NaNo Progress

This post is going to be short and sweet. I'm writing it on borrowed time, working on two manuscripts at once. I was doing pretty good with my NaNo ms. Got a late start because the kids were out of school for two days, but thanks to some write-ins, I was on my way to catching up. Then life got in the way -- but in a good way. I just received a request for the full of my last manuscript from a query I'd sent out in July (go figure). The problem is, between then and now I had been revising the behemoth in order to get the word count down to a saleable level. Then in October, I started researching for the NaNo book and put the other manuscript aside leaving it in a big, tangled mess. Now I'm trying to clean it up so I can send it out AND keep up with my NaNo word count. Guess this is what it's going to feel like when I have a new book due and revisions for the one before it land on my desk at the same time. Ugh, time management, not my strong suit.

NaNo book: 16,000 words as of 10:45 this morning


  1. Hey, Lori--good luck with the request!

  2. I'm not doing nano and I still feel your pain. Good luck with that request! :)

  3. Wow, how exciting! Good luck with the request. It's more important than NaNo, but I bet "winning" NaNo helps your feelings of accomplishment a lot too.


  4. I wish you well and want you to know you're not alone with the Nano and time management crunch. :)
