16036/50000 - 32% (more than a quarter! Woohoo!)


Haven't gotten back to my eBays or my my letters, but I did write about 6000 words. According to my NaNo page, at this rate I will be finishing my NaNo by Nov. 23rd. I'd like to finish on the 21st, during the So Cal Write-a-Thon. I want a bell, demmit! :D That would be pretty sweet. I want to be at 25k by the end of the 8th. That's my goal for right now. I have a lot I need to be writing today that isn't related to NaNo. I need to get back to my Maisel classes because last week I've been very neglectful. I need to catch up. I'll be doing my write-ups tomorrow in addition to my nine thousand or so words. I may even get a few more words in before I head to bed.

I have two more write-ins this week. The Monday one will be at CK and the Tuesday one is at the LA Library. I really love the people at both. I can't wait to see the folks in LA, especially because I was having a wonderful conversation with this woman who is passionate about the homeless in LA. She herself has been homeless and she is now an advocate. Based on what she has said so far, it sounds like her life has gotten turned upside down for the good in the last month. She uses Twitter as a way of expressing herself. It is an important tool to people who did not have a voice before. I find this extraordinary. I know Twitter is an important connecting tool, but there are ways it is being used that I hadn't even thought about.

I have put a lot of my other projects on the burner. There is a project that I am collaborating on with a painter. I did a lot of the writing of the proposal and guess what! We got accepted! They don't know when we will exhibit, as they are using the open store-fronts and they will be given out to artists as they come available. I guess this is something for 2011, though, which I am grateful for that because I am going to be very busy from now until the end of 2010. After NaNo, I want to get to doing some more incredible amounts of writing.

I need to buckle down on my writing and my walking.

This is where I am for my words and steps for the year:

Words: 78,789/250,000 (this is through October; I am not including my NaNo words yet)


Steps: 690,000/1,000,000 (690k is 345 miles! Wowza! o.o This is about 40 miles shy of the driving distance between Los Angeles and San Francisco.)

Words: I am going to have to average 85,606 words in November and December to reach 250k (That's 3722 words a day in November and 2762 words a day in December. This is do-able)

Steps: I am going to have to average 155,000 steps in November and December to reach 1 million steps (this is 6,740 steps a day in November and 5,000 steps a day in December. Kind of do-able)

I am trying to ascribe to the every little bit counts method and it seems to be working.

Oops. I didn't even mention the write-in today. I got a visit by the MLs! It was us, two people who had gone to the kick off and a woman from Cal Poly. I was very excited to see that the turn out was okay because at first I thought it would just be me and the MLs. I think I am going to get to CK much earlier on Sundays so I can get a better table. We were spread out and that kind of sucked.

I also have been squandering a lot of time on Bejeweled and Words With Friends on my iPod Touch. And some fun on Fruit Ninja too. But balancing is good, especially when things get done. I am quite pleased. I would like to get that e-Bay stuff done, especially before the 10th when things are free to post.
