ers... Where are your word counts?

Personally, I'm behind, but I believe I'm going to take a 'marathon' day. I've determined that no matter what, this year I will win. I've been feeding hubby hot pockets, and I'm not proud of it... But I am going to FINISH this book. Probably not in 50k either, but I will finish 50k this November.

All of you out there I swore I'd hold accountable though... I know you're not giving in, 'cause it's never too late. 'Fess up your excuses (or your massive word counts!) and let's do for one another as we promised. ​

I am at a shameless (though 'behind') 11786 words.

    I have not started (hanging head in shame). I guess I am not the writer I used to be.

      Oh I love that! I tried to write by hand for Nano once, but I quickly stopped. I am just soooo much slower that way. And... I haven't quite kept it up. Life got WAYYYYYYYYY busy. But hoping to still get further in the book and if nothing else, at least I came out of it with a good story idea and some fleshing out of characters. (And cool software!- love the free Scrivener trial. Will NEVER go back)
