Well... NaNoWriMo has been in full swing for two and a half days now. So far I have written 3563 words, as far as my goal is concerned I was trying for two thousand words a day, which makes me only (as of yesterday, I haven't gotten a chance to write anything so far today) 437 words behind! Not too much. I could knock that out in 15-25 minutes. So far I'm pretty shocked and pleased with my writing. It's surprising that I have been able to squelch my laziness and internal editor this much to actually do it. Now again, it's okay been two and a half days, so I very well might hit those rough patches, but I hope not!
Today is one of my work days, so I'll be able to get a lot of writing done today. I don't have to do too much at work, so I tend to do quite a bit of... well... editing in the past on one of my WIPs and working on the outline for my NaNoWriMo. Now I can see how much I can write! Woot!
In other news, I've heard back on one of my submissions. I had submitted to an anothology and gotten word back on it by the editor to edit it, so I did that then he said that he would put it in his to be considered further pile, so I waited and now he has said that he likes my poem and would like to publish it in one of his other publications because it doesn't really fit with the anthology too well. So that is pretty exciting as well. This would be my second paying publication.
That's about it for now!
