Personal Writing Challenge ~ update

It’s been a while since  I posted about this, though I have been updating the PWC page in the side column.

I’ve started Nano… and it seems to happen every time: something about knowing I have to get 1667 a day out come hell or high water, makes me write crap.  It just does.  I’m working on Paladin, a submission for the ‘creamy’ Ellora’s Cave theme, which has to be in for 1 Jan 2009.  I had to hack it apart last night, thicken the descriptions, the characters so that I could write the next part.  I know that’s illegal in the NaNoWriMo world, but if I didn’t I probably wouldn’t write much more on it, lol

So my Nano total so far (including days few words) is: 4384

My PWC total is 279 509. That’s 63 292 since I started about 7 weeks ago. Not bad 😀

Personal Writing Challenge – Whiskey Straight ’08

Dawn Montgomery ran off with my gauntlet and slapped a label on it!

From now until 31 December, she plans to write, write and write some more in the Whiskey Straight ’08. That’s the highball she’s going to knock back on New Year’s Eve as a reward for her months of insanity 😉

I’m going to join her – though not in the drink, I’ll be One-Kidney Kim by then – and try to write…well…a lot *grin*

Off to make my lists. Update soon…
