Yes, that's OctAnNoNaNoWriMowithNoGuilt-o, October and November National Novel Writing Month with No Guilt. Course, it's now November and I've scrapped all the work I did in October. But I'm keeping the acronym!
Thank you for the comments on my "Getting on the plot train" post. I've found your encouragement and suggestions really helpful. And so far they seem to be working.
Current word count: 3500 (roughly; I haven't typed up this morning's scribblings)
Progress on this new project (which is actually a complete rewrite and rehash of an old project) is going remarkably well. I don't know exactly where I'm going, but I have a general idea, a general plot, and a likeable character. And I'm enjoying it, which is more than I could say about Project Demo.
Hopefully by the end of the week I'll reach 5000 words. Not bad for starting something new this Monday. It's not NaNo pace, but it's perfect NoGuilt-o pace.
How are your projects (NaNo or otherwise) coming along?
