The Gears are in Full Swing (10,000 words and counting)

Yesterday was the 10,000 word mark. Did you pass with words to spare? Did you barely skid through? Or are you pushing that one more sprint to catch up? Whichever one you are, it is a great feat in itself to still be in the race. Congratulations!

For those of us pushing through here is another pep talk by the author of Divergent, Veronica Roth. Get inspired, get hyped, get writing.

And for those ahead of the race there isn’t time to slow down, keep at it. This Saturday is the Double Up nightmare. Yes, that is right. This Saturday is a mini challenge in itself where you push yourself to write twice as much. Instead of the daily 1667 shoot for 3334 words. Are you ready?

Plus, to top it off there is another mini event taking place today, Virtual Write In. Video will go live at 1pm PST. Don’t worry if you can’t take part right off the bat. You can always access the video later on and give it a go.

This post seems to have a little bit of everything. Talk about multitasking and turning up the heat, but that’s ok because November is a month to challenge yourself beyond your limits, to discover the greatness ready to come out, and to share that story you’ve been waiting all year to tell.

So, hit up those places that give you that extra push you need, bust out those tools that make keeping track of your writing easier, watch videos that inspire, and don’t forget to read. Just because NaNoWriMo is an event on writing, all writers should read almost as much as they write. The best tool you have are the books you love to read.

Here is what I am reading right now:

And here is my word count for the past few days:

November 4th: 1395

November 5th: 1286

Yesterday: 1736

Today: 462

Total: 10782

For those following my promo launch for A Prince From Another World, it has been altered to allow me time to write and keep my health from diminishing further. I wasn’t feel very well the past few days, thus the reason for the lack of posts and lower word counts. Plus my sanity could use some break as well. Instead of a five day promo launch I have decided to make a six day launch where every Sunday and Monday I post a promo blog. The promo launch will be extended to the 17th. So expect two promo posts on the 9th and 10th followed by the last two on the 16th and 17th.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to share your word count progress and any neat blogs or books you read during this long month of November.
