Word Count:

So, NaNo is up and running, and so am I. My current word count for the week is 11,554 in my NaNo work. At this point, I am loosely titling the series, The Return, but it might be End of Days or The Circle (as in the circle of life). See my NaNo page for a summary of the work and to learn about my characters.

I have not written outside of NaNo, but I did get my final chapter of my current fan fic back from my beta; my beta is a published author who has served as president of her local RWA chapter and is an extraordinary editor. Her comments indicated that I did not need to change one single word or bit of punctuation!

Weight Loss:

Well, I still haven’t lost much (like three pounds, overall), but then, I haven’t changed my eating habits much, either. The exercise is making me more flexible, and I am finding that I need my afternoon nap less and am less lethargic throughout the day. I leave to visit my folks in New England for a few days tomorrow and will be walking outdoors while I’m there—they live in a pretty, hilly area that will test my legs more than my treadmill does.


It’s cold in them thar hills! Well, on the plateau that is Central Florida, anyway. We went back up to the 80s again for a few days and the A/C had to go back on, but this morning it was 54ºF. In New England, it has apparently been in the 40s during the day where my parents live. I am packing every sweater I own, as well as my jeans and my sweats. Wish my boots weren’t falling apart.

Hi, Lynne ~ souns like you have a lot of things going on and are making progress. I hope I can participate in NaNoWriMo next year. I've never done it before but it sounds like a lot of fun. Good luck with the WIP!

Thanks, Mae! I got a little behind with arriving in CT and all the chaos, but am now caught up on word count. NaNo for me has been the kick in the pants I needed to get back to writing--setting the expectations and watching the numbers grow steadily. I'm really liking the story as it unfolds. It'll be interesting to see where it goes. :)

Weight is probably another matter--my folks have a house just FULL of candy and cookies and all that bad for you stuff. :( I shall have to get back on the wagon, as it were, when I get home tomorrow.
