Trying Out An iPad Post

Isn't modern technology brilliant!

Sitting in bed, posting this from my iPad.....it makes me realise there are no references to modern technology in my recent Nano novel, apart from my MC checking her phone for an e mail.

Definitely something to consider in the re-write ;)

Finished!!!!!! :o)

Yep, that's right, 50000 words in 28 days :o)

At one point it was looking very dodgy lol, probably
because I'd made life harder for myself by actually
wanting to have an ending at 50000 words. I didn't
want to end up in the position I was last year ;o)

Sooooo, what now? Spell check? Re-write, editing......
but not quite yet eh.....I need a break! ;o)

Past The Half Way Mark

Well, I'm up to 35110 on my Nano novel. I guess I should be pleased, but, I dunno, I'm just not feeling it this time lol..... I guess the subject matter I'm writing about is a bit too close to home for comfort lol and trying to juggle 1667 words a day whilst trying to do a creative writing course with an assignment due on the 20th December was never going to be a good idea was it? Lol

My husband thinks that this Nano novel is better than last years but I'm not convinced. Last I wrote 65,000 words from the omniscient POV. I didn't mean to, I didn't intend to, it was the first thing I'd written since leaving school, I didn't even know it was omniscient until I started learning about creative writing lol...... This current Nano is 100% 3rd person. Everything that happens is only seen from the main characters POV, you don't know whats going on anywhere else, and I'm not sure I like it. Have I changed my style of writing because I now know more about the right and wrong ways to do it?
