Nanowrimo - Half Way In

Yesterday morning, I made it to the halfway point in my November book. I surpassed 25,000 words. Of course, this doesn't mean the book is halfway done because I always try to keep writing clear to the final word, which almost always is well beyond the 50,000 word goal. But, still, I feel encouraged that it is going so well.

I'm going to try to have another 4000 word day today because I know I will be gone for much of the morning and afternoon tomorrow. I'll be playing my horn with a small ensemble to kick off The Salvation Army's kettle campaign in Indianapolis. It is supposed to be cold, so I hope my horn valves don't freeze up. I have purchased hand and foot warmers because I remember how cold my feet were last year.

I'm finding my morning walks around the high school track to be especially productive. I have resumed that practice and left off walking on the treadmill while listening to books. Thus, due to the writing and track-walking, I haven't been getting in as much reading. Still, I'm close to finishing one book and halfway through another.

I confess: I made it to 4000 words. Half a short story. Hanging my head in shame. But I am sooooo proud of you!!!

Any progress is better than no progress at all. Keep going. Finish the story. I'd love to read it (of course, I love to read whatever you write). I remember the first year I did Nano and another blogger did it, too, and she was always like 2-5K ahead of me. It infuriated me and kept me going out of pure spite - ha!

You made my comment log look like I have more interaction (Yippee).
