#$10novel – day 12 – Smack!

Jeesh. I just wrote 3400 words between 9:30 and Midnight. Whew.

Loreen, i take my money back. So there. 😛

But you get a dradle!

ACT II is in full on emo mode. I’m going to have to find ways to lighten it up a little. I also think i need to find some time to do some plotting cause i’m running out of plot fast.

Anyway, tired. Going to bed.


$10novel – day 12

Today is yet another day where nearly every second is accounted for. Mostly for things i’m not all that excited about. Going to try to get some writing done as soon as i send this.

ACT II, i is in it. From now on, things are going to get harder and harder as i diverge away from my original outline. Anyway…

Today’s contestant: Loreen Heneghan, who can kill men with a thought.

I have to reach 53,000 words before i go to bed tonight, or i’ll owe Loreen ten bucks, which she will no doubt spend on debauchery, scams and intrigue. She must be stopped!

Novelburns Update:

The burns continue to spread like a virus. I started to dye my hair today and decided to throw some dye on them. They REALLY stand out now.

What you looking so smug about, dork boy?

What you looking so smug about, dork boy?

I’ll hopefully dye them bright purple next.

Body Update:

Hoping to get some exercise in today, but it’s not feeling likely. Had raw food for breakfast, so that feels pretty good. We’ll see about the rest.


#$10novel – day 11 – SNORT!

Dammit. I made myself cry again.

The end of ACT I is kind of intense for me. I guess i forgot.

Anyway, i’m on page 257, (50,243 words in.)

ACT I is done. Whew.

No $10 for Emily, so she doesn’t have to feel guilty. 😛

Instead, Emily gets a dragon of awesome!

Novel Excerpt:

     Ras took Joyce’s hand, squeezed it and turned to go, But he pulled her back, leaned in close to her ear. He whispered but she heard him perfectly through the cacophonous noise. “My dear, thank you so much for what you do for me tonight. May all your dreams come true.”
     She leaned away, didn’t know what to say, so she just smiled and made her way to the stage.
     Backstage was almost as loud as the club. She and Beth and Brian wove their way in to the dark wings. Beth and Brian set down their bags sort through their juggling gear.
     The lights flared and Beth saw a man in a side room, sitting in a wheelchair staring at the floor. He looked sad.
     She wanted to go to him but was distracted when the band finished their song. The crowd swelled to a deafening roar.

Next up: Loreen Heneghan

P.S. –

Body Update:

Food: Raw and Vegan, plus juice
DDR: 0 songs
Bike: 40 mins

#$10novel – day 11

Morning has broken, like the first blah blah blah…

Getting ACT I done today, doing it!

Today’s contestant: The deadly and talented Emily Mangan.

From what i know of Em, she’ll just feeling guilty if i give her $10, so i guess i have to try harder just so as to not add to her emotional burden. 😛

Novelburns Update:

I’m seriously considering dying the novelburns purple. Pictures forthcoming.

Body Update:

One thing about trying to get the %$#@!& writing done every day, and just plain being slammed with other work, is i am NEVER EXERCISING and am EATING REALLY BADLY. Just generally feeling fat and gross. So…

This is not part of the challenge, but i want to be aware of my eating and exercise, so as part of this whole thing, i’m going to use these blog entries to track them. Pretty much the only formal exercise i do is Bike, Walk, DDR, Push-ups and Ab exercises, so maybe i’ll just track the numbers on those. So far today i have:

Food: Raw Fruit – DDR: 0 songs – Bike: 0 mins – Walk: 0 blocks – Push-ups: 0 – Abs: 0 mins

#$10novel – day 10 – SPLOOM!

Another $10 saved! 47,2367 words in and i’m planning to keep writing. Literally on the edge of ACT I, can look over and see ACT II below me, full of doom and bad plotting. Yikes!

Kishi, thanks for playing, please accept this picture of a power cord as a parting gift:

Tomorrow: The sneaky and deadly Emily Mangan tries to steal my $10 through various trickery and distraction. 50,000 words may be a difficult point in the novel, and yes, ACT II looks very scary, but i will triumph!
