NaNoWriMo, the Husband Unit, Day What, and being proud.

So its been 3? 4? 5? days? Oh, it’s only been 3 days? Ohhh dear.

Has the kid eaten? Prince Wall-E gotten any walks? Oh the husband unit made sure of it! YAY! I love the husband unit!

Ok so its only been 3 days since National Novel Writing Month started and I think every night this is the way I am sent to bed (or should have been sent to bed). …

Picture Bernadette as the husband unit and me as Sheldon…. ( yea sex reversal essentially )

Good news is I’m rocking the word count… I’m up to 19,855.

That is of actual story. I have also written various scenes that occur later in the book, because they were there and screaming. LET ME OUT! LET ME OUT!

The bad news…. I didn’t sleep much, and I’m not really where I want to be in the story… or should I say, by the time I got to this point, page number wise, I really wanted to be a little further along.

However, with that, means I have spent more time that I originally planned on other aspects of the story to move the main story along. I’ve brought in other characters that I thought I would just have in the background, and let them have their own story included. Whether they survive the series, I don’t know yet, but the character development for one particular, really has me guessing and wondering what I can do with him later.

I’m actually really proud of myself. In not rushing to get to the point I thought I should have been by now, I have also help cement the fact that my Heroine isn’t dependent upon her male counterpart. like other females have been in so many other stories. She is stronger and better WITH him, but without him, she is still strong, kick ass, and able to conquer whatever they throw at her.  To be powerful and strong in her own rite.

This is really important to me. I don’t want her to be the boo whoo, he’s gone, my life is decimated without him at my side, and I can’t wait for him to return. No. Megan misses him, but she won’t let it control her life.

Ok, that’s enough teasers and blabbering. I think I’m done for the weekend.

So whatcha thinking?
