It has been an interesting week with a lot of meetings and stuff to take of my time. Mostly I have been spending a lot of time thinking about what to do for the future. The next two days are free of meetings and appointments with anyone so I look at it as a singular opportunity to get some writing done.
1) NaNoWriMo – tomorrow will be the half way point on National Novel Writing Month and one is supposed to be at the 25000 word mark by the end of Saturday. I am short of that by about 7000 words but I have two days to kind of make that up. Planning on spending some time not only getting to 25000 words but perhaps farther than that.
2) The Blog – I actually am only a couple posts behind for the week. my chief problem is getting past the next Christian Marriage Bed post because of the subject matter is challenging to present. If I get past it though it might be the first week in a long time that I actually might hit all my posts for the week.
Given these two things have some work ahead for them, I am engaged in a writing marathon for the next two days. Be the end of Saturday I want to be looking back at a full weekend of writing where my novel is at the 30000 word mark so that is about 6000 words a day, which I have done before. I also have the following blog posts to do in order: Marriage Bed, Theology Pub, Rabyd Philosophy, Bill of Rights, Open God Through the Scriptures and Rabyd Iron. That’s six posts so that’s about three posts power day so it is probably going to be 2000 words on novel, blog post, 2000 words on novel, blog post…until finished. When you see the Rabyd Iron post the Marathon will be over.
One final note for this week. A fellow NaNoWriMo participant and fellow blogger asked if he could use me as one of the characters in his novel. I agreed it was OK as long as he was quoting me as much as possible. He is referring to this blog a lot but I have been fictionalized for the first time in my life. You can check out what he is doing at his blog but be warned Robert is a naturist/nudist and writes on a lot of different topics related to his life and philosophy. The post in question is here So far what he has shown me has been pretty faithful to what I am an believe.
Blessings and Cheers!
