Day 2 of NaNoWriMo & PiBoIdMo

I will not be blogging every day through NaNoWriMo, that would get old pretty quickly, I think – boring for you.   But my story is coming along, a little spooky, a little mysterious, a little jumbled up.  🙂  I’m hoping it all gets sorted out eventually.  So far I’m in the first part where the character shaping is happening and the story is gradually unfolding.  Usually, I don’t even know ahead what’s happening until I start writing it down.  The ideas are coming and I hope they keep doing so all through November.

I am writing longhand for this, too – not doing it on computer –  so at the end I will have to move it all over in order to submit it to the NaNo website for verification of having met the goal of 50,000 words.  (And I plan to make it!)  Apparently there is a program or site that helps do that.  It must work okay because I’m not the only one using the ‘old fashioned’ way to meet the challenge – you know, pen and paper.  🙂

Tonight, with a friend’s instructions, I loaded two widgets –>there on the right side of the page.  These will keep a count of my words for NaNo, and I will make note on the special page I set up for that, as well.

I also came up with a second a picture book idea for the Picture Book Idea Month challenge.  So I am doing okay so far.  Only 28 days to go!  🙂

So, no blog posts such as this every day, but a daily count and maybe a few thoughts on the NaNoWriMo Updates (2010) page.

Thanks for your interest.

How is your Autumn shaping up?  Any creative musings going on?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
