  1. I had the same issue, once, but in reverse. I had written a huge novel on characters who were teens. I had a hell of a time writing the sequel until I realized I was trying to fit teens into an adult world. Reconfiguring characters for different stages in their life can be surprisingly tough, so you have my empathy!
  2. Day 1 11/10/16 Workout 1A Bodyweight Squat: 3 sets of 10 Elevated pushup: 3 sets of 10 (2 at desk level, last at bathroom counter level) Doorway bodyweight Rows: 3 sets of 10 Notes: Tough. Switched to a higher elevation to do the dreaded pushups just so I could complete all three sets. I think I'll stay at counter height for a while. Squats are harder to balance when I don't have a weight on my shoulders. Weird.
  3. I've decided to drop the gym for a few different reasons. I'm going to do the nerd academy, the thing I paid for and then never used.
  4. Ah, well, I would say for the past few days it has been lack of writing time. Which I consider a win since I don't have a lack of writing want. I want to write, I'm just being pulled away. There have been years where the time was plentiful and the will was absent. But I keep writing when I can, little snippets here and there as allowed. My schedule is chilling out this weekend and I plan on doing some catch-up. I'm a few thousand words behind of the NaNo timeline, but I think I can make up the lost ground with a bit of sweat, closed doors, and silenced phones.
  5. Ugh! I have spent most of the day catching up. I wasn't feeling so hot the past couple of days and wasn't even close to any sort of word count. I still wrote every day, and since that was my main goal, woo hoo to me! However, I just laid down about 2000 words just to catch up to where I should be. Thank goodness for showers. I was coming to a place that I needed to be but couldn't figure out how to get there. Then boom! One shower later and I've got the transition figured out while offering more insight into a character and a culture. I swear, if I wasn't in a drought-stricken stat
  6. WOW! That is really awesome! I've got about a 1/3 of your total right now. I'm thinking you are right on it being your year!
  7. So, I'm just gonna go ahead and pre-order all your books now, ok? I'm seeing so many excellent ideas for books. I can't wait to read them, so you better make sure you finish! Little encouragement: don't make me all
  8. Your novel sounds very exciting!
  9. Yep, I totally see something like that as an amazing play. I've been to one write-in but it was pretty meh for me. It was a clique of people and a couple of outsiders, so it made things a little awkward. But this year our area has a lady who works in the local library setting up write-ins every Sunday. I think I'll try it. How'd yours go? Think you'll go to another? Get many words?
  10. Your story sounds engrossing and intense!
  11. I'd never heard of it before so I looked it up. They're offering for free for the month of November so if it interests you, I say go for it! What about it makes it look cool to you and why would it not be cool after November? (Just trying to help you brainstorm. )
  12. Oh, boy, I hear ya! I have switched which story I was going to write at least five times already. I made a book cover and that has stopped me from wanting to change. Ok, I still think about writing another story, but I have committed to this one since I made the cover and I put those other stories right out of my head for like an hour or even more! It's tough. I feel your worry.
  13. Your story sounds absolutely fascinating! I hope I get to read it some day. Or, I imagine, it could become a play.
  14. I'm LdDurham on the site. I'll look you up!
  15. Hello, everyone. This is my first accountabilibuddy group and I hope I do right by you all. It's not, however, my first NaNoWriMo. I've done it several times, and have yet to win. I did win at Camp once, though. 1) What excites you the most about NaNoWriMo this year? What has you the most worried? I am most excited just to write. I've made a promise to myself that I'm just going to do it. No whining about motivation or inspiration. I'm going to use this to teach myself to write like its a job and to push through all the little things that would normally stall me. That's wh
