Well, the first week of Nanowrimo is already half over and I have written a total of *drumroll please*:
I know. This isn’t looking good so far. In my defence, I did sit down and outline the first three chapters Tuesday. But since then, I haven’t had any writing time and the scariest thing of all (and my biggest hurdle to overcome) is that it usually takes me weeks to get down the first chapter (see my post on the first chapter hokey pokey)- it’s where I’m meeting my characters and setting for the first time – setting the foundations and I’m one of those writers who just can’t seem to go on until it’s ‘just right’. Once the first chapter is down though- things usually flow a lot faster. But I’m definitely starting to feel as though I’ve bitten off more than I can chew.
It doesn’t help that I’ve recently discovered (been held hostage by) the Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs. I could eat these books for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. – They remind me a little of the Sookie Stackhouse series but with werewolves and a much less girly protagonist.
Now on to a little bloffee. I could use at least two cups this morning.
All you need to participate in our usual Friday Morning Follower’s Bloffee is:
2. Tell me what you’ve brought for morning bloffee. (Today I have black coffee with sugar and some 'pains au chocolats' already laid out.)
3. Click on someone you don’t know in the comments section and check out their blog! Voila- a new friend and potential follower connection has been made!
In the meantime, I should be around later on this morning to respond to comments and visit. Tell me- any recurring themes you noticed in blogland this week? Any ‘finds’ or books you couldn’t put down?
I hope you all have a great weekend!
