WIP Day - NaNoWriMo Week 2

Another week is coming to a close.
How am I doing you ask?

I am chugging along!  I have to admit, I am a bit downhearted that I do not seem to be busting this out as fast as I have in previous years.  Though I am ahead of the "needed" amount to finish on time, I know I could have so much more.  Still, I am ahead.  I just need to keep reminding myself this.

Hey Kimmel!  I miss writing with you! (Had to shout that out...)

I think the research has been the most entertaining part this week.  I reached a spot in LJ where I realized I needed to actually look some things up before I moved forward with the story.  I googled for a bit, then moved over to Facebook to ask for help from my friends.  Lucky for me, tips and thoughts came pouring in.

Thank you, friends.

I giggle at the thought of what someone who didn't know me would think if they saw my internet browsing history:

Child labor laws
Korean family structure
How to print a newspaper
Explosives

Just to name a few...
Oh, the things writers look up!

My current count 
(as of about an hour ago):
27,126

I plan on writing more tonight.  Thank goodness for Twitter #writeshoves and Portland region sprints.  You all are saving my bum this year.  Hopefully I will sail into the 30k word mark in the next day or less.

My fingers are hurting.  I think I might have caused early arthritis.  My back is pain, my bum feels flat, and my brain is smoking.  Boy, does this feel amazing!  I have vowed to never let myself go this long without writing again.  And now you are my witnesses!


And to close, here is a little thought from dear Millie

"Most of life isn't a good idea. But we keep doing it." 
-Millie, (Lady Justice)

How are you doing?  Writing away?  Do share!

Happy Writing!

I was wondering if there is going to be a sequel to prison nation. I loved the book.

Hey there Anonymous!

Yes, there will be a sequel! In fact, that is what I am writing right now! The title is Lady Justice and I am aiming for a summer 2013 release. :)
