Today, I have a few updates for you. Get excited! They are going to be short and sweet, but at least I have a few this time.
We’ll start with NaNoWriMo and my current word count:
As you can see, I definitely slowed down over the weekend. The direction of the story and the voice are right where I want them though, so being a little behind doesn’t bother me. I also have three days off coming up (aka my birthday is on Wednesday, look for a birthday post) and I plan to focus a lot of time on my NaNoWriMo project. I want that chart to sky rocket!
Saturday, I focused on editing, so that slowed down my progress, but okay with that. Like I suggested in my 5 Tips for NaNoWriMo Success post, I have chosen Saturdays to be my set day, per week, for editing. Overall, I am continuing to have a great time writing for NaNoWriMo and that is what counts.
Over the weekend, I also moved a bunch of things out of my storage unit and into my sisters garage, so that took away from my writing time as well. I am in the process of down sizing. Having my possessions at my sisters house is cost efficient and it will be a lot easier to sort through everything that way. The goal is to sell a bunch of items I don’t need. I have already sold a bunch of items! The hustle is strong with this one (corny Star Wars lines will be happening more and more as December gets closer).
Budget wise, I am doing well. Payday came and went, which nearly doubled my liquid funds (check out my 50/50 post if none of that made sense). Wednesday is going to be a big post over the budget and some lifestyle changes. What else do you celebrate on your birthday?! Wait…
I know some of you may be thinking I am just being lazy and not sharing what is going on in my budget. I promise I will share, but, even between now and last week, there were major changes to my plan. I told you I would share my budget, and I promise it is coming.
The plan, news, and full break down are all worth the wait. Trust me, it is going to be good.
If any of you are doing NaNoWriMo, comment with your word count and make me feel like a fool (if you feel comfortable). Or just let me know how you are doing during your NaNoWriMo journey. Either way, I want to know how you guys are doing. Lets support each other!
