Today? Editing!


What is worse than looking at a blank page?

Editing!

I spent today editing my CampNaNo story, Haven in 3D. I don’t do it like the picture, though I think I might near the end. My process is: Open yWriter project. Open Word with the RTF of that project. Then I open Grammarly Pro. Though I don’t think I am down to the words but the actual overall story, why not fix what I can as I read?

After I have cleaned up a scene in Word, I copy and paste it back into the yWriter scene and move on to the next scene. I think I added 26 words. That was a surprise because at first, I was killing words left and right.  I spent from around noon to just an hour ago. I covered one chapter and two scenes from the next chapter. I needed to do this one to have all the information I needed for the one I just finished. It is fun to get back to the spring novel. It has all my favorite Haven characters. I can’t wait to get the series up for everyone to enjoy. It could just be me. I hope not. But if so I have had a fun time living part-time in another universe!

NaNo Update: Whew!!!!!

YAY!

There is no validator this year but I added a buffer just in case yWriter is less than a validator would have. Look at this if you want to see the life of a NaNoer:

I love the applause at the end! Writing is lonely work. Thanks for your encouragement along the way. It really helped!

NaNo Eve Update


Whew! I managed to get just the right amount for the day. Like being beaten to death by the characters in my head! 48,379 The light is at the end of the tunnel! I hope it isn’t a train!

NaNo Update-Two Left!


I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! We had pizza. A high of 24 made it less appealing. But the snow, though ice, now, is still pretty.

 

46,703 I wanted more but I think the pizza and cheese were fighting the words.

Third to Last NaNo Update


Aren’t you excited? Maybe soon I will be doing real blogs again. And Knitting. …And editing…

That was my one-liner. The only blogging I’ve done this month. Thank you, Linda, for an easy one!

NaNo Update


I’ve had a pretty good run the last couple of days. Impending snowstorms for reals are happening on the planet Crim. I love it when the writing happens without my brain hurting! By the way, I wrote early as they are expecting such strong winds and blizzard conditions by 1:30. Oops! It is in two minutes. The snow is getting denser and the winds are picking up. I hope we don’t lose power. But at least in writing, I’m ready! 43,429 Take that!

NaNo Update


What a great writing day. The impending snowstorm here seemed to want to happen on Crim the planet where this story takes place. The story seemed to write itself. It was fun and written within a couple hours rather than a day sitting in front of the word processor getting only a few words per hour. I gained a grand total of:

41,831!

NaNo Update


40043 Not 400043. I couldn’t figure out why the NaNoWriMo site was congratulating me on winning. Oops! Extra zero. I fixed it and it was rather sad to see the winner ship sail away. Ah, well, I’ll see it in six (YIKES!) days. I hope your wordage is going great!

NaNo Update Whew! Caught Up!

I only had to threaten my characters with global death if they didn’t get busy and produce a story! It worked and I think we saved everyone. One is missing, but I think she’ll be okay. If not, well, “Kill the darlings,” you know?

NaNo Update :-(


I just didn’t get the words I wanted today. So now I’m a little behind. Hopefully, I can catch up tomorrow.
