InaDWriMo: Success!


InaDWriMo is over and I can officially say I hit my goal of 20,000 words and then some. I didn't even bother to count because with several fellowship and grant applications in, at about 8000 words each, there was no point. I smashed InaDWriMo!!!!

::bowing to roaring aplauso::

Of course, I'm not really a success because of the special month. It is a recession, I need funding, and the applications just needed to get done. InaDWriMo did get me started though. And setting a monthly goal was a good way to get research done, get reading, and get writing at the same time. Public accountability is the spice of life.

So I'm going to try to keep it going. I'm going to call it Kismet's Push It, because "Push It" is the word I think in my head whenever I want to stop reading what I'm reading and watch Tivo'd re-runs of True Blood instead.

Push it.

Push it I will.

My Push it goal for the month of December--20,000 words again. Several new applications are due the coming months. And same deal as before: follow the progress (or lack of) at Nunez Daughter.

As an aside, I'm going for three blog posts a week here at W2S. I think I leave you guys alone too long. Gotta feed the people.

Feel free to knock on my door and remind me that I owe you goodness: kismetfour[nospam]

And CONGRATULATIONS to K.Iris for finishing the first draft of her novel! She did her own NanoWriMo and didn't even try :) Yay!!!!!!!!!!!
