NaNoWriMo, Barns and other flammible objects

Okay, so I am roughly 700 words ahead of schedule now, which means I only have about 950 to meet my goal. The writing is going amazingly well, and is probably amazingly bad by the same token. I would be amazed if this storyline is anywhere near publishable. It should probably be punishable.

Still, the story keeps on rolling. Words keep getting put on the page and I am having a good time. I hope to hit 10K by tomorrow morning if I am lucky. I have a feeling this weekend will put me behind again, but if this week has taught me anything it is that playing catch up is kind of fun.

In other news, my wife called on the way to work and the neighbors barn is on fire. It wasn't being used for anything other than storing some old farm equipment, but she met the fire trucks so she is thinking it is an accidental fire and not a purposeful one meant to get rid of an old building. Either that or they are trying to contain it from getting into the dried corn fields.

Have a good day. Until later.

Yikes about the barn fire, yay about the wordcount! The words are coming surprisingly easy for me too, which means I'm writing dreck--but it's fun dreck.

Dreck is amazingly fun to write I have found out. :) Turns out the barn was put down on purpose as well.

Aaron Polson said...

Silly barn. ;)

Glad you both are writing like mad.

Jeremy D Brooks said...

Wow...hope he didn't lose any expensive equipment. That's scary stuff.

Cate Gardner said...

Woot! For the wordcount, and I hope they got the fire under control.

Well, it is bonfire night across the pond. Yikes dude :/

It should probably be punishable.
I love that. Mostly because I feel this way about everything I write when I'm about 10k in. And finished with it.

Maybe the barn can make it into the story ; )

BT said...

Yay team for word count!

A special pom-pom shake just for you!

Rock on, word count.

Hope the barn fire is extinguished soon.

Aaron- Silly barn, indeed.

Jeremy- I don't think mouse nests and ancient horse crap counts.

Cate- It was a smoldering pile of rubble when I went by.

Katey- I am going to cringe when I read this again in 4 months or so.

Nat- I did that to a story once. It was really bad. the story sucked too.

BT- That was an image I didn't need, unless you have pics of it and then I will be happy to post them.

Danielle- Not rockin' as much as you.
