Here we are, entering our third week of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and let’s just say, we’re not setting a blistering pace. It’s been interruption after interruption but, despite all, we have been getting some writing done and taking care of our business responsibilities.
Today, we have a high wind warning and that means more yard cleanup. Last week dumped enough rain that we had flood and mudslide warnings all over the region. Nancy hasn’t had internet or phones since last Wednesday. Hopefully, her service will be able to fix it sometime today. As of her last report, she’s written 5,569 words on our horror novel, tentatively named Area 25.
Anne has been working on Enoch, our thriller. During NaNoWriMo, she’s managed to crank out 10,436 words, bringing the manuscript to 42,751 words. We are shooting for around 80,000 at the finish. Current plan is working on the chapter map. We tend to have detailed chapter maps which speed up the writing process immensely. The beginning and end of this book is fairly detailed but the middle bits are still a bit fuzzy. She hopes to fix that today.
As for business, this week we renewed our Domain name and also renewed our business license with the State of Oregon, thus sealing our resolve to continue for another year. Renewing the business license always feels like it makes it official.
Thanks for sticking with us! We appreciate the support.
Anne, Nancy, and Eric
