Day Fifteen - The Half Way Point

Day fifteen of thirty and my official word count as of the NanoWriMo website is sitting currently at 26,634 I'm happy with that.

I'm writing this blog entry at about 6:30pm EST as I plan to have the evening off. I just need a bit of Sal time. Time to watch the crazy shit they put on TV of a Sunday night, eat pasta, drink coke and do nothing. Literally nothing!

Life in general is going alright. I'm happy with the progress I have made with my Nano - I'm ahead atm by 1,135 words. It's nice to be ahead. I'm also about to print out a hard copy of the first 15 days. From the outset I thought. Right I'll print it out at 25,000 words which is the halfway point. This will give me a chance to have a read of it, regroup and forge ahead. I've reached both both 25,000 words and ahead by day 15. So I'm feeling good about hitting the print button on my manuscript. I'll leave you once again with a snippet from today's writing.

Heath walked over to the large robot that looked like a very strong man.
‘So what you just hit it? Kinda like a boxing bag?’
‘No, it’s designed to be a training partner, it will attack you, and know when to back off, should you not be responding correctly, or consequently if to tell it to stop! One of these days I think this will replace the soldiers on the front line, but I doubt I’ll ever see it.’
‘Can I have a go?’

That's all I've got.

Yeah, that's Heath's Ninja training. I think I'm on the money with him.

Good on you for being ahead, because if you're not ahead then you're behind. And being behind is overwhelming.
