Yesterday I wrote about my personal experience competing in NaNoWriMo, Today I thought I would take a look at the different technology I used to try to reach 50,000 words.
The month is over, my mad dash to 50,000 words came up short. Very short. I didn’t even manage to write 15,000 words this year, and that’s including my background
Tonight I continued my November routine of heading to Starbucks with Jacob to do some writing. I haven’t managed to find my novel writing groove, but it’s been fun trying.
Today was the Lakeshore Santa Clause Parade. I didn’t think we’d actually see it today, but the kids really wanted to so when went an walked along the parade route. Parades are much faster when you walk towards the beginning. Today’s Picture of the day is of the kids getting candy cans from a parade elf.
Tonight I came home to find that Jacob had eaten at his Nan’s house but Violet had slept through dinner. So after pondering what to make for the two of us, I fired up the barbecue and through on some Hotdogs for her and a couple burgers for me. My goal this winter is to barbeque at least once a month, part of me would like to try for once a week.
Yesterday I wrote about my personal experience competing in NaNoWriMo, Today I thought I would take a look at the different technology I used to try to reach 50,000 words. My first year I had a personal notebook that I wrote on quite successfully. In the years since my laptop died and I haven’t replaced really replaced it. So instead I’ve tried a few different technologies for writing my novel. One year I had hopped to write on my Motorola Milestone, I thought with its slide out keyboard it would be perfect. It wasn’t. So this year I was thrilled when through some opportunities at home and work I started November we access to a Laptop and a Tablet to write my novel. So I thought I’d break this post into two parts, first I will compare the Hardware and then I will compare the different software I used.
I have had a goatee as long as I can remember. This month I decided to try to grow a full beard. It’s not the first time I’ve tried. Though it was the first time that I kinda like the results. Of course Melissa isn’t a fan, so I’m left wondering if I should shave it off. And if I do shave should I take it all or go back to just the goatee.
The month is over, my mad dash to 50,000 words came up short. Very short. I didn’t even manage to write 15,000 words this year, and that’s including my background and world building work in my word count. Still as I sit here and look back at the month I feel like it’s been a success. I found a new world I want to explore with stories. My son wrote over 1000 words of his own novel and seemed to really enjoy the process. So I thought that I would take some time on this the first of December and write about my experiences during NaNoWriMo
