NaNoWriMo Day 9- NaNoThon!!!



Yesterday was NaNoWriMo Day 9 and the NaNoThon.

I wrote A LOT yesterday and just so my brain didn’t feel like it was turning to mush, I intermittently worked on some crochet projects and cleaning that I have been meaning to get to for a couple of days now.

I tried to hire house elves… they never showed up.

Anyway. I began Day 9 with 15,459 words.My goal for the day was  15,000 words… so I started a couple hundred ahead.

And then a I wrote and wrote. And did a couple of word sprints with Tracy, then took a break to clean up my craft room and make it a more appropriate writing space (I needed one with less distraction and an actual desk to use), and then I tried a 1k in 30 minutes (and rocked the hell out of it), worked on a crochet project I have been meaning to get to, and wrote some more.

I wrote a total of 4,267 words yesterday.

Which brings my total to 19,726 (yayyyy). I wanted to do another quick sprint or so to bring me up to 20k….

But then the unthinkable happened… my computer wigged out and stopped working. And I did something like this…


Except you know… with a few choice words.Ok I lied…  I basically word-vomited every swear word that came to mind of for about 10 minutes. And then thanked whatever deity I could think of that I have been saving to Google Drive. (whew!!!)

But my wonderfulamazingawesome boyfriend saved the day by running some tests and scans on it and viola! It worked.And I may or may not have done a happy dance that looked something like this. Yeah, I have mad skills (not really).


After that whole debacle. I was so exhausted that I passed out. So I didn’t reach 20k for the day, but at least I saved my novel, my computer and my sanity.

With that, I am ready to begin Day 10 with some fabulous ideas and a hell of a lot of work ahead of me.


Have a fabulous day folks & happy writing!!! I will try to tell you about how Day 10 goes this evening or tomorrow.
