About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Op: National Novel Writing Month

Operation: NaNoWriMo has been underway for 10 days now. I hit 10.1k words on Sunday and abruptly ceased all writing. It is now Thursday. I should be more concerned than I am.

The last time I successfully did NaNo was in ’08. That was a loooong time ago now, all of the sudden. I should be a little rustier at the whole “write every day FOREVER” regimen that is associated with the event. However, on day 1, I wrote my daily writing quota (1,667 words) in 43 minutes.

I have a spectacular Excel sheet that tracks my progress. When I entered my first word count and time update, it told me I would finish on November 16th. HA!

Despite my hiatus from NaNo, I’ve actually found that this novel is coming out a lot smoother than expected. I have a plot. And sideplots! And said plots are working like a well-oiled machine and not a two-legged dog. (Yes, I will shamelessly post references to Homestar Runner like it’s 2003.)
