I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year, in honour of my darling smiley - bravesmiley - rosesmiley - loveblush

I wasn't going to do h2g2 NaJoPoMo as well, but then I thought I can at least report on my progress in the other competition, if nothing else. smiley - biggrin

I might not have time to read other people's journals straight away, but I have bookmarked them for future enjoyment - it is fascinating to see what people think of to write about smiley - biggrin

smiley - tea

pauh, still writing

I'm honoring NaNoWriMo in spirit by writing a short novel. I just don't think anything good can come of setting goals in terms of a number of words per day. I prefer to write whatever amount of words will give me the result I want, usually fewer words than NaNoWriMo would require.

Plus, I get to have my dear friends at H2g2 read what I write. I respect them enough to give them the best I can come up with. smiley - love

NaNoWriMo is the ideal venue for the novel I've planned, as the plan is a love story based around my relationship with my darling - I want to write it, but it is somewhat difficult, so the target of writing it in a month is like taking a sticking plaster off quickly, so it hurts but not too badly...

I'm lucky that a lot of our relationship was conducted via e-mail or messenger, so I have enjoyed looking at our first few e-mails today - I'm amazed by how far I have matured since those early days smiley - cool and how much we learned from each other smiley - loveblush - but it is so sad at the same time as I miss her so much... smiley - crysmiley - brave

More than 4000 words done so far, anyway, so that's not bad at all.

I've changed my mind - it's not like taking a sticking plaster off quickly... it's like sticking a plaster on a gaping wound
smiley - crysmiley - wahsmiley - cry

Looking back at how we were, and how much effort we had to put in to establishing the relationship, I love her all the more for putting up with my quirkiness, because she knew she would get the hugs and love she needed if she was patient smiley - loveblush and I got the hugs and love I didn't even know I needed until I met her smiley - loveblushsmiley - rosesmiley - brave

I've only done 500 words today, but my total is over 5,000 already, so that's not too bad - it doesn't matter...

Deb smiley - cheerup

Thank you deb smiley - cuddle

I think I know a bit about your story, so please don't read below if it would upset you, just know that it means a lot to me that you replied here... smiley - tea








Her name was Deb too, and she died this year smiley - cry Bittersweet indeed that our relationship is perfect because it never faded and it is now a capsule in my heart, but it would have been nice for us to have had more time together on earth...

smiley - cuddle I'm so sorry, Sasha, it must still be very raw. What I can tell you is that it does get easier over time, although it never leaves you completely. It's been 8½ years since I lost my husband, and I still say goodnight to him every night.

Deb smiley - cheerup

Sounds like a Nicholas Sparks plot. Hopefully you'll do a better job with the actual writing. smiley - winkeye

Thanks deb - I appreciate that smiley - cuddle It is the thing that the pain means I feel, and I don't want to stop feeling, or forget to feel, but there is a nicer feeling that I do have more often these days, that she's just behind my shoulder and I can't see her, but she's there for me smiley - loveblush and I have great memories to think of too smiley - loveblush

I slept well last night, after exhausting myself yesterday, so I feel calmer today and I didn't stress myself out at work, either, so that's better smiley - tea

I picked a less intense topic for today's NaNoWriMo chapter, so I managed 1,900 words, which is good. Nicholas Sparks plot indeed... I've not read any of his books, or seen any films of the books, so I can't comment on the readability of them, but my book is not necessarily any better as it is rather stream-of-consciousness at the moment smiley - laugh

Fireworks night isn't my favourite day of the year smiley - headhurts but it has been a good crisp autumn day, and the moon was bright too smiley - fullmoon so that's good, and now I'm warm indoors, and safe from loud startling fireworks.

2,000 words done as well smiley - ok so I'm on target and enjoying it more, as I'm not pushing myself too hard, and just enjoying happy memories smiley - loveblush
