In the Bookcase


Coming to the end.

Well... November is almost over! I've successfully kept up with my own writing goal this month, to write something every single day. Counting today, there are only 5 days left to this lovely challenging month of scribbling stories.

I've already heard that most of the NaNoWriMo-ers that I know are nearing the end of their 50k aspiration. I'm really not sure how they did it, or found time for it, but apparently it can be done. :-)

So, where am I in this jumbled mess of thousands of words? .:. I've now made it up to 15,600 words. If I get a couple more thousand in for the month, I'd be fully content. I guess we'll find out in just a few more days.

Here is one of my favorite parts of my book:

The ship was a colossal culmination of the most modern Edwardian accomplishments. From bow to stern, the R.M.S. Titanic was a beauty, even Effaline had to agree with the common opinion, and she was not fond of admiring nautical capabilities. This especial morning marked the beginning of an important day in history.

How far have you made it? .:. I'm eager to hear updates from my blog readers. Oh, and feel free to link up your ink-infused posts from this month.

  1. I love your writing, Tarissa! After hearing so much about your current WIP recently, I'm growing more and more excited about reading the full novel one day. :-)

    P.S. I didn't make it very far in my writing month. I won't reveal my word count until the end, because it's a bit poor, if you know what I mean....

  2. *Grins* How unsurprising that your book is about the Titanic! :D And what a great topic, too! I would love to read the full 'book' sometime!

  3. You've done wonderfully with your book this month Tarissa! Hehe, I agree...I'm amazed that writer's can get so much writing completed in a month! Praying the Lord blesses you with a few more great writing days to finish out the month! {hugs}


  4. Your story looks like it's coming along well. Looking forward to reading it one day.

    As for mine I'm thinking that after another several ten thousand words that it can be split into a trilogy. The first would cover the burning of the SS Volturno , the second the Halifax Explosion and the third the main chracter exploits in WWI as a wagoner. But that's still in the planning stages. At least for now Part I & II are pretty much done. My word count is nearly 43,000. It's not much to look at right now and I sincerely dread all the editing it's going to take to get it into a passable story.
