This NaNo isn't dead yet!

Current NaNoWriMo Wordcount: 35,621
Last Line of Dialogue: "No," was his eventual response. It seemed to hang in the air, and he hated the cold, metallic sound of it. He hated how Snow seemed to grow smaller when she heard it. "I'm sorry," he added.
Last Sentence: The golems stood between him and his cave, and he did not want to risk one following him and cornering him there.

So I hit a massive wall with the story, and would have gone from being 2,000 words ahead to 600 words behind had Ben not bullied, cajoled and bribed me into doing a 25 minute sprint just now. :P Haha. I only needed to write 600 words to meet today's wordcount, but I ended up writing nearly 1,000! My man is pretty awesome, really...

Also I have no idea why "no" would sound metallic. I think I was trying for another word, and failed. But that was 926 words ago so it will have to remain a mystery. :P

Fyi: this is my new NaNo2013 icon. mystereos made it for me yesterday and, quite by accident, not only does the girl resemble Snow (my FMC), but the wolf looks like her dog, too. :P

I am so behind on everything. I feel badly that I haven't done your rewards yet! I'll get them done this weekend. :)

But I like that description of the metallic sounding 'no.' It's very interesting! I can't wait to read more. :)

Aw, don't worry! There's no rush. I still want to make rewards for you, I just can't decide what you'd like, yet. :P

I just love how Ben is so supportive and seems to hit all the right buttons to push you ahead with NaNoWriMo (and now I realize that I don't even know what that stands for).

National Novel Writing Month! :) And yes, I have got myself a pretty good guy (and by 'pretty good' I mean 'incredible beyond words') ... he's still supportive even when I'm in an "I hate everything" grump. :P

My NaNo novel somehow decided to end itself at about 30,000 words. I wish you the best of luck with yours - it seems like you're making awesome progress! :D

Oh no - you should start another (but still include that first 30K in your overall wordcount)! A sequel, maybe? :D
