Still writing, though I had a day off due to illness. Forgot to post in here about the novel. I finished writing the first draft that I last posted about on here. It has 90,230 words, which is good for the genre and my longest novel to date.

I'm taking a break from that novel, I promise. But I'm working on other novels. I've written a chapter already in my YA novel rewrite. Started a chapter in my urban fantasy/paranormal romance that involves an angel and a demon. Also have 15 pages so far for script frenzy.

Lots of writing still.

Finished chapter 33 a couple of hours ago. It ended up being over 2500 words, which was great. The novel now has a little over 86,000 words and I only have two chapters left to write. Chapter 34 is the rest of the climax and chapter 35 is the end.

Can't believe I'm almost done with the rough draft.

Finished writing chapter 32. The novel has over 83,000 words so far. I think there are only three chapters left. 2 for the climax and 1 for tying all the lose ends up. That's the current plan.

Now to get back to writing chapter 33. They are going to break out and fight back against the antagonist. Fun times!

Good luck!

I've made it to my initial word count goal for my novel of 80,000 words. Still have a few chapters left to write, 3-4, and then I'll be done with the first draft. Looking forward to it.

I'm finishing off my journal article this week and it should be finished before Easter! Wish me luck. I'm sending it off for an award (no high hopes there, but still it made me work). But for that it needs to be finished by April 15 and I still need to have it proofread...

Last night I finished chapter 30 in the novel. Have written over 59,000 words this month alone and am very pleased with that. Soon I'll have 60k. The novel has over 77,000 and I'm very pleased with that. I planned to have 80k and still have at least 4 chapters to write.

This has been a great writing month.

Haven't done much writing as of late. Still working on chapter 29 but should have it finished tonight, or that is the plan. Hard to believe I have a novel that has almost 30 chapters and almost 75,000 words.

Thanks. I didn't write yesterday as I needed the break. Today I've written around 600 words on chapter 27. I know the end is nearing and it's strange but exciting.

I am almost done with chapter 22. Helped that I had this section written for a short story and just have to edit/rewrite while adding more to it.

Have done about 8,000 words today alone because of that. Novel is over 55k and I've written about 38k this month.

My goals for March seem basic, but I've been recently struggling with sticking to a regular writing time or fitting in writing at all. Since I don't function well when I'm not writing, this has been a problem. So, my goal is to write 6000 words by the end of the month. Also, I'm going to organize my ideas and other writings, so I have a clearer direction of where I'm heading.

Another slow but good day overall. Managed to write a little over 2500 words for the day. That makes my total for the month over 27,000 words on the Hero novel. Not bad for 10 days.

I have found a writing challenge using keywords with a time limit and on subjects that must be researched. It is getting my brain out of the rust bucket and one of these days, a romance novel :)

Yesterday I ended up writing 3200 words. Finished chapter 12 and wrote all of chapter 13.

Today I am writing chapter 14. I already have over 1500 words written today and that means I've made my goals for the week. I've written over 15,000 words this week and the novel now has over 40,000 words.

This month is a great writing month for me.

Finished chapter 11 yesterday and started chapter 12. Today will be a smaller word count day due to homework and going to meet my wdc writing twin. Yay

I did write 3400 words yesterday. So, today can be smaller. My novel is at 33,707 words right now and this week alone I've written well over 8,000 words. This month is going really well for me in the novel writing department.

Chapter 10 ended at a little over 2,000 words. Chapter 11 has over 1,000 already. My novel is over 40% done with the goal being 80,000 words. Yep, the novel has over 32,000 words so far. Not only do I think I'll get more than 35,000 done this month but I might really get close to finishing the novel.

This book seems to be easy for me to make progress on. I wrote 1950 words yesterday, and that was all of chapter 9. If I keep this momentum going not only will I make my goal but I could get 50,000 words in since the daily requirement for that during nanowrimo is 1667. Will easily make my 10,000 goal for the week as well.

Amazing how some books seem a struggle to write and others are almost a breeze. I hadn't even planned to write this book for this year, had only a little over 3,000 words on it. Now, I have over 28,000 words. So exciting and a bit of a surprise.

Doing good so far. I wrote 1700 words last night. That finished chapter 8 of the novel and today I can start writing chapter 9.

The rewrite looks great so far and can't wait to finish the chapter 1 portion.

I want to get my screenplay into the right hands.

I loved last month's challenge of writing 30 minutes every day so I am continuing it into March.

I want to get back to several projects I've left on the shelf with fresh eyes.

Going to write today and get started on my goals. For this month and writing I'm going for 35,000 words on the Hero Novel. Of that, 10,000 words are going to be for this first week. Mad dash is fun and helps break things up by having the week long goal to get part of the month goal done.

Also want to work on novel rewrite for Defiance. Almost done with chapter 1. It's almost at 2,000 words when the original was only 900 so I'm very pleased.
