Interview and NaNoWriMo Progress

The first week of the National Novel Writing Month is almost complete and I have written about 10k words with another 2k or so to write today. I'm pleased with my progress considering this weekend I attended a Speculative Fiction Writers' Festival, which was brilliant (more on that in a later post).

Today, however, I'm pleased to announce that I'm being interviewed by the lovely E.R. King at Get Busy Writing.

Please, head on over and check it out HERE.

  10. I was fortunate to get 25 k done before my visitor came Sunday a.m. I did another 1000 today. Progress will be slow now for a week I expect ;( Trying to keep on track story-wise is the hardest bit for me.

    Keep going - your steady approach will no doubt win the race :D

  25. Thanks so much for the NaNo congrats. I'm now up to 13k so that makes me happy.

    Thank you too for the wonderful people who popped on over to Emily's blog and read the interview.

    Read, aw, all the best with your pregnancy.

    Shah, oh wow, 26k is huge! Best of luck with the next 24k

    Emily, no, no, YOU are brilliant. Thanks again for the opportunity.

    LC Frost, yep, I can't write on any weekend with my hubby around so I need to work even harder during the week. Best of luck with your progress.

    Carol, yes, the photo is a flower centre. The flower is quite small.

  32. Aaaah, I missed a Spec Fic Writers Festival? Noooo! I've even been up in Sydney for work! You always have the inside track on this stuff--I'm going to have to start bugging you for information. (And yay 10K, but mostly I'm fixating on the spec fic here.)

    ReplyDelete
  33. 10 K words is great, Lynda. Good luck with NaNo.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi Lynda!

    Wow! You're on a roll with NaNo. I've written...nothing. Zilch! But, I have a good excuse: school. I am writing for my writing class but NaNo has definitely taken a back seat this year. Good luck with the word count this year!!

    I'm off to check out your interview.

    Cheers,
    Jen

  35. New follower here. I found you through your great interview. :D

  36. I'm so behind on NaNo. Can I blame college? I blame college.

    ReplyDelete
  37. 12K words for the first week is great progress, right on target for the 50K word finish line. I'm jealous!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Peggy, thanks so much

    J. L. Campbell, yes, I did write more!! I managed to write another 2800 yesterday so that takes me up to 16k now

    Amie, it's a shame you missed it because it was brilliant. It was held at the NSW Writers' Centre. They will likely run another Spec Fic one in two years time.

    Jen, yep, school is a good excuse. At least you are still writing.

    Nisa, welcome!!

    Thanks again to everyone who has taken the time to comment and who have read my interview. You all rock!

  39. Hi Lynda, wow you are unstoppable!

    Congrats on massive wordcount - looking foward to reading the interview :D

  43. Just learned a bit more about you over at 'Get Busy Writing'. Your enthusiasm and positive vibe is contagious! Thanks for stopping by Live to Write. I'm glad to know that someone else posts quotes on the fridge. Another Emily Dickinson quote that I debated posting is: "That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet."

    Love it! I'm glad to know about your blog and look forward to posts! Good luck with NaNo!

  47. Lee, I actually thought I wouldn't be able to keep up with the NaNo goals this year as well. I've been super busy. I hope you are still writing, though, even if it's 200 words a day.

    Sara, welcome to my blog. Yes, I love that quote too, and thanks.

    Tristi, ha, don't feel bad. It costs a lot to send stuff to Australia.

    Thanks again to everyone who commented and checked out the interview. Much appreciated.
