Er, HAHAHA.

It's probably wrong that I'm just happy I broke halfway through my [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout pledge, right?

Word meters ahoy! )

The bad:

1. There's no way in hell I'm going to get my GYWO pledge for this year, but then again I already knew that.
2. I didn't win NaNo even if you just add up everything I wrote last month.
3. I probably won't be writing a lot of new stuff this month anyway, since I'll be editing.

The good:

1. I finished Heroine Addiction, didn't I? \o/
2. That means that I have two first drafts to edit, but I want to have them done before I start writing whatever I'm writing next.
3. ... because I'm pledging again with GYWO for next year. Er, heh. :D

That said, I'm definitely not trying for the Difficult level. I'm probably going to pledge for 200k this time around. I think my problem all boils down to the fact that when I'm working, all I want to do is go home and write, and when I'm not working I get horrendous writer's block. I spent two-thirds of this year unemployed. You do the math.

The plus side of having a full-time job again is that I'm being reminded of sitting at work bouncing in my seat wanting to race home and write. There's also the added advantage that being at work -- where I can't access the internet or be distracted by emails and don't have an MP3 player to listen -- means I've been writing stuff out in notebooks or, as I've been doing the past few days, taking a red pen to a first draft. It's the perfect environment for it.

I have an hour or so before I'm going to bed -- I want to hit the grocery store before work, which means getting up a bit earlier than I'm used to -- so the plan after I'm done writing this up is to see how much of the Heroine Addiction edits I can get in the file before bedtime. Time to pop on an Air Crash Investigation episode and buckle down, I guess. :)

This Way To The Egress:

1482 / 50000


This one. I'm doing this one for NaNo. 'Cause it's working and I know what I'm writing. It's my life story, except on CRACK. I'm not even joking. It makes my NaNo icon more than a little hilarious.

I could easily keep going tonight because the writing flows really well, but at the same time I'm reaching that point where if I keep staring at the computer screen, my eyeballs will threaten to explode.

Untitled gay romance:

734 / 100000


I may completely rewrite what I already wrote for it because I feel like the first sentence is a high point and then it just kinda tumbles downhill on me. Plus, I want to get a bit more of an idea where I'm going with it. However, I'm definitely hoping to finish the damn thing because in a "if everybody else jumped off a bridge" moment, if so many other people on my friends list can get or attempt to get original m/m romance published, then damn it, so can I. :D

EDIT: Oh, and by the by, I blame those 1482 words on Write Or Die. I am going to get sooooo much use out of that this month. *rubs hands together with glee*

Heroine Addiction:

90270 / 100000


Chapters done:



Only seven more to go, woohoo!

NaNoWriMo total:

410 / 50000


I'd work on it more tonight, but I have such a pounding headache I'm only going to drive myself nuts, so it's off to bed with me.

I think the big silly slutty gay romance is going to end up being my NaNo novel. In which case, here's the first sentence:

Logan's hip-deep in gay pornographic novels when the pixie walks into the bookstore.

Three things:

1. The pixie is male.
2. And looks like Adam Lambert.
3. Therefore, I blame [livejournal.com profile] ficangel. :D

(Logan looks like Bradley James with glasses. I wasn't even drinking! Honest!)
