NaNoWriMo gets more fun all the time!

This is the most fun I have had writing in a long, long time. And it is my second most productive writing project ever, weighing in at just under 10,000 words (or 43 pages manuscript-style). All that is in black and white in the picture above, a screenshot of the newest feature of the NaNoWriMo web site to keep authors distracted from what they are supposed to be doing...

I'm feeling good about this NaNoWriMo stuff even though I am a bit behind. It is everything they say it is: fun, crazy, difficult, tiring, and rewarding. Now, if I can just crank out some overtime text, I might just cross the finish line.

Here's to a very lame first draft of The Breaking of Carcerei!

I'm way behind too. I got sick, spent a day in Portland, and started my new job. It's been sucky trying to find time to write.
