I'm starting again... LOL

OK I read what I have written so far on that one morning early Jan and I like it... but I want to start again.

The other thing is that I have a net book, not exactly designed for this, I have MS Works on there. I used the word processor thingy and some how managed to save it as a read only, then when I tried to add to it I couldn't!!!!!! wtf??????

So tell me what you're using... I need details people!!! and do you have an outline already done?

Help!!!! I so have a better idea and need to get it down before it's gone!! Thanks y'all.

Count me out

Hello fabulous writers,

Much to NO ONE's surprise, I'm not even going to finish the slacker version of NaNoWriMo. so January will have to suck it, too. I am having a rough time (if you saw my post yesterday on The Mother Load) and am not putting this pressure on myself for now. Maybe February?

I totally suck and I understand if you all hate me now.

Okay so I am in slack mode! Anyone else having this problem? My word count is so craptastic for this week I'm totally too ashamed to even post it.

How is everyone else doing?

Quirkyloon's Word Count

Woo-hoo! I actually did some writing! I didn't think I would! And if it weren't for family duties (the nerve of them needing me) I'd still be writing!


This is soooo unusual for me.

Erin's Word Count

Okay, so I'm already the "SLACK" in NaNoSlackMo, because I'm way behind. I suck at this.
I'm sure everyone else is already halfway there!

Um Yeah,,,, what is it we're doing here????

OK so here we are, January 2010, the big beginning to a new era of writing, literary geniuses from all over the blogosphere are telling November to suck it and embarking on a new chore to ignore project which we can do simultaneously, supporting and encouraging each other.  So where's the first paragraph, McGilly? Where indeed?  Haven't done it yet have you? Well technically, no, there are no words on paper per se but there are words darting around my head like astronauts on crack!!!

See, I am one of those people who don't START things easily... not a self starter you might if you were all to come over and have a glass of wine with me and get me laughing and feeling all funny and creative I'd be off on a roll.   However, I'm here all alone and wondering what the heck I'm going to do in order to actually begin the begin, take the first step, poke my toe in the water that kind of thing?????

I am great at the humor, I hope!!! People seem to like my blogging and I love to read books by funny women.... so that's a possibility.  Then again, I love mysteries and can always spot the twist before anyone else in the room, except for that last episode of Dexter.. that just about killed me!!! scuse the pun.

Well it's still early days right?  Do we have little tiny goals?  Are we supposed to be so many words in by now? or have a title? or an idea?  it just occurred to me I haven't even had the good manners to check out everyone else's word counts. Is that even a good idea? It may throw me into an even bigger frenzy of Startaphobia Panic Attackicus.

I could be starting the book instead of wittering on about nothing here, couldn't I, could I .... yes I damn well can... I'm off to start.... ok here I go... wish me luck!!!!! muwaahhhhh

Happy New Year EVERYONE!!!!

Sooo....... who else kissed their loved ones at precisely midnight and then ran to their computer and furiously typed at least 854 words for NoMoSlackMo?

Yea, me either.

But I am writing today. It's a great excuse for hubby to make lunch and play Spongebob Truth or Square with the boys.

I hope you will join me! Stop by and say hi. Help me stay motivated and I'll help you stay motivated.

Don't forget to update your word count widget and check out the AWESOME forum Kimi set up.

I just woke up ten minutes ago.... this truly is the worst post I've ever written. I mean, I'm saving all my literary genius for the NoMo. Mmmmmmhmmm.

Anyone want some coffee? I may or may not spike it with a little Baileys.
