This weekend was full of writing delights, and revision plights. Okay, so I'm done with revisions (for now) but I wanted to rhyme...it's what the cool kids do. I got just over 7,500 words down since Nov. 1st began...not too shabby. I would have more, but I took yesterday off and watched the first season of Homeland after my hubby begged me to (it's one of his favorite shows). So far I'm really enjoying it, but it kind of also freaks me out because of the terrorist aspect...stuff like that hits a little too close to home.
I sent the newest and most polished (not saying I didn't miss a grammatical error here or there) version of Fire and Ice to my CP. I'll be waiting anxiously to see what she thinks (*fingers crossed she doesn't hate it*). But I need more eyes, so I was hoping a few of you might want to Beta for me? Pretty Please? If not, that's totally cool, but if you can, please leave a comment or e-mail me at prernapickett at yahoo dot com. I'm willing to read something of yours in return, if you so choose to volunteer.
Okay, back to NaNo. I'm discovering all sorts of fun things about my NaNo project. I had a somewhat clear idea of what I wanted to do with the plot (I had a beginning and end, that is the extent of my drafting), but other things have popped up that are making it much more interesting than my original plan...isn't that fun? Right now I'm gorging on the words like a starving model at an all you can eat buffet, but I'm not expecting this to last (but wouldn't it be great if it did?). Until then, I'll be happily typing and focusing all of my energy on getting to that 50,000.
Time for me to get off the interwebz and get to writing. Hope all you NaNoers out there are doing great, I'm cheering you on. And don't forget to let me know if you're interested in Beta-ing.
