Wait... wrong fantasy.... But I've got a shiny winner's badge!!!! And my novel had an inherently ridiculous title.  It shall now and forever more (or until I change it) be called: The Novel about Geeks, Chinese Mafia, and One Twitter Ninja. I'm so happy to be basking in my glowing, beautiful,...

Yesterday I estimated in my first blog entry that it would take me one or two more days to finish the 50 000 NaNoWrimo words aka my first novel! I've just did it and let me tell you my fellow writers, that feels fantastic! And that purple bar everyone was talking about? Purple never seemed more...

34,380 words and counting.  Otherwise known as 68.8%.  Otherwise known as "still behind".  Oh yes.

I'm getting close, so close I can taste the victory (and smell the fear). I was checking my Twitter feed this morning and one of my NaNoTwitMo friends (@chicklitgurrl) had a very interesting looking tweet that led to her blog -- which might I say, is sparkly and beautiful and very well written!...

My word count is just under 30,000, and instead of focusing on my work and writing, I'm taking goofy pictures of myself on my laptop.   The sad part is, I'm having way too much fun with it.  Stop procrastinating, Sarah!  Get some work done.

This was the status on my IM profiles in the past three weeks. I am a young Wrimo. I discovered NaNo this year, a week before its official start. It was on a Friday. I was surfing the net hoping to find some creative writing workshop in Austria, Vienna (the city where I am currently living) when I...

Why NaNo?   I drag my butt out of bed at 5:45 every morning... which is the worst time for me because I'm so not a morning person. Yesterday I was completely surly because I had absolutely nothing to write that would make any sense with my story. I let myself be surly for a half hour while I surfed...

I haven't posted here in a while.  I'm a little over 38K right now.  My climax is already over.  I still have a little over 10K to go.  We'll see what happens.
