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!
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.
