NaNo. I'm so ready to take you on.

I'm actually excited for NaNo this year. I tried it last year and failed miserably, but this year I'm really ready to give it a go. I have a shiny new idea, and though I'd rather research it a little more, I'm going to dive in.

So, Tuesday's will be my NaNo updates. If you're doing NaNo or revising or whatever, you can update with me!

So, first day of NaNo. How many words do I have? A big fat Zero. I didn't get up early this morning. It was rainy and cold and I liked my bed. So I'll start tonight when the kidlets go to bed.

I slept in this morning due to a sinus thing, so I have 0 words as well, but I'm ready to get at it this afternoon.

Good luck.

Love pirates! Love that scene in the first PotC movie when Will Turner says, with disappointment, "You cheated!" And Jack Sparrow responds in a sing-song, "Pi-rate!"

I'm NaNo-ing for the first time. Would love to buddy with you . . . my grand total for today is also 0 words. But the night is still young . . .

Jessie Oliveros said...

Maybe your pirate book and my pirate book can get together and play sometime. Or something.

Michelle Teacress said...

I suppose pictures do inspire me to write. Music too. :)

Good luck with NaNo. *cheering*

JEFritz said...

Isn't NaNo fun?

I love those pics. Is it about pirates? And time travel? Whatever it is, you've piqued my interest. Good luck with the writing!

Lana said...

ohhhh intriguing photos!
I like the idea of staying in a warm bed while it rains outside, and THINKING about your story so that when you're ready to get up, everythings all thought all.
I'm also doing NaNo and recording my progress.
Good luck!

Sarah Pearson said...

Who isn't a fan of pirates? :-)

Hope you made your word count!

Michelle Merrill said...

Ah...I couldn't see the last two pictures! I want to see them! :) Good luck your NaNo. I think I know what it's about and I'm jealous you'll get yours done before I start mine. I'm excited to read it though. Even if it's first draft. You are an awesome writer!

Amanda Olivieri said...

Ohh, I never thought of using pictures for inspiration! I usually use music, but pictures...hmm...I think I will try that :)

A.L. Sonnichsen said...

How fun!

I'm doing NaNo, too, for the first time. So far I love how it has bumped up writing in my list of priorities. Not that I have a ton of wiggle room in that list, but so far (in the last two days- ha!) I've been making more time for it, which is awesome.

Best of luck!!
