NaNo Update and Award

I'm not doing too shabby so far. I've got 8,548 words as of end of writing on Thursday night. I can live with that. Especially if I can keep it up.

It's interesting as I'm writing because I'll get hung up on how to do something and then I have a duh moment. You see, this is NaNo. I don't have to get hung up on things like I normally would. I can just leave myself a comment and move on.

Author Marsha Ward was kind enough to give me the One Lovely Blog Award. Because of NaNo I'm going to cheat. For some reason everyone is supposed to forward it on to 15 (yes, that's right, FIFTEEN) other blogs. I don't have time. But since many blog awards are satisfied with 7, and this particular award asks for 7 things about me I'm going to stick with 7. Hey, it's good enough for Voldie Baby, it'll have to work for me.

So if you want to be bored stupid you can check a previous post here for some random person tidbits.

Please check out Marsha's blog and say Howdy (she writes Westerns).

And check out these following awesome peeps:

Donna Hosie at Musings of a Penniless Writer
Kristin Baker Przybyla at Fairies and Pirates, etc.

  1. Sounds like you're on top of things. Only XXXXX words to go!

    Moody Writing
    The Funnily Enough

  2. I'm with mooderino.

    Funny, but that's EXACTLY how many words I have done so far!

    Quite a coincidence.

  3. That is a pretty amazing coincidence. That's what happens you you schedule a post, do some sprint writing, and then are so tired you just go to bed.

    Fixed now. lol

  4. Thank you so much!! Keep it up in NaNo! Love the Obi-Wan pic :)

  5. Great job writing Donna! and you totally rock for passing awards along. I would be lame and use NaNo as an excuse not to do anything but write.

    Keep up the good work!

  6. Hey Donna: You might have left me a message at NaNo and then maybe not. I checked and it said there was one,when I went back it was gone. Could be me, could be them. My Caribbean Connection is running really slow today. It's rainy and cold 76, here. I know I'll get no sympathy, but I'm freezing.

    Looks like your really kickin' it. Great work and very encouraging to me.

  7. WOW! you are doing GREAT for NaNo! That is an impressive start! And congrats on the award! You deserve it! I will now go check out your personal "tidbits."

  8. Totally awesome NaNo freak. That is a way cool amount of words. :) And congrats on the award. Facts about you are not boring. Have a great weekend, Donna!

  9. Congratulations! And it's nice to just plow forward whether it's correct or not.

  10. Thanks for mentioning me and my blog.
    Congratulations to you for winning the Award!

  11. Thank you so much for the award!! Sounds like you are doing awesome with Nano! Good luck!

  12. Luv the pic:) And wow, you've written that much! Well done (pat on the back).

  13. I always wondered that about Obi-wan. I just always assumed he was having an off day. We are with in 20 words, but yours is more impressive because you have a day job. Keep it up :)

  14. Congratulations on your award, and best of luck with NaNoWriMo! :)

  15. Awesome job so far, Donna.

    That's a smart idea about the comment. I should try that even if I'm not participating in NaNo. It would save me from getting distracted while doing "research". :D

  16. That's awesome NaNo progress!

    Congratulations on the award! :)

  17. Wow, 8,000+ words is impressive. Keep it up. You are my hero!

  18. That's a very respectable word count, Donna. I know it's still early days, but you are way ahead of the game.

  19. Wow Donna. You've got a lot of writing done. More than 10% to the goal. Keep going strong.

    Congrats on the award and thank you for passing it along to me. The award itself is actually quite lovely.

  20. I know these awesome peeps. Well, most of them. Thanks for the links. I always like meeting new people.

  21. Thank you, my dear! I've been called a lot of things this week, but "lovely" wasn't one of them!

    YAY for the NaNo word count.

  22. Awesome job Donna! Keep it up and you'll have yourself ole book by the end of the month:)

  23. Great progress, Donna. And congrats on the award.

  24. Thanks, Donna! This is one I haven't received yet. :)
