NaNo update

See my little NaNo calender widget thing? That red square on the Thursday is a bald-faced lie! I did update on that day, but I forgot to update until it was already midnight. I honestly think that must have been Friday, because who stays up till midnight on a "school night"? Not me!

(except I did last night, but that's because I'm reading a rather gripping book...which I may well talk about during the Cephalopod Book Club next week... stay tuned)

So anyway, this where I'm at with NaNo 2015. Let's just say I'm keeping up a relatively new tradition of struggling through November. There used to be a time when I would smash out 50k easily in the first 6 - 12 days, and relax the rest of the time, all the while trying to complete a novel by November's end. That isn't my reality any longer. But at least I'm writing. And at least I'm working on getting back into all my creative interests.

I hope I don't struggle to get writing done tonight, since I have a few after-work appointments to get through before I can start.

I hope you're all having a great November.


  1. Hi Trisha ... well done on getting where you're at now ... I hope you're ready to write when you get back from the day work etc ... have a good weekend - cheers Hilary

  2. You still have a good chance of hitting it. Keep writing!

  3. Amazing post dear! You have a wonderful blog:)
    What about following each other on Instagram, bloglovin, Twitter?.. :)

  4. You got this, Trisha!
    I'm not participating in NaNo this year...but see you at the finish line. :D I'll pop in then to see your final update!

  5. You've nearly finished Nano! Well done!
    (apologies if I've posted this twice, having difficulty with posting on Blogger.)

    1. I deleted your other comment, no worries :)

      I finished last night, a day early. What a relief! Though the novel isn't finished yet. I'd like to get that done in the next week or two.

  6. Congrats on doing so well during NaNoWriMo! And I see from your comment that you finished a day early! Wow! It's cool that you used a widget to help you keep up; without something like that, I know I would quickly fall behind. Hopefully you'll get to enjoy some much needed writing rest in December. :) Time for editing, right?! ;)


Thanks for your words, me hearties! and don't forget to leave a link to your blog somewhere I can find it!
