State of the novel

Since the posting below, I've written about 5000 additional words. Problem is, I somehow ran out of plot at about 21 000 words.
Since I couldn't get the motivation up to write on the novel (and I don't have the mad productive skillz of Stephanie, who wrote more than 50k words in a month without even trying), I also didn't blog, because that makes sense. or not. Anyway, I might have a faint idea on how to proceed, so I will resume writing soon - especially since my sister assures me that it is brilliant. Of course, she would say that, since Christmas is around the corner. Maybe I should ask her again after she's got her present...

Whatever the state of the novel, blogging will resume henceforth. Be prepared.


  1. I think that's what I don't like about NaNoWriMo. For me, forcing something before it's ready leads to garbage, the kind of garbage that can't be salvaged and can only be used to line bird cages. I know some people work well that way but, for some of us, it's disaster.

    And, if that method doesn't happen to work, you get a little discouragement (as if writers needed any more).

  2. Well, NaNoWriMo worked insofar as it got me of my ass and writing, but you are right that sometimes you just can't force it. I'll try and adhere to a less strenuous writing schedule in the future - maybe that will work!

  3. Every season,I like to change my handbags.So I have many handbags in my wardrobe.All my handbags are handbags knockoffs.Because replica handbags are much cheaper.Among all my handbags,I like Goyard Handbags best.But in this winter,I want to buy UGG Handbags.I have a pair of fake UGG Classic Tall Romantic Flower boots,the quality is good,so I think the quality of UGG Handbags should be good too.In addition to UGG Handbags,I also want to buy UGG Classic Argyle Knit boots.
