I am officially a novelist.... sort of

Sorry I've not updated for a few days, but worked all weekend, and have also been very busy:

Now to actually finish the thing! And keep writing full out in order to help NYC in the tricity challenge.

But first perhaps some dessert...

NaNoWriMo Progress

Am sooooooooooooooooo close to the halfway point I can touch it! *bounces*

My minor character serving girl has become a diva and wants a bigger part, my hermit monk is threatening to start the Protestant Reformation three hundred years early (and also might possibly be emergent), and tomorrow I really really need to write a fight scene and figure out where swords and bows and arrows go, but otherwise things are going swimmingly :)

Seattle Sat

I realized I had posted all of my Seattle pics on LJ and none here, so I thought I'd remedy that. No real pics from Off The Map, except for Richard Twiss and his drum, because, dude, drum! Most of the pictures are of rocks trees and water, and Starbucks. Oh and a few random pics of my hotel room.

make with the clicky for the piccies

After the conference finished, came back to my room, swam, wrote, and then went back to Eastside Foursquare for their Sat pm service, which was quite nice. Got Chinese on the way home, and couldn't even eat half of it. Geez. Trying to figure out how I can take it to eat in car tomorrow.

Tomorrows plans are to drive out to see a waterfall that I can't spell, and then head back into Seattle, explore a bit more, maybe go to Mars Hill, which might be a good balance to the rest of the weekend, and then get the rental car back by 9.

I know, I know, I'm supposed to be writing. I'm going, I'm going...

NaNoWriMo, and Off the Map

NaNoWriMo started with a bang for me here in Seattle. Since I am registered in NY, I started at midnite EST on Wed, meaning 9PM PST. Which was a good thing, as I didn't actually make it to midnite. I got a good chunk done before the conference started, also a good thing.

today's word count: 506
Total: 2624

I knew today would be a bust writing wise, b/c had so much other stuff going on with conference activities, workshops, dinner, and tonite's "Conversation in a pub", so no worries. At least I got something done.

For what I've been up to all day, as well as last nite and ending tomorrow at noon at Off the Map, others have been blogging like crazy including live blogging at the events. Chuck was intimidated by all the really skinny MacBooks around and elected to stay in his case. So if anyone is interested, I direct you here where a list of blogs has been compiled.

I will content myself with reading them, along with the two books (so far) I've purchased.
