1000 Words

1000 Words


Today I am thankful for the 1000 words that I wrote of my NaNo story. It’s not the minimum I needed to write to reach 50,000 words in 30 days. In fact, I’m behind. So behind that right now if I keep writing at the pace I am, I will complete my 50,000 words on January 9th. (The handy little stats over at the NaNo website keep me informed on how far behind I am! Thanks, NaNo!) But still, I’m thankful for those 1000 words. It was because of the writer’s block that both Kris and I are suffering from that I asked Kris to take a ride with me to a cemetery as part of my weekend assignment for Photography 101.

Sneak peak of my Photography 101 weekend assignment. Kris and I visit Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery. Something showed up in some of my photos- check out the glowing dot on the headstone on the right.

That 1000 words means that I only have to write 8000 tomorrow to stay on track! (I’m trying to look on the bright side. We’ll see how that works for me!)

So, fellow NaNo participants, how’s it going with you? Are you on track? Do you like what you are writing? (Do you see how I’m procrastinating?)

  1. I’m not doing NaNoWriMo (just the blog one) but I’m in a bit of formatting hell with the journal I’m doing and I am behind in finishing it so I feel your pain a bit. I might do WriMo next year. Is it weird that I love old cemeteries? I remember when I used to visit my grandparents in Massachusetts, I was completely fascinated by the leaning tombstones of people who were born and died before 1900, some before 1800! Maybe I’m just a history buff.


    1. I’ve always been fascinated by cemeteries myself. This one in particular has been a recurring obsession with me. It goes back to the 1860’s, I believe. It’s part of my NaNo story from 3 years ago. 🙂

      NaNoWriMo is pretty intense. In the years I’ve completed it, I have felt such an amazing sense of satisfaction and the years I have not finished, I’ve been so disappointed in myself for not sticking it out. My record is 2-2 right now so I am determined to make this a winning year!
