Nano, Round the Third

Yes, I've been absent. Yes, I'm terribly sorry and will try not to let it happen again. Yes, I say that every time :o)

However, the good news is that I'm officially done with study for the year - hoorah! :) So, there is nothing else to distract me until the end of February, when I start again with a new course, at a new university. How shiny B-)

So, because of the Last and Final Push to Get Assessment Done, not much has been happening on the nano front lately. HOWEVER, it's kinda good in a way, because I'm itching insanely to get back to it. I can't wait; I'm bouncing in excitement.

I don't have the official stats on me at the moment - I'll edit them in this afternoon - but for now, the month's progress looks something like this:

* 'Official' Nano words: 12,908
* Of which, 9,139 are on Jesscapades
* Total for the month for all writing is a hair short of 30k
* Of which, ~12.5k is assessment
* Of which, about 8,750 was for my 'short' story for archaeology!! Gah! The thing was supposed to be 5k, but it turned into a monster. The story itself is, I think, 7,260; the remainder is footnotes. Gah!!

So. Assessment is over, and I can get back to writing - and blogging. Happy days indeed :o) I can't wait to snug with my laptop this afternoon and get cracking on Jess again. I also really want to get going on the TP rewrite, and churn out some shorts - the only subs I've done for months have been resubs. Oh, and I have to work on the draft of 33 Mistakes About Dogs, too.

So much to do! And I have time to do it all! Hoorah!

Yes, I have miss you, dear one....

Glad you're back.

But, alas, now you're busy with writing and NaNo has consumed us all.

I blame you and Lei completely for destroying my November....

BUT I forgive you. Monarch will be worth it, and I thank you. *bows*

Good LUCK!!!! with everything, Inky.

Welcome back to our world.


You've been missed.

*reads Glam's post*

Wait! How is this my fault? I didn't start NANo? I didn't hold hot pokers to your keyboard and force you to write!

I'm innocent!

Innocent as a cat with feathers sticking out of its mouth. %-)

Yay for more writing time, Inky! Once the world calms down again, I can't wait to read about Jess.

*throws confetti*

And yay to no more school for a while!

Congrats on the WC. Sounds like you're moving along great, and now that official education is out of the way, there'll be no stopping you!

Thanks, everyone. Your support means the world to me :o)

I'm so glad you're excited to read Jess, Dany!

And yes, Glam, November is insane B-) But Nano is fun, and you get a shiny novel out of it, so all good :)

Thanks, all, for missing me!
