It is nearly 10 A.M. and I’ve yet to start on my novel today, so I’m not expecting a big word count. Yesterday I managed to get 4, 235 words written, though, for a grand total of 25, 959. That means I am already past the halfway mark of NaNoWriMo‘s goal of 50,000. I’ve been fretting lately that I don’t have enough tension in my novel yet, so I had a talk with my characters yesterday, and they agreed to shake things up a bit. One wasn’t too happy about it, though, because it sort of will make him a bad guy. Well, maybe more of a troubled soul who does a bad thing.
I wanted to touch base with you today, but I don’t have time to write a thoughtful blog, so I’ll leave you with a few other pictures for this week’s picture challenge.
I love the photo of the rabbit scampering off. How did you catch that? Really cool glimpse at nature.
It was unintentional, Leah. I tried to snap a picture while he was just sitting on my front walk, but he took off just as I clicked the shutter. Lucky shot, huh!
I went to New York once. I wish I explored it more. So much beautiful places to see. Thanks for sharing these stunning photos. Atleast I get to see N.Y. through your images once more.
New York holds so many fabulous opportunities for photographs, IT. I’m glad you got to see it in person. Maybe you’ll return one day.
Love your “windows” photos… so much talent! Keep at the words. You are fabulous at that too and I hope to meet all your characters too. Dor
Thanks, Dor. I hope you get to meet them some day, too!
I love the bunny – who wouldn’t. Sounds like your novel is really taking off Susan – very impressive.
Thanks, HG. I think the bunny is one of my favorite pictures. I love how his feet are the only thing that is in focus.
Hey, you’re doing great! Those characters must be cooperating somewhat. 😉 Enjoyed the window pictures, especially the cafe shot.
Thanks, Mama. Yes, the characters have a lot more to say and are a little bit flustered because I’m the one who is running out of steam.
oo…so many styles of windows in Times Square.
Yes, Georgette. I love the statue of George M. Always reminds me of the movie with James Cagney.
You are moving fast! I got to 18,000 words today. My eyes are tired, so I think I’ll stop.
Love your window photos. My favorite is the one looking out of the cafe.
Wow, Shary! 18,000! You are on a roll! You should have no trouble getting to 50,000. I’m being very poky today. I’ve been writing for about two hours now (with frequent breaks like this one!) and have only managed to get about 1700 words down. I have a commitment this afternoon, so if I reach 2500 today, I think I should be grateful.
Thanks for the bunny! What a lovely chapel. There are a LOT of windows in NYC, and I think that street level cafe window is my favorite–good for people watching.
Thanks, Patti. I love that bunny picture, too. We ate at that little cafe right before we went to see West Side Theater at the Palace Theater. We had a fabulous time. A school friend of my husband’s was in the production and took us on a tour backstage.
Wow–I can’t believe you wrote so many words yesterday! Give yourself a huge pat on the back!
I would, Reeling, except my hands are too tired! And so is my brain. Thanks for the encouragement.
