Milestone-wise, it was a big week – 250 posts and a two year blogiversary followed by a bunch of exceedingly kind words from all my friends out there on the Internets. I know what I’ll be thankful for this Thanksgiving (well, all year round, really).
NaNoWriMo? I’m just under 20,000 words so far. I should crack that tonight, but then tomorrow begins the five-day Gold Rush road trip. As long as I can hit 1,321 words a night, I can reach 50,000 and “win” this month. It will be tough, but I will have some additional time off work to catch up next week. Even if I don’t make 50,000 before December 1st, projected final wordcount of this draft is around 70,000 words. Fat chance I’ll complete that in November anyway.
Back to the road trip, base camp will be the historic Gunn House Hotel in Sonora, CA. The reviews are good and there’s so much to see within a twenty-mile radius. Fingers crossed that I’ll stumble across a couple of gold nuggets the diggers just happened to miss and I can fund a full-time writing career.
I hope you all had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend!
