My bad guy is so much more fun and satisfying to write for. *evil*
lieutfaber: (Write it better)
I've decided I'm going to do it.

I've got big gaping holes in my story from last year (wherein I skipped from the middle of the story to a scene I wanted to write later on, and then continued from there, but still didn't get to the end of the story). I skimmed through much of it now taking notes on names etc. so I can muddle through, and I want to pick up again tomorrow.

I'm not gonna be a nano dork and start writing at midnight... Though I could, I suppose.

Oh, and I have to find this year's nano spreadsheet.

It is 10/31/06.

And I still haven't decided if I'm going to do NaNo or not...

I might write the sequel/ending of last year's novel. But I'd have to read it first so I remember what the hell I'm doing. *lol*

Story is totally nowhere near complete. My characters are escaping into the sewers, and the bad guy is still in charge of the kingdom. But I hit 50k. Woot.

Even more fun, in Word, it says my novel is 50,106 words long. Silly NaNoWriMo word validator eating my words.
Currently 89 pages single spaced, 175 double spaced. Wow. And there's nothing in there as filler- no questions to myself, no silly little symbols like # # # # as section markers (each one of those would be counted as a word). Nothing odd except for my chapters... You know, "Chapter Whatever comes next sequentially- The not-so-final battle", or the poetically named "Chapter the Next", cause I didn't have a name for it, and didnt' know/care what number it was at this point in time.

I just printed out my nifty certificate. Yay.

I had a really good day at work. I'm apparently 60/40/20 for the quarter thus far, meaning that I've pulled my numbers up out of the crapper, and am exceeding store and company goals. Huzzah! (This makes me look really really good and hopefully will make them promote me to full-time. *puppy dog eyes*)

Then, afterwards, I went to be ¡social! and went to a write-in with the Central Jersey crew down in East Brunswick. Had a good old time, and got 1000 words written while I was there (OK, so I finished the last couple up after Barnes and Noble made the closing announcements, but I got them done there!) Then, I got lost on the way home, as usual, but eventually found a landmark I recognized. I went on a very nice tour of downtown New Brunswick (Washington called it a cesspit, or some such nonsense. Woot.), but still made it home within an hour.

I wrote another 1200 words or so at home, and now have plans to pass 50k tomorrow before I go to bed.

Of course, story is nowhere near done. I hereby second someone's nomination to designate December as NaNoFiMo- National Novel Finishing Month. Woot woot.

Yeah. So the final battle has been renamed the not-so-final battle. Cause you know, no one dies. Boooo! And the story continues on, ergo it is not final. *sigh* This is a big, rambly story that I don't know where it's going.

Awww, Julie is just the darned cutest thing ever! She's recently discovered that I have a nice little bed for my American Girl doll (I've got Molly, in case anyone cares. I got her in 4th grade because she had glasses.), and this bed is, amazingly enough, just right for a kitty who's lying down straight on her tummy. Ergo, Molly's bed is now a Julie bed. But it's soooooooooooooooooo cute!

Oh. See, I saw someone refer to the entire holiday season as Consumermas, since it's so not really about Christ anymore. And I loved it. And I skeered of going to work tomorrow. I'm there from 11-8, and I skeered. I didn't work at Apple last year on Black Friday, I was at BABW...

OMG, Jess is posting a writing update before the day is over? Shock and disbelief!

Yeah. Jess is done writing, as she is only about 200 words behind again, instead of the thousand she was yesterday when she began writing. *cheers*

Well, I've finally discovered who the old woman really is... >_> Jeffry, you won't find out for ages and ages. It'll be in Chapter... Um... right now it's titled "Chapter whatever comes next sequentially." I lost count, since I started working on the contents of the Book, and they have their own section. But Chapter WCNS is 9-ish. >_< For anyone who cared, I am at 57 pages single-spaced.

This is the most I have ever written on any one thing. Ever. *nods certainly*

Had a good time at a mini-write-in down in South Brunswick. 5 of us showed up, three of them pretty well-practiced writers (one had a manuscript currently being looked at by a publisher, one has been published in L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future- Vol. 18 (I may very well pick that up tomorrow or Saturday with my Borders biweekly 20% off coupons)

I have concluded that I need to do my writing earlier in the day, or else I will be fully screwed when it comes to the end of the month.

Oh, and by the way:
Jess is officially caught up now.

I'm still behind, but catching up again. I had a really crappy day where I only managed 700 words, and I'm still feeling the pain.

[ profile] davitant, I'll work on getting the next section html-ified and posted for you.

Much lurve for the pink bar. <3

Jess is sleepy. Jess should be asleep right now. She has to be at work for a store meeting in seven and one quarter hours.

Jess did not do much writing yesterday on account of being sleepy, but she got in slightly more than 1700 words today. She gets out of work even earlier tomorrow, so she should have even more time in which to attempt to catch up. She should be at 20,000 words today. Doh. At least she is only 823 words behind, as opposed to some people she has read about in [ profile] nanowrimo, who are five thousand words behind or so. Yay.

Jess has the bestest new hoody sweatshirt at work. Fruit-based computer company is introducing a new Easy-Pay system, in which customers can purchase an item with an employee via credit card without having to wait on line. A manager chose certain employees to specialize in the Easy-Pay, and Jess was one of them. So now she gets to carry around a (Windows Mobile-based- the hell?) scanny thing with a credit card swipy. So once a customer purchases an item, they need a bag. In order to carry bags, a shirt needs to have nice big pouchy pockets. A shirt looks dumb with just a pouchy pocket and no hood. Ergo, the shirts for Easy-Pay people are big, nice, soft, comfy black hoodies. And Jess won't have to wear the (most likely) red holiday shirts while she's on Easy-Pay duty. Huzzah! *Jess snuggles her comfy sweatshirt*

Jess also had a very odd customer today. Her children were looking at the new iPods. Jess was working as the greeter, welcoming/bidding a fond farewell to all customers who passed through the doorway. As they passed Jess by on the way out, the mother pointed at Jess's name tag, which happens to have a picture of an iPod on it. The mother said, "Oh, look, isn't that neat!" and reached for Jess's name tag, which just happened to be located on Jess's chest. Jess panicked for a second, then held out her lanyard for the crazy lady to see. Jess's personal space bubble had been violently shattered, and once the crazy lady had exited the store, Jess went and complained pitifully to some of her coworkers.

The end.

Jess hopes you have enjoyed this post all in the third person. Nighty night.
