  • It's actually ironic, because my main character has and is climbing a mountain.
  • I am on Chapter 3.
  • No, I do not have my story specifically outlined into chapters. I like to take life as it comes at me.
  • Also, presenting to you lovely readers the cover I created last week for my novel's page on the NaNo website--->
  • My goal is to get to 4,000 words by the end of tonight.
  • Except I'm also trying to write a 7-10 page paper over I Am Legend for my Romanticism class.
  • I ran into a plot hole today when I realized that I hadn't planned out how my character manages to climb a mountain with an unconscious female when his strength and size are quite limited.
  • So I had to leave him twiddling his thumbs on a hospital bed for awhile while I consulted the love of my life, who gave me step-by-step instructions on how to construct a makeshift rickshaw from hospital materials.
  • Every good writer needs an engineer in her life.
  • I've decided not to identify my character's name until Rae first meets him, which is turning out to be a struggle since it's written in third person.
  • But I'm going to like the effect.
  • I finally went to Walmart and stocked up on junk food! Yay!
  • TLOK is getting intense and I hate that Mako doesn't even know that Korra was attacked and went missing and now Asami is all over him and I love her but MAKORRA.
  • I keep writing about my character persevering in his quest to save Rae but I'm really saying it to myself
  • 50,000 words is so, so far away.

just wait a moment and it will appear)
