My 'Things To Do Really Soon' List

Hey guys,

So... I haven't really been here very much, and to be honest, I don't really know why. I've been seriously lazy with my novel. I'm still working on it, haven't given up yet, I've got 30k down so it's not all doom and gloom, but I just can't seem to write if I'm not at a write-in =/

I'll get there though.

Anyway, I have a list of things that I really need to do. Life things, not just novel things or writing things. Some things I want to do before the end of 2011, some things that just aren't attainable before next year.

Either way, I'm going to make a list of them here and hopefully, I'll stick to them. :)

Things To Do before 2012

  • Finish my Novel
  • Edit my Novel
  • Get my novel sent off to Createspace
  • Cut down smoking
  • Plan out a second novel
  • Stop wasting so much money
  • Get a job

Things To Do in 2012

  • Move out of my parents/Doug's parents house into my own flat
  • Get a new-ish car
  • Stop smoking
  • Write a second novel
  • Edit second novel
  • Think about contacting publishers (?)
  • Go on holiday with Liger
  • Give my parents back the money I owe them
  • Pay off credit cards
  • Pay off Phone bills
  • Pay off EVERYTHING
  • Be debt free, basically

Okay so, there we go. There's my list.

I suppose I should keep this slightly novel-related, so... I hit 30k last night :) I'm running out of steam though... I'm going to have to re-write my remaining chapter outlines and add a few things in because I don't think there 20k left in my ideas. =/

How's everyone else getting on? :)


Sunday, 6 November 2011


I have procrastinated ALL day. I haven't written a SINGLE word today.

I feel bad for it, but I'm also horrendously tired and honestly? I can't be bothered.

Which is annoying because last night, before I conked out in bed, I was desperate to write more more more, even though I was SO tired, but it was like 5am and that's pushing the boundaries, even for me. :(

But I'm still a good 6k ahead of the target, so I'm not falling behind. Yet.

NaNoWriMo - Day 4

I say day 4 - for me technically, it's still day 3, as I haven't been to sleep yet and it's only 00:47, but in the technicalities of the world, which tends to overrule my own technicalities, it is now the 4th of November, which makes it the 4th day of NaNo :)


How are we all getting on?

I will admit - I'm starting to doubt my abilities/my novel.

I guess it's because I'm 10k words in and I'm only JUST getting to something actually happening =/

I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing, I'm honestly just waiting it out, I'm going to stick at it because I'm genuinely enjoying it, and I'm going to see where it takes me. :)

So how's everyone else doing? Are we all hitting our daily targets? I sure hope so!

I really want the NaNo site to bring out the word counter widgets, really soon :( I'm getting impatient now... so for now, I'm going to use a different widget from Writertopia.

I quite like it. Hehe. You can change the moods and stuff. :) It's quite cute! I still want the official one though, and for signatures to be working in the forums!

I attended the first write-in and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Such nice people there, I can't wait to go to the next one on Sunday :) I got 6k written in 4 hours at the first write-in - I'm hoping the others will be as productive! I've got targets of 4k per write-in so, here's hoping :)

Anyway! Let me know how you're getting on! I'll try not to neglect my blog as much :)

Love you guys!
