wordswag_15073188796611453091488.pngWeekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from November 3rd at 7am (Pacific Time) through November 6th at 7pm (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!

Hey!

Good to see you again. I will admit, I may be a little distracted… and a little tired. I went to the Midnight NaNoWriMo (NaNoWriMo.org) kick-off in my area on Wednesday morning — and am beginning to think I can’t manage the 2 am mornings anymore. Spent Wednesday sleeping, getting a massage, chatting with a friend, and writing some more — and much of Thursday (though I had to go to work) was spent in a bit of a zombie trance.

This weekend is more of the same — I’m trying to get far ahead of my word count goal for NaNo, in part because I like being ahead of the game, but also because I am still trying to write my way to the story, and I know it will actually get easier the more I figure out my character and story. Since I approached this year with no planning, I am writing my way to a story — and it’s been a slow slog through the first 3,000 words. I did finally decide that what I was writing – while necessary for my understanding of characters personalities and such, was boring as hell and had done its duty so jumped forward in the story a bit. Seems to have helped some!

Really, that’s all I’ve got this weekend. Writing, and enjoying the fact that I don’t need to be out in the rain! I am going to venture out to a write-in (when a bunch of us descend on a location and write, while drinking copious amounts of coffee) Saturday afternoon – it’s really nice to be writing in community, and to have such a nice little community to connect to here.
What are you up to this weekend?

  1. How cool to have a writing community, IRL. I went once to a writer’s Meetup, it was a pretty far drive.. People were cool and all, I just never went back. I guess solitude works better for me when I’m trying to focus on constructing something.
