NanoWriMo Report

Yes, I'm still writing my "Artemisia novel" for NanWriMo. It's not the most epic writing ever, but the idea is to get to the 50,000 word mark by November 30th. Truth be told, I may not make it. It's harder than you think to write an average of 1500 words or so a day. I can't seem to get past 500 and some days I'm too tired or unmotivated to put anything down. But I'm still working at it. At the very least this will give me enough time away from my Themistocles novel to go back and look at it with fresh eyes.

Speaking of novels on Ancient Greece, I've also finally gotten around to ordering The Pericles Commission off of Amazon! I and am super excited to read it because very few fiction writers write about Ancient Greece with a touch of humor. Not only that, but I've read reviews that exclaim how great Gary Colby is at making readers feel like they're actually in Ancient Athens. Good times!

And finally at some point I have to get around to playing Ghost of Sparta. I'm a huge God of War fan and IGN has given it a very positive review. Nice!

I don't do NaNo- I tend to stick closer to the 500 words a day mark. Life if just too busy for much more than that!

And I loved The Pericles Commission. Happy reading!

How close are you getting? I'm still way off, but making some worthwhile progress anyhow:)

Hi, I'm finally taking time to visit my old blogger friends. Hoping to get back into it now that my classes are finishing. Have only a teeny bit of my novel left to write too. Glad to see you are still diligently at it!
