NaNoWriMo '09 Winner

I won again! That's four years in a row, thankyouverymuch. Not that I have a finished manuscript, by any means, but I have a whole lot more of one than I did at the beginning of November. :D

There's something a little creepy and wrong (yet amusing) about surfing the NaNoWriMo Erotic Fiction forum while watching a "Jonas" marathon on Disney Channel.

It was not intentional, I assure you.

My Eclectic Weekend )
So, my weekend in a nutshell:  medieval music and great food and drinks.  Not too darned bad, if a little bit odd in this particular combination.  ;)

Now I need to finish up my stuff for my publisher and get it sent off.  Woot!

Oh!  I almost forgot!  Go check out the free holiday stories over at The Samhellion Blog!  Mine will be up tomorrow. :D

And assuming our lead over Maryland holds until midnight, we'll be the regional winner for the third year running.  Cross your fingers, okay?  it's about a 670,000 word lead right now with two hours to go.  I think we'll make it, but it ain't over 'til it's over, you know? I didn't make 60K on the novel itself, but it's still not done yet, so there's still time to cross that mark.  Not for NaNoWriMo, of course, but that's okay.  As long as I finish at all, I'll be pleased.

Looks like, once I finish the novel, it'll be over 60K on its own.  I'm so close, I should be able to make that tomorrow.  Whether or not it'll be done is another matter entirely.

Someone at WW the other week said they know someone who decided for her own reasons that Thanksgiving was about being with friends and family, not about the food. ...  While I enjoy friends and family, let's do a quick reality check here.  Thanksgiving Is All About The Food.

I found the day itself virtually stress free.  I made my cranberry jell-o salad and sweet potato pie on Tuesday.  Cleaned and vacuumed Wednesday night.  Made my stuffing and mashed potatoes Thursday.  NordicBoy was in charge of the bird.  He was a little stressed, but there was no need.  It turned out perfectly.  Yay, NordicBoy!  And Yay , Alton Brown whose recipe he used!

We had a lovely afternoon of food and chatter with my folks and my bro.  [livejournal.com profile] lethlogica  and her folks came by for dessert, and it was great to see them all.  Much hilarity and food consumption was ehnjoyed by all.

Today is for chilling out and for writing.  I printed out my print galley for my book just now so I can do a final proof on a hard copy.  You always find different things on the page than you do on the screen.  I need to start on it a.s.a.p., too.  It's due to my publisher on 8 Dec.  (I'm so glad I don't have  a regular day job, although I am going into NordicBoy's office on Monday.  And I have to be out somewhere every evening next week.  Thank the gods there's a weekend right before I have to turn this thing in!)

Had an awesome write-in down in Olympia with Jenboo, Jaunthie, and K-B.

Words today:  3089

Total to date:  53777

And that means I'm now over 50K on my novel alone, without including the short story I wrote the other week.  :D
