All hail and herald!  I HAVE GOT PAST 50,000 WORDS!!!



Phew.  That was quite a feat.  I needed to be done by Friday, because I'm away at the weekend, but, with a little bit of elbow grease, I seem to have managed it tonight!!

Well, the actual story is not nearly finished.  I don't know what I've unleashed here: all I know is that I got to a bit that felt like the 'end of Part One' so I gave 'Part One' a title, and moved on to 'Part Two'... who knows where we shall end up with this, if we end up at all!  I want to continue, but I think I might have a bit of a break first (an enforced - and entirely welcome - one, in the shape of the weekend, certainly!).

I've achieved a lot today - not just on the writing front, either, but I'll save that stuff for another entry, another time.

Good Night LiveJournal!  And, heartfelt good luck to anyone who is still hacking hard at the NaNoWriMo coalface - or indeed battling with any sort of tangle of words.  Let's just say that I am living proof that 'just a few more words... ooh, that's a hundred odd... maybe a few more... just whilst I'm waiting for X...' REALLY WORKS. XD

It's been fun.  I'm definitely going to buy me a souvenir t-shirt. ;-D

Hehe. Some great advice, there. All I need to do is have someone discover time travel and fetch in a dinosaur or two to my nice 19th C. setting. Result: CARNAGE!! Like a mongrel coupling of H.G. Wells and Michael Crichton! XD

I just spotted your purple bar on the NaNo site and was coming to congratulate you. Well done! I've got a lot of typing today so I can get verified. I've managed to leave it open for a sequel without meaning to haha, but I'm not moving into 'Part 2' territory like you ;-)

Thank you very much! :-) Ah, that's canny: an opening for a sequel (the writing equivalent of 'space for a dishwasher'...?!). Before you know it you'll be churning out an entire series. Prepare for fan worship! XP

Space for a dishwasher and maybe even a spare kettle. My mind is a-whirl with possiblities; I'm thinking a different narrator for book 2 though haha. I want to get away from this story for a while now, though - I've got at least two other things I fancy having a crack at in December, so I can come back to this fresh in January to edit.

How's Part 2 going?

Ah, sounds good. Hope your winter scribbling goes well. :-)

Part 2... on hold, currently. I've been feeling ILL for the past couple of days, and I'm away (unless I take a turn for the worse!!) this weekend. And like you, I have other things that are tempting me to work on them for a change. But I will get back to it!!

Well, aren't you the popular one. You're probably a better writer than I, so I'm thinking it might be worthwhile to come back here more often. Don't have a spaz attack - I haven't added you... yet.

Oooh, now I'm intrigued! ;-P Feel free to drop in again some time if the notion appeals to you. ^_^

Eavesdrop, snoop, and sigh with yearning...

This journal is not a private diary, it is more like an occasional, imaginary column. Therefore, much of it is on public display. However, if you want to read my occasional attempts at creative writing, my Caution Elf tells me I should only show that stuff to my friends. You know what to do. :-)

NB: If you add me in an unsolicited fashion, please introduce yourself. Otherwise I will probably ignore you.
