I am so behind on word count in NaNoWriMo that it’s frightening. I have just over 1,000 words clocked. The app tells me that at the rate I’m going, I will hit 50,000 words during the second week in May.
This working full time is cramping my style…
I’m writing the coolest story, though. It’s a horror/end-of-life-as-we-know-it kind of thing and it takes place on a cruise ship. I’m having a difficult time actually typing, because the cat wants to help (I accidentally locked her out for nearly an hour, and she feels I owe her something for that…).
I know… I said I was going to reformat an old screenplay for NaNoWriMo this year, but when I went to my dashboard to input my novel, out came the title of The Cruise – an old glimmer of an idea that was sparked from a conversation from a twitter-friend. She suggested I participate in the making of a new graphic novel – 2012-style; that’s how long ago she came up with it. She knew a graphic artist who was looking for inspiration. I fell in love with the idea, and then neither of us ever brought it up again.
I’m spending glorious hours immersing myself in luxury cruise liner photos and layouts and blueprints and in the center of my head sits the most marvelous cruise ship to sail any ocean, and it’s about to become a graveyard/slaughterhouse/torture chamber.
If I could just get this cat off my lap and keyboard.
Oh, and NaBloPoMo? Yeah, I tripped out of the gate… flunked out on Day 1. 🙁 Every year, I swear!
