It’s time for the Word Wars Blogfest! For the next three days, this blog post will be dedicated to updates while I write my #JuNoWriMo novel. I do not plan on having all 50K words done by the thirteenth, but my personal goal for this live-blogging blogfest is to get through 25K.

Day 1, June 11
6:00 am: I’m still asleep right now, but I’ll be up soon enough.
8:39 am: Awake. Sort of. Time to get some wake up juice and throw something at the kids in hopes that it’s edible. Mornings should be illegal.
8:55 am: Coffee ingested, procrastination on Facebook achieved. TIME FOR WORDS!
10:37 am: Why do I only have 339 words written? An hour and a half and that’s all I’ve got? Guh. Time to plug in the music and refill my coffee.
11:20 am: Just figured out names for a few of my characters thanks to Scrivener’s Name Generator, but I still need one for a Prince. I’m taking suggestions. So far, Rubric is suggested, but need more options. Word count the same.
2:48 pm: Distracted by Tweetdeck hack and Twitter pitch party #SFFpit. Also, lunch for the kids. 1153 words so far today. Could be better, but my prime writing time is later tonight.
5:29 pm: Word count still too low. Getting ready to eat and then back to it. 1653 and counting.
8:34 pm: Food consumed, impromptu visit to sister’s new place done, and van gassed up for tomorrow. Time to word!
12:04 am: Looking for character inspiration totally counts toward wording, right? Calling it a night at 2274. See you in the morning!
Day 2, June 12
11:45 am: Busy morning with no ability to write or update the blog. Boo! But I’m here now and ready to write more words!
1:13 pm: My children have chosen today to be extra loud and rambunctious. Total words written since I sat down today – 15. That’s it. Le sigh.
8:09 pm: Migraines must be catching because I was on the verge of one all day. Thankfully, I was able to go get some medicine for it (along with some awesome chocolates), and I’m starting to feel better! Now, let’s add a couple of zeros after that 15!
11:45 pm: Things are not going well for me. I’ve stared at he screen for hours pulling blanks and then using strike-through on everything I write. So, I’ve opened up a new folder and I’m starting over on a particular scene. Let’s see how this goes…
2:02 am: Bedtime. I’ve gotten another 810 words written today for a total of 825. Let’s hope for better tomorrow!
Day 3, June 13
8:30 am: I’m up. I’m not awake yet, but I’m up.
4:10 pm: I swear, I posted that just a couple of hours ago! Today is going by fast, but it’s not over yet! I’ve gotten 1395 words written so far (YAY!) and more to write tonight! And just so you know, this is probably going to be a loooonnng night.
10:10 pm: I’ve been gone for some long stretches today! Another two or three hour stretch ahead as I get ready to take a break from the computer for a couple hours of DIVERGENT! It’s a necessary evil I’ve got 2467 so far=) I’ll be back in a couple hours to word on!
10:38 pm: Just discovered Divergent isn’t out yet. I swear I’ve seen it on Xbox video, but it’s not out until August 5th. Well, I still need a break from the screen and there are other movies.
12:45 am: (I don’t care that the calendar turned with the clock, it’s still Friday to me!) So, we didn’t watch a movie. We turned on some Supernatural instead. Once I got back on the computer, I did a bit of blog reading (love, love, love Lilith Saintcrow’s blog) and commenting and now, it’s back to words.
2:49 am: Okay. I’m exhausted. After the migraine yesterday (they seriously wear me out), the too few hours of sleep last night, and another long night tonight, I’m calling it. My count for today is at 3742 making MY TOTAL WORD COUNT 6841!
Whoop! *blasts confetti gun*
Sometime in the next couple of days I’ll do a follow-up post.
For now, good night!
