Day 15 Shout out

November 15th, 2008 (01:05 am)
Tags:

And the dreaded week 2 will soon be over! At the end of today, you should be at 25k. How are you doing? Are y'all hanging in there all right? Hopefully not too many folks have had the screamin' meemies or anything. ^^;

At a guess from what my posts last year, I *maybe* had around 10k at this time last year. (Apparently I hit 25k ~Nov 20/21 last year.) ^^; So even if you're behind, it's still possible to turn things around and sprint to the finish line! ^_^

Me, I'm currently sitting at 25 778. Yay! I'll probably be chopping ~1/3 of this thing when I go to edit. Whoops! Pacing's far too slow. Eep! But that's not this month. :P

None of this this month, but one word I really like in Japanese.
焼き直す--yakinaosu - to rehash/adapt, sic edit to pieces. Literally to burn and fix. Yup, I like this word. :P

So, where are y'all at?

28,000 and counting. ^_^

Keep writing!

I wish I knew the Hebrew equivalent of that word. I did translate a passage dealing with the Garden of Eden and hell for a class homework assignment. Interesting stuff. (Headache galore, too.)

*sigh* The brain's protesting today. (It actually started to balk in the middle of writing up the translation, so I can't say I'm too surprised I got so little written today. >.>

Tomorrow, however, is another day and the weekend. Shall see how much I can get written tomorrow. :P

My mind was protesting to hell and back yesterday. It was most annoying.

Ewwww! Sounds sort of like the near 27k worth of teeth I've got gathering over here. ^^;; I never realised I had that many teeth. (I'm...... part shark??) ^^;;

...is that my job description in Japanese? (Probably not, since I'm not technically an editor of any kind, but it sure sounds cool...)

Good luck with the second half of NaNo!

*laughs* It's actually more in terms of re-releasing an old work after having heavily revised it. It can be your own work or someone else's, so it could apply to what you do as well. ^_^ ...The closest thing I can think of WRT your work would be what happened to the French release of the earlier FB books. I assume a new version has since been released. ^^;

Cheers!

*laughs* I was ahead... and now I'm behind. XXDDD *laughs* Of course, I haven't had a chance to write for the last week, due to several things poppint up... :P But tomorrow I have no real plans, so I will hopefully spend all day writing and get out a massive amount of writing. I can do it!

Whoops! *laughs* Week 2 claims another victim! ^^;

*pulls out pompoms* You can do it! Write, write, write! Good luck! ^_^

Yeah. I knew I wouldn't get to write much.. but then a craft came up that required me to do it in like 2 days time.. and my closet had to be completely cleared out... *laughs* I'm not as far behind as I could be, because I was about 20,000 on the 8th, but I haven't really written more than that now. XXDD

I can totally do this. I have plot and stories, I just need to sit my ass down and write and not get distracted (which is the harder part. XXDD)

Wow! You got ahead pretty far pretty quickly. ^_^

*laughs* I think that's the biggest thing--getting yourself to sit down and *do*. ^^; Good luck!
