To Nano or Not to Nano, That is NOT the Question

Seriously, I don't have a choice. I want Detour 2 Death to debut at Love is Murder and that means I have to have a complete draft by the end of November. So, not only am I going to be getting those 50k words one way or another, I'm gonna go over by around 30K or so. This just has to happen.

At least that's what I keep telling myself. I can do this. I've got two 10K days scheduled with Milli Thornton, so that's 20K (or more) right there. In the meantime, I'm gonna keep plugging away.

On another note, I'm excited to see tonight's episode of Supernatural. I want to watch the brothers get Sam's soul back and give Crowley what he's got coming to him. I'll be honest, I was scared season 6 would be like "jumping the shark" but I'm truly thrilled with the direction the Eric Kripke took with this. Since the series was only planned for 5 seasons, they've done an impressive job of keeping the legend going. For that, you have my heartfelt thanks! Besides, Jensen Ackles is hot! :)

Best wishes for your NaNo draft, Jenny! :)

You're make your deadline - I just know it.

I'm doing NaNo also. Splitting a 10K day between this afternoon and tomorrow morning.

Back to writing!

Great! That conference looks like it will a lot of fun to attend. That's a cool goal you have - a very achievable goal, but one that requires discipline, which I know you have. So, I have faith in you!

I missed last night's episode of Supernatural. I don't know why I thought Sam got his soul back when they went to Scotland (last week?). I don't think they've jumped the shark either, but then I haven't been watching all seasons. And for what it's worth, I think both guys are hot, but I think their Dad was even hotter! :)

LOL Christy! All the Winchester men were hot!! :)

I remember the episode when they went to Scotland, but they didn't know yet that Sam didn't have a soul. They found out when Castiel checked for it. They got Bobby's soul back, I believe. That's probably why you remembered it that way.

Anyhoo, always so happy to have you here!! :)

I have to confess that I completely flopped at NaNoWriMo last year, but this year it's really cranking along, so that'll be four wins out of five attempts if I can keep it up. :)

Heck, my story might even be worth publishing after I make a few adjustments with the Editorial Chainsaw of Doom.

Thanks for being my buddy over there, Jenny! I think you're the only active participant on my list this year! It's really cool to have a little peer pressure to keep things rolling! Best of luck to you!

LOL, Sue! I love that phrase: the Editorial Chainsaw of Doom.


June (who hopes the authors she works with doesn't think of her as the Editor of Doom...)
