NaNo is getting near the end, just twelve days to go to the end. I'm well on track to finish, and barring any unforeseen circumstances, I should make the 50,000 words by the end. This week my production will slow to a crawl on Salvation Falls while I fix up Brimstone, but if I can make it to 45,000 words by the end of this week I should be fine.
The edits to Brimstone are coming along pretty good. I have the section I'm submitting to the GH cleaned up and good to go, and my synopsis is written (though I doubt I would call it anywhere near brilliant. Functional would maybe be more appropriate). Now I just need to clean up the rest of the manuscript as best I can. There are changes I want to make, but I think they will have to wait until next month. I won't have time to make those changes throughout the manuscript in just a few short days, and if I want to meet the GH deadline, this has to be off in the mail by Friday.
We did another write-in with the NaNo crew at Starbucks on Saturday. These are a lot of fun and I can't believe how much I get done when I'm there. This last excursion I ended up with 4,100 words, bringing my total to 42,001 words. We're talking about making this a monthly thing even after NaNo is finished.
In other news: I finished my Christmas shopping on Sunday. Yahoo! I will not have to step foot in a mall until well after the Season has ended. Given how much I hate crowds, this can only be a good thing. Also, a little early Christmas present for me - I have preordered Rescue Dawn which comes out on DVD this Tuesday. It should arrive in my mailbox by the 22nd. Ho, ho, ho!
