NaNoWriMo’s Halfway Point and a Blogging Milestone

Today is Day #15 for NaNoWriMo – the mid point of this month of writing myself bleary-eyed. I’m not one of those fast writers who jots off thousands of words in a single dash. I’m more the plodding type so I’m very content to have trudged my way to 25,018 words today – half way to the official goal. It feels good to be on track. Maybe this year… don’t say it, Carol! Don’t jinx it!


ChickadeeThe other milestone I discovered only as I began this blog entry. It is my 200th post. It seems longer than seventeen months since I wrote “Becoming Visible” as my first tentative step into the public spotlight of cyberspace.  Thank you to each one of you who has persevered with me since then or joined me along the way. I’m enjoying your company in my journey.


Now I think I’ll reward myself by heading off to bed before midnight for a change!

    Sounds like you’re gonna … okay, I won’t say it. 200 posts. Very good. It’s tough to blog consistently. Good Luck.

    • Not saying it is good. No jinxing allowed. 😉 But I’m plugging along. I fear the blogging part is getting short changed this month but regular readers know why and hopefully won’t drop me off their reading radar as a result.

    Congrats on your two milestones. 200 posts is a lot of posts and 25,000 words is a heck of a lot of words. This is terrific!

  8. Thanks, Laura and Shari. I’m pleased to still be making steady progress.

  9. You’re doing great, Carol. I hope you meet your goal. 🙂

  10. Bo’s leaving you a comment too for Tynan. Hey, I bet you’re getting lots of time at your mistress’s feet with her half way through her goal to write that novel! Give her extra licks. She’s earned it! Bo from BodaciousBotheDog.

    • Hey, Bo, thanks for the advice! I’m sittin’ on her feet and keepin’ her trapped at the desk as much as I can. But I like it when she goes for a mug of tea and brings back cookies, ’cause she shares bits with me. She says if I’m good and don’t disturb her to go out too often she’s going to brag about me on her blog, so I’m mostly bein’ real quiet. Tynan (the Labrador)

I'd love to hear from you!
