    Harder to schedule around things this month. I will try to do the 10K one of the days this month. Missed the last one.

    I’ll be here at least one of these days. I don’t know what I’ll be writing, but I’ve got outlines, and I’m not afraid to use them. LOL

      LOL! Lois, I can see that steely glint in your eye. β€œGo ahead, make my 10K Day.”

        Hahaha! Now that you mention it… πŸ˜‰

        I’m thinking of writing the backgrounds of the characters for my fantasy story. I outlined them back before November, but never got around to writing them when I came up with a new idea. LOL!

        By the way, you asked what my total word count was for those three 10K Days I had in a row, but I never answered because somehow I missed it. My total was 31,215. Not bad, huh? πŸ™‚

          Lois, that ROCKS! 31K+. I think I’ll have to put you in the FoW Hall of Fame. πŸ™‚

          Your idea to journal your characters for the 10K Day is inspiring. I haven’t decided yet what to work on. I have three screenplay treatments that will hopefully become screenplays. Maybe I should do some character journaling as well. I did that for my first screenplay and it was very helpful.

            Cool! πŸ˜€

            See, I came up with this idea for a Dungeons & Dragons type of story. I have about five main characters, plus two others. I came up with story ideas for them and then wrote outlines. Each was going to be a shorter story, and I’m hoping to come up with an epic tale in which all seven characters will star. Right now, though, I have to write the shorter stories so I can get a good feel for them. πŸ™‚

            Who knows? Maybe I’ll turn these into screenplays, too! πŸ˜‰

            I never wrote any character journals for my Nano Novel, but I think I might do that too, at some point.

    Again, depending on my little bundle of joy, I shall try to be with you all for the 10K Day on the 18th! Of course, if he decides to bless us with his presence before Christmas, all bets are off! LOL

      Jenn, fantastic that you’ll try to be here. When is your official “according to the doctors” due date?

        Official due date is January 5th, but because I am “high risk” they want to induce me at least a week early. But I’ve also been feeling some contractions lately, so JD may just decide to make an appearance on his own time! Lord knows he already does what he wants when he wants! LOL

    I’m here at least one day. I’m working on an outline and my book project notebook. I have a few more entries to complete before shelving it until January/February.

    I’ll be there! This is great because I can make sure everything from Nano is polished and ready to be finished off. I have to rewrite the final chapters because I decided it needs to end a different way, but with a Feb. release date, this has to be done by the end of the month.

    Thanks bunches for hosting these, Milli! πŸ™‚

    I’ll join in for both! Either will work on one of my unfinished novels or write some short pieces πŸ™‚

    I hope to join you for both days again – though Xmas stuff might get in the way of the Saturday date (bear in mind that the only Xmas prep I’ve done so far is to buy cards!). πŸ™‚

    It’s been too long, Millie! I’ll be in on the 18th. I’ve got two books in-process, so I’ll spend a little time this week figuring out where I want to do the most work.

    Looking forward to it…as always.
