Into the Final Three Days

November 28th, 2009 (03:41 pm)

I've spend most of the day sitting here in the Ballston Commons food court with two other writers, typing away at our NaNoWriMo novels. One of the other two writers here had already hit the final goal of 50,000 words before arriving today. The other reached 50,000 words during today's write-in.

And then there was me, finishing Chapter 6 and beginning Chapter 7 of my Stargate SG1 book. Today, I was glad to reach and then to surpass the big 20,000-word mark. Pitiful, I know, compared to almost everyone else I know who's doing this.

But I did manage to place the planet Earth in mortal peril, and that's something.

Also, I saw Santa Claus and the Chick-fil-A cow.

Total word count now stands at 21,081.

NaNoWriMo

Yay, you!

I see you passing 25K before the month expires.

Heck, you should be able to get 2K just talking about the Chick-fil-A cow!

Not sure if there's a place in a Stargate book for the Chick-fil-A cow, but you never know. Maybe it could be possessed by a Goa'uld. Now there's a scary plot twist.

Keep going. It's been awhile since you've cranked out large-word-count fiction. Pretty soon it will as easy as riding a bike!
