Unofficial NaNo Update Day 1

Good day yesterday. Passed my word goal by 767.

2767 words total.

And this was around driving around with errands, dealing with calls from kids, a BUNCH of family members, freaking LONG basketball tryouts and catching up half the laundry. Oh and fighting to figure out where I vote now that I moved and then my um, big tantrum, when I realized I got my driver’s license changed and forgot to register to vote in new place!  Voting is extremely important to me, so I can’t believe I screwed up. (Okay, not really a tantrum, but one of those cold, panicky knots in your chest when you get swamped with powerful emotion, so you lose brain function temporarily due to inner tantrum.)

Apparently, the universe isn’t paying attention to my unofficial NaNo. <G>

But I worked through it. That, in a nutshell, is what makes people succeed in this business. Write through it–whatever it is.


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
