Well, we’re kinduv into the eleventh hour of the eleventh month here… 😉 I’ve got one more Nano Spotlight ready to go for tomorrow, so today I thought I’d ramble about some general Nanowrimo stuff, looking back at the month.
My first year as a Nanowrimo ML. I had a blast, helping plan the Kick-off and taking the lead at write-ins when Gale wasn’t around or wanted to get to writing. When I was in Hamilton, I was racing off to at least 4 write-ins a week, (Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday,) and while in San Francisco, I crashed 3 write-ins in four days, plus the Night of Writing Dangerously. I made some new friends, got to spend time with familiar faces from long ago, and a lot of words done.
My new target for the month is 64,000 – a little less than I made last year. It’s also just over 10k more than the finishing word count of “The Snow Job”, and 10k sounds like a nice number of words for sample chapters, so that’s what I’ll be pushing for with my Missing Gnomes at the write-in tonight and the big Wafflepalooza write-in/party tomorrow!
I think I’m going to leave you with some favorite photos from my trip to San Francisco. The full photoset is up on flickr.
From the Night of Writing Dangerously.
This is the building with the ballroom where the NOWD is held.
My hotel (the building with the mural on it,) from Mason street.
Lori’s Diner, where we had breakfast on Sunday morning.
I wish the Hyatt write-in happened this year.
Schroeder’s, home of the fantastic Saturday Meet and Greet party.
The tea room where they had the ML tea party.
Just some shots from around San Fran, including the Galleria Park, a popular hotel for NOWD-ers every year.
