Day 20 NaNoWriMo – NaNoNearly 3 Weeks!


I will update this post and hopefully the NaNo word count – just writing some as I was getting ready for tonight’s poetry event.

I managed 624 words – which brings me just over the average total for now (33,333) I have 33692 total words – but am hoping to add a few more tonight depending on time and energy if not my catch up will be over the weekend.



Well I have managed another 560 words! I do have to work in the morning and need sleep so I will probably call it a night or just try for 200 or so more (feel the burn)!

34 252 – I made it over 34,000 (I have already made a 35000 picture, that’s an incentive to get there!)


Managed 152 words, am calling it a night. 2013-Participant-Vertical-Banner

Performing Poetry


I have had the pleasure of a 2 hour write after work today, I had planned some NaNoWriMo time… but did some poetry editing for tonight’s set & also attempted a PAD challenge update… I managed a couple of new poems & then decided to find what I could in a box of old notebooks (late 90’s…) – most of which is very angsty or use rhyming couplets that are so contrived and squeezed in, that the message becomes unclear.

I found a couple of good lines & reworked 2 poems. I am at least armed with fresh material for tonight’s open mic!

Caffeine at the ready! Poet 2

PS for any followers of the Oxford mission I have my directions duplicated tonight and approved by organisers!
