The Bucking Horse is Winning, But I'm Still at the Rodeo


A week ago I was within 1,500 words of my goal. Today, at 12,294 words, I'm 50% behind.

Sigh...

A weekend full of grading and prepping, combined with family obligations kept me from writing.

Miss visiting all of you. Trying to pop around when I get a few minutes here and there.

Hugs,

Pseudo

Real life has been interfering with what I want to be doing lately too. I hate it when that happens ... and it's only going to get worse with the holidays approaching!

Don't worry about us, girl! Get that book written!

Kristan said...

Funny, whenever I check the wordcounts (usually once or twice a day) I keep thinking HOW PROUD I AM OF YOU!! You've got mad craziness going on and you're still kicking butt!!

I'm only at 9277 words but I'm determined to speed ahead.

Remember, this is still 12,294 more words than you would have written otherwise.

YEEHAW!

Hang in there Pseudo. I'm not far behind you. Need to update what I did get done this weekend, but I think any amount of words we get down get us closer to an all more important goal of getting our book written. Or so I keep telling myself.

Write ON! Word by word.

It's that time of year for a school teacher. Check in when you can clear your schedule a bit.

Heidi said...

Good luck catching up. I don't know how you find the time to write at all. Do you sleep?
I hope we get to eventually read your novel.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Keep going, Pseudo! You can do it!

Matty said...

Forward progress. Onward march!

Joanna Jenkins said...

That's a lot of writing! Don't give up.

So what if you do not make it??? Just finish it late. It will probably be better that way anyway!

blueviolet said...

You can catch up! Don't beat yourself up over it though. :)

Beth said...

I am amazed with all my blogging friends that are writing. Good job. No worries, we will all be here when you get the time.

Call it "Finding qwerty": Just keep typing, just keep typing...
We're cheering, and we'll wait.

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

Hey, you have 12,200 more words than when you started; that's pretty awesome!
What's the book about?

Fragrant Liar said...

Don't knock your progress. You're still far ahead of where you were before you started Nano. Good for you!

Dingo said...

I'm impressed that you are still at it. I think it's commendable that you are least keeping up with the intent of the Nanananathingy.

Captain Dumbass said...

Dig in your heels.

Deep breath...and think that you have already written over 10K words! And don't apologize for having a busy life..I think everyone understands how that happens. GOOD LUCK!
