Quick NaNoWriMo update!

amwriting 1

My opening week didnโ€™t go as planned hence the reason why I donโ€™t do the math and use any type of goal count.

The first 4 days:

Day 1 โ€“ 560 words

Day 2 โ€“ 143 words

Day 3 โ€“ 0 words

Day 4 โ€“ 312 words

Day 5 โ€“ 0 words

That gives me a total of 1,015 words.

Today is the sixth day, but I don’t know if I’ll get any writing done.

On the upside, I have my synopsis downpat and I am ready to put in some heavy writing this weekend therefore I wonโ€™t be on, but I have a few posts scheduled. Have a caffeinated weekend and donโ€™t ever think about giving up on your writing simply because you donโ€™t have 10,000 words as yet or your friend is almost at the 30,000 word mark and you feel like a failure. Stay on course and focus.

In the meantime, this gone be me when closing time reach today at work:

Creating the La Petit Muse signature banner

I’ve always wanted to create a signature banner for the blog and although I don’t have a proper theme in mind right now, I wanted inspiring words and I came up with this:

This is the signature that I’ll be using at the end of inspiring posts until I can come up with something … dare I say better? I used my ultimate favorite editor, Pixlr, to create this signature. I used their inspiration sticker (Dream. Believe. Do. Repeat), but the pencil is a free clipart that I had to download and then add to the white background I started off with.

I chose the colors, orange and green because of the current theme of La Petit Muse.

I also made this one while playing around …

… but in the end I decided the colors didn’t coordinate.
