I have until midnight to get to 25,000. I'm confident that I can.
A quick question to you NaNo veterans. Do you still upload your story, even if you didn't reach 50,000? I think you do, but I'm still getting the hang of the NaNo thing.
In other news, I finally joined Twitter! I'm @prernapickett, so look me up. I'm going to add a gadget to my side bar on my blog page some time later this week. So far it's really interesting to see SO many writers on there. It's crazy how all this social networking connects everyone. Pretty cool.
Okay, so I've mentioned on here before how much I dislike writing Query letters. Mainly because I suck at them. I've been practicing, and have improved, but it's still a pain. Then I realized that a synopsis is so much more evil than a query letter. Having struggled with this for quite some time, I found this awesome post over at rubyslipperedsisterhood on writing a Seven paragraph synopsis. Yeah, you read that correctly- SEVEN. This post has helped me SO MUCH with the dreaded synopsis. Now that I have a clear outline of what my goals should be for each paragraph, it's much easier. Follow the link and see for yourself. If this is something you struggle with, much like myself, it'll change EVERYTHING *says in a deep, booming voice*. Okay, the caps was a bit dramatic, but it's the only way to get you to understand how much its helped me out.
Hope everyone is enjoying their last day in Novemeber. All you NaNoers, write your hearts out in these last few hours left in the day.
