Well, I am up to 28,163 words. I took a few days off from writing,  during my vacation from work at the inn, to go up north to visit my daughter, which cut into my progress. But all is not likely lost.


Just the other day, my landlord had wireless installed at the house. I have been enjoying this very much, and have been joining in on Word Sprints and Ward Wars on the NaNo Maine facebook group. It has been a lot of fun.


I do not usually join in on these types of things, but thought it might help me get get more words written. A 20 minute stint today netted me 900 words, and a 30 minute one a couple days ago netted me more than 1,000 words. I encourage you all to join your states’ NaNo group and see what they do for fun.


Still writing…

About Shannon L. Buck

Hello. My name is Shannon, and I'm a single mother of two young adult daughters, and Memay to one precious Little Man. I work as a writer from my home in Orono, Maine, and as a Front Desk Agent at an inn. Writing is my life, second only to my daughters. I enjoy writing nonfiction, as well as fiction in a number of genres. At some point, I would like to travel. It would be a true writing adventure.
