I knew I'd be seriously busy and would be spending more time away from the puter so set up posts automatically.  For some reason, they didn't post.  Sigh.

So, all those witty posts that I took the time to write will languish away.

But...maybe I'll figure it out one day soon.

How did y'all do?  Did you finish?  Did you get farther than you thought?  Will you give it another shot next year?  What did you like about NaNo, what did you dislike?

And, while I'm here, Happy Holidays y'all!!!

Nov. 17th - Affirmation


I got so busy with my own writing I totally forgot to post this morning.  Here's today's affirmation anyway.

I am a winner.  I was not created to fail.

Even if you aren't  on track to finish this month, keep on writing.  You'll have more at the end of the month than when you started on the first.  Don't let not reaching 50k cause you to doubt or stop writing.

Finally...Nov. 9th Affirmation

I'm back online at home...

Here's today's affirmation even though late.

I have unlimited potential; I have unlimited creativity.

So, how y'all doing?  I'll update things later this afternoon or this evening.

Oh...seems like part of my dish had a crack and when it rained, water filled up in the crack.  It had begun drying out cause I discovered I could get online about 20 minutes before the techy guy got here to fix it.  He replaced the part so it'll better now.

Nov. 4th - Affirmation & Progress

By think I've got it!!! Just in case I'm not able to get online today, I'm scheduling today's affirmation.

I don't wait for inspiration.  Work inspires inspiration.  If I succeed, I'll keep working.  If I fail, I keep working.  Whether I feel interested or bored, energized or tired, encouraged or discouraged, I keep working.

How are you feeling about your progress so far?  Are your plots going as expected or are your characters acting up?

Nov. 3rd - Affirmation and Progress

I'm trying to get this right again...will see what happens this time. :-)

Images and words come easily when I sit down to write.

So, how'd you do today?  Are you having fun?  Any problems or unexpected surprises?

Monday, November 2, 2009


Well...somehow I screwed that auto-posting thing up.

And yes, there is a place called "WhatABurger".  They have really great chocolate shakes and free wifi so here I sit while son is at piano lessons.

But...I should have (got all 15 toes crossed anyway) internet at home sometime tomorrow.  At least hubby thinks that's what the guy said. 

Since I screwed up the auto-posting thing for the other day and today...I'll repost the affirmations now.

1.  Creativity flows through me easily and effortlessly.
2.  I am a creative person and develop my plots with confidence and imagination.

Now...repeat several times a day.

So, how are you doing in your writing the last two days?  Share in the comment thread and let us share the journey with you.

Also, if you want to have your progress meter added to the side, create one at StoryToolz and email me the html code and I'll post it soon as I can.
