Since I'm not following wordcount goals this NaNoWriMo, I thought I should explain what my goals are. That way you can all keep me honest!Essentially, I have 16 major scenes/plot points to hit before Thieves is done. Therefore, I must complete one scene/plot point every 2 days (at least). Since earlier means fresher, I've got 2 that I have to finish in the first 3 days so I can fit them all in.
I bought a big(ish) whiteboard/corkboard to keep track of all of this, and make sure my goals are right in front of my face.
Here it is: (btw, don't try to read the cards if you don't want spoilers!)
So far, I'm on track! Yay! And incidentally, just under the Nano official wordcount goal, so who knows - maybe I will hit 50,000!
In other news, this has been a week of organization. There are whiteboards everywhere :). I even got a little crafty and did my jewelry too:
They're just wooden cross-stitch frames, with lace pulled over the inner hoop. That way I could hang my earrings and pins directly on the lace. I had to glue cork to the inner hoop in order to attach my bracelets and necklaces with pushpins. Simple, and hopefully more usable than my previous stack of little cases.
And last, in case you see me around in the next month, I've got a walking boot on.
Turns out I've been walking on my feet too much. Or something. So now I've got to wear this boot thing and not walk around so much, at least until it heals. Ugh. Though on the good side, maybe boredom will force me to be more productive on the Nano front... especially since I've also canceled my Netflix for the month.
