And the novel grows

I'm ahead of schedule, and have almost 6K words for the month so far. The novel is a solid one, but I can tell I'll get bogged down in editing, so I'll have to take it places I have a lot of waiting time to do the editing, and count the re-writes seperately.

I read where a lot of professional novelists set a goal for themselves of 2000 words a day...and since I can crack out 1600 while working a job that consumes 50 - 70 hours of my week, live alone and run my house, have a bit of a social life AND write a weekly news parody, I don't think that 2k a day is an unrealistic goal for my next run at this (in August). NaNoWriMo has been kind of a joy every time I've tried it, but this time I'm doing it completely on my own, and I won't have a complete novel for three months, so it's a bit harder.

I won't get too deep into the plot here, but by the end of the month, I'll have a sample chapter up for people to read.

I will also be taking down the two completed NaNoWriMo novels and putting up sample chapters of them as well, as I will be offering one of them as an eBook by the end of the year, and the other one will be getting a "sequel" that will bring it up to respectable novel length, and will make the rounds to publishers. And yes, I will prolly blog that process as well.

Because if it isn't on the net, it didn't happen.

The two episodes of Drew Carey were very odd last night...almost a domestic comedy with Mimi as his "wife". Now I KNOW I missed a lot with ABC shuffling the show around all last season.
