(But they’re all fantastic…)
Wow. I watched ‘The Greatest Showman’ today (with my two sisters and Mum) and it was fantastic. A great story, wonderful, memorable songs, and a fantastic cast including Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams and Zendaya. So much colour and music and dancing – it’s something you need to see on the big screen. The whole cast was incredible. And did I mention Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron? I loved it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I just finished (binge) watching Season 2 of Stranger Things. OMG. This season was even better than the first. Chapter 8 though. Shocking, scary and sad. Prepare yourself if you haven’t watched it yet…
It has to be one of the best television shows I’ve ever seen. The acting is brilliant, particularly the young leads, the story is funny, scary and original, and the monsters are suitably nightmarish. It’s just so GOOD.
I love it.
With another NaNoWriMo under my belt, bringing my total novels to EIGHT (including two completed during a couple of Camp NaNoWriMos in 2014), I decided to reward myself. My laptop keyboard is not ideal for a touch typist like me – it’s too flat – and typing for long periods of time on it actually makes my hands and fingers ache.
But I love my laptop. Solution? An external mechanical keyboard. But this is not just any boring mechanical keyboard. It’s a beautiful white and gold retro keyboard made by Azio (and no, they haven’t paid me to say that!). I’m hoping that using it will inspire me to actually edit and publish my seven unedited and unpublished novels (including this year’s effort) – because it’s sooooo pretty! I can’t wait to try it out!
I’m a WINNER! Yay! 6,891 words today, bringing my total to 50,281. My “official” total on the site was 50,628 (and I’m happy to accept that)! I wrote on only 18 of the 30 days, so once again I made things difficult for myself by being slack for half the month, but I made it in the end. Woohoo! Now I can binge-watch Season 2 of Stranger Things guilt free!
Goodnight my fellow Wrimos! See you all next year!
A hard-won 3,327 words tonight, bringing my total to 43,374. I’d really like to get over the line tomorrow – but I will probably need that extra day!
Anyway, I’m pretty happy with that total, even though it fell short of my goal (again) of 5,000 words.
Damn you, procrastination!
On the home stretch now, my fellow Wrimos! I was aiming for 5,000 words today, but I did my usual procrastination thing and didn’t sit down to write until late this afternoon. Whoops! However, I did manage 4,129 words, bringing my total to 40,047. Yay! I can smell sweet success just around the corner…
After an internet drought, it finally came back online today! Yay! But that also meant that I was even more distracted than usual. Whoops! However I did manage 2,065 words, bringing my total to 35,918.
I’m not unhappy with my total today, but I need to do more per day if I hope to reach that magic 50,000 by midnight on 30 November! But in the immortal words of Scarlett O’Hara: “Fiddle-dee-dee!”. Sorry, wrong quote. That should have been: “After all, tomorrow is another day!”
I went to my first write-in for 2017 today. Unfortunately, it was also the LAST write-in, but at least I made it! It was lucky I went though because the 2,226 words I wrote there were all I wrote today, although I had every intention of writing a few thousand more! Oh well. My word count stands at 33,853, so 50,000 is definitely doable. I just have to do a couple of really big days!
But that’s OK. I still have five whole days of NaNoWriMo 2017 to catch up!
