#NaNoWriMo Day 13: Real Life Gets in the Way

I painted Erie! It looks nothing like her :P

Happy Friday the 13th, Aledan Merfolk! I’ve had an exciting, busy week, and it’s about to get even more exciting and busy, because YAllFest starts today! I plan to spend the weekend in downtown Charleston, hanging out with author friends and hopefully running into even more author friends! And eating, of course, because you don’t spend a weekend in downtown Charleston without eating at a bunch of amazing restaurants. Rue de John, Closed for Business, Basil, Prohibition…I could go on and on. If you’re going to be in town let me know and we’ll get together for a drink!

NaNo was a bit side-tracked this week. I’ve been writing every day, but it’s been closer to 500 words instead of 1000 (I’m not even trying for 1667 this year – there’s no way it’ll happen). We spent last weekend making all our reservations for our Christmas trip home to see family, then went to a concert on Monday, then bought a car yesterday! Which means all our trip plans have changed because we weren’t expecting to have the car until January 😛 So now we’re trying to rearrange our plans, and it’s making my head spin. I probably won’t get any writing done tomorrow, so here’s hoping I won’t be too YAllFest hungover on Sunday to write.

Maybe next week will be a bit calmer. (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!)

I did have a little revelation about one of the MCs in Enfields last night, so I’m thinking she should be easier to write now. And I’m almost to the really exciting first plot point, where everything suddenly changes for everyone involved. And then…I have no idea what happens until the midpoint. Probably a sex scene. Ok, most definitely a sex scene. And I need to kill an enfield, but not during the sex scene. That would be weird and creepy.

Still can’t wait to edit this giant pile of steaming shit, but I have to have a rough draft to edit first 😉

Have an awesome weekend, Aledans! And I’ll see you at YAllFest!
