I made it over the half-way mark on my NaNo novel today!
That's right - I have over 25,000 words (and only a few days to finish about 25,000 more, but trying to think positive).
To celebrate, I came up with the following idea: the Snippet of the Day.
On my NaNo page (username: shellyquade), I will be posting a snippet of my novel which has been written THAT DAY.
Obviously, this is a ploy to attempt to motivate myself to write more every day, so that I have more to choose from. But, if you're bored, or like my writing style on this blog, or bored, you're welcome to check it out.
(I will not be cross-posting snippets to this blog, because I'm paranoid, and don't like the idea of leaving a trail of rough first draft material unless it's a contest entry. Plus, I'm lazy.)
