Insecure Writers Support Group
Ooops! Nearly forgot! But what with all the 'stuff' (all the descriptive words in the English dictionary and I use 'stuff' .....hmmmm, oh well!) going on in November, plus Ella's birthday on the 2nd, illness and governor work I don't know where November went!
Oh wait, yes I do, NaNoWriMo! Well I started like a greyhound and ended like a tortoise because all that blessed stuff got in the way towards the end so didn't make anywhere near 50k. But still, pleased with what I did accomplish, really helped me focus. And I found I love the Scrivener software, so although I won't be getting the 50% discount for completing NaNo, I still think it's worth the money - $32, which is around £20. Well worth it :) Do I get a further discount do you think for extolling their wonderfulness?
I of course haven't yet edited what I did write - could turn out that out of the 24612 words I did write, only 612, or worse, 12, will actually be any good! Will leave that unravelling for another day.
So congrats to everyone whether you wrote 1 word or 50,000, that's more than you started with :) Right off to pay for Scrivener while I remember and jump the shark - sorry, jump some blogs!
Regarding that, just an observation from the past few months, but has anyone noticed how many people actually pop in? I have noticed that nearly all are either the helpers, or bloggers returning my visit. Not sure how many people are doing the blog hopping much, which seems wrong. It's like not really supporting, more sitting back and expecting others to run around after you? Last months comments were nice, but they came from the facebook group. Whinge over, it's been bugging me for a couple of months.
