Two More to Weave: NaNoROW Update 11/27/13

Curious? Click the icon!

Just a quick update tonight – I’m running late with this, I have scenes to read and to write, and I’m tired…

I have two scenes left to complete my NaNoWriMo novel, King of Shreds and Patches!

Both of these are Spock scenes – the resolution and the epilog.

I mentioned on Sunday that I haven’t been satisfied with the way my previous WIPs have ended. Thanks to Rock Your Plot, my plan for this novel has given me a new way of seeing them, and the three resolution scenes I’ve written thus far are much better than any others I’ve written.

And now I get to spend the rest of the novel with Spock….something to be extra happy about, this Thanksgiving.

I project I will complete the novel before Saturday. So, for Sunday, I will be posting just a few thread-raveling goals to carry me through the rest of the round. The balance of the goals will be evaluated, and some will be moved to Round 1 of 2014.

Whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, Thanksgivukkah, or just a regular Thursday, may you find delight today and everyday!

Scribbler’s Candy!

Writing:

Focus points:

  • NaNo Planning

  • NaNo drafting

King of Shreds and Patches – Complete ~ 100,000 word draft during NaNoWriMo 2013. On target.

  • Completed Scenes: 58/60. Two to go! =)

  • Word Count: 116,512/ ~100,000. (Word count goal exceeded!)

  • Completed Chapters: 15/17; Chapter 16 in progress.

And to wrap up the prepping phase:

Chart vital stats for each scene: (the old whowhatwherewhenwhyhow). Target attained!

  • 60/60 scenes completed!

Set up scenes in Scrivener. Target attained!

  • 60/60 scenes set up!

Double check all notes and prep for consistency. Target attained!

  • 60/60 scenes completed!

  • Made some changes to the plan; and I’ve found one very minor inconsistency (what month it is on Earth), that can be easily resolved. No huge plot holes to deal with!

Putting words together…

Hometending:

Focus point:

  • Tidying and beautifying my physical, virtual, and interior spaces.

Although it’s not listed, I have done a fair amount of general hometending, in various spaces, throughout this session.

Lifetending:

Focus points:

  • Relationships.

  • Exercise and Movement.

  • Passions.

Make time and sweetness for Jim, in ways that are meaningful to us both, and in ways that are important to him. Target attained!

  • Romance, more attention to smoothing my nighttime activities while he sleeps.

Do the same for the children, individually and together. Target attained!

  • Time, conversation, snuggles, helping with purchases. I also had a not-so-sweet time of losing my temper. I’m grateful that this happens less and less over time, and is shorter lived. I made tangible apologies to both children for my poor behavior.

Immerse myself in writing, living, and being with my family, striving for presence. Target attained!

  • Yes. Hometending, family time, writing, and outings blended together well.

Regularly evaluate; adjust as needed. Target attained!

  • I need to adjust some things in my perception of clutter. I am considering some organizational changes and repurposing of furniture to help with the problem.

  • Jim came home on Tuesday with a reconditioned washer to replace the one that’s been limping along. This one is high-capacity and computerizes – FANCY!!!

  • Now everyone wants to do laundry, but only I seem to want to put it away – I did about four loads today, and there are three more in various states of completion.

Practice movement daily, for at least a few minutes. Target attained!

  • Moderate hometending.

Tend sponsor duties promptly. Target attained!

Words….lovely words!
