I went to a local NaNoWriMo get-together on Sunday afternoon. It was held at Sono Caffeine in Norwalk, one of the coffee shops I’d recommended in my blog about where to write one’s novel. I wasn’t sure how I’d recognize the people, but I spotted one young woman whose face looked familiar from her Facebook…

Finally made it back to Connecticut, with some writing done in airports and planes. So, on Tuesday I think I wrote 2245 words and today I managed 2453, so that makes a grand total of 15465, although I admit some of those words say things like RESEARCH and CONTINUITY? Never mind – it’s all progress.But…

I barely wrote anything yesterday¬† – around 500 words. Elephants take up a lot of time when you’re learning to ride them bareback… To make up for it, I wrote 1433 words today for a total of 13,123. That means I’m over a quarter of the way through in 7 days, but I’m using up…

Well, so far this is kind of fun. I started writing this morning at Saigon Airport (a fabulous place by the way, and brand new). I continued this afternoon at our hotel in Bangkok. Yes, there’s some flooding, but really, we’re OK. It’s tough for the inhabitants, though.     I wrote 2081 words today,…

Well, I managed 3700 words, most of them while riding a tourist bus in Vietnam. It was a 3 hour drive from Saigon to the Cu Chi Tunnels (Google it…) and back, so I sat in the back and typed. I feel I’m going to need a head start because life will happen when I…
