NaNoWriMo Update -or- How to Slack Off and Still Hang in There

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Lots has been going on over here behind the scenes– more on that later. There’s a ton of fun stuff coming up like a super cool giveaway with other blogs, a new blogging series (which some will enjoy and others will hate), a web serial (again, some love, some hate), and a book announcement. I’m excited for all of these things coming up, and a little nervous, too. You’ll see why. In the meantime, here’s an update on how NaNo is going.

But first: for Christmas, the little sis and I got our noses pierced. Mine isn’t as visible in this photo. Oh well, I’ll take another photo the next time I leave my pajamas. It might be a while.

NaNo Tracker

Day: 13

NaNo Word Count: 13,298 (as of yesterday– I should be at a little over 21k by now)

Total MS Word Count: 39,368

Today’s Goal: 3,000 (Ha! This was my goal the last time I posted an update. Didn’t work out so well)

Nail polish: I wanted to do that super snazzy black with rainbow stripes but have been unsuccessful in finding the rainbow strips. Oh well, maybe later. This didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped. But hey, it was fun to try. As a fan of LSU (Geaux Tigers!), I decided to do a yellow-gold base with a purple crackle top. The purple isn’t exactly LSU purple, but I’m okay with that. 🙂

Base- Excuse Me by Pure Ice (click photo to link to the website for photo credit)

Top- Nicki Minaj Super Bass Shatter BY OPI (click photo to link to the website for photo credit)

The result?

My reward? (redeemable at 15k)

This: Breaking Dawn Part II, Jacob’s Protection by Essence (in honor of the movie’s upcoming premiere) (click photo for link to a really cool website and for photo credit)
