20131110 ROW80 Check-in


Dr. Wicked is your friend. Yes, I must credit Dr. Wicked’s Write or Die software for getting me to my goal for the week for words written. And I discovered that it’s easy to reach 1,000 words in less than an hour if you know the words you want to write. Otherwise, not so much.

My youngest daughter was horrified by the very concept of Write or Die. Especially when I told her about the kamikaze option that will unwrite your words if you don’t keep up the pace. But I haven’t got the guts to try that option because I don’t want to wind up in tears.

If you are participating in NaNoWriMo, you have my best wishes for your success. Tell me how you’re doing.

  1. I love Write or Die too, it really helps keep me focused. But, I don’t have the guts to try kamikaze mode yet either. I’m sitting at a little over 20k right now on my NaNoWriMo project. Great job on the last week and good luck for this week!
