PiBoIdMo and NaNoWriMo Updates

It's November 7th! And do you know what that means?

Day seven of NaNoWriMo and PiBoIdMo!

So how has it been going, you ask?

I am happy to announce that I have ELEVEN new ideas in my PiBoIdMo notebook. Though, technically, I can only count nine of them because the first two came to me on the last day of October. But still, that's two days ahead!

NaNoWriMo has been more of a challenge. For starters, it began on a Friday, which in itself is a rather tall hurdle for me to overcome. But add to that having my hubby home from work, and going to my sister's house for dinner--and it becomes a wall to scale rather than a hurdle to leap over! Saturday wasn't much better because we were having dinner guests and I spent a major chunk of the day cleaning house and cooking a big pot of pozole. Sunday...well, Sundays are a challenge of their own. And Monday? Monday I spent organizing Sunday School curriculum for the next six weeks. Talk about a chore!

None of these things would normally be big issues, but with NaNoWriMo every day counts! So, I am behind. My word count is hovering at around 8,000. But I have been writing every day. And I mean to catch up, darn it!
