I've Finished NaNoWriMo 2008!

I've finally finished NaNoWriMo 2008. My novel isn't finished yet; but a HUGE chunk is done. I'm still doing 70 Days of Sweat, so I've still got work to do.

I'm a 15, 690 words

I woke up early this morning to throw myself into this writing. I do this every year. I think I can make the deadline of 50,000 words by Sunday; but geez... I do this every year. At least because this is NaNoWriMo, I can detour and experiment, go down plot paths that I might not try otherwise. At least I'm well past my goals for 1000 Club and I'm keeping up with 70 Days of Sweat. Sven would be proud. Well, I'm going to get back to my writing. I've still got 34,310 words to go.

Richard Matheson interview by William Simmons

Richard Matheson interview by William Simmons

Don't worry, I'm writing. I wish I'd kicked this writing into a faster gear sooner; but I do this every year. I was looking up something about premise, and then remembered that I wanted to look up Richard Matheson. He's written a lot of Twilight Zone episodes; and that's part of the feel that I'd like to have in this story. I was hoping he'd have some writing advice. I didn't realize that he's written SO MANY books that became movies that I love. Somewhere in Time, I Am Legend, What Dreams May Come, Stir of Echoes. All I can say is WOW! So I'm going to read this interview, then...

I'm going to watch FRINGE! I can't help it, I totally LOVE that show!

Electrabela y Dinachica

All thoughts of studying and writing have gone out the window!

Kimba The White Lion Opening Theme 1966

I know that I said that I was going to work on my novel, but I found KIMBA. I also used to watch this when I was five. I swear, Disney ripped this off.

Johnny Sokko

I should be be writing my novel. Actually, I should be doing homework, but I'm getting ready to go and work on my novel. I took a little detour because I found JOHNNY SOKKO AND HIS FLYING ROBOT. I used to watch this show when I was five. This show along with KIMBA THE WHITE LION and STAR TREK contributed to my love of all that is science fiction and all that is cheesy.

Why don't you take a look...

I'm INSANE, but at least I'm losing weight!

Yesterday's meeting at Weight Watchers was good. I lost .8 lbs! I've taken off 9.8 lbs total since I rejoined.

I'm still trying to get all of my school work done (painting, drawing, practicing piano-guitar-flute). I'm so nuts. I've added two more Joggles classes, so I have three total--Studio Journal--Sumputuous Fabrics--Personal Symbols. But this wasn't enough for me....

I'M DOING NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month). I'm posting it publicly, so I'll stick with it.

I really am insane.
