NaNoWriMo Day 13: What’s with the Ducks, You Ask?

In the Before Times, rubber ducks were the mascot for Seattle area NaNoWriMo participants. (In case you haven’t heard it rains here a lot, but we like it.) We’d place one in our writing space during NaNoWriMo to identify each other. It was a cool way for participants to meet and commiserate. I carried one on my keychain for years.

For NaNoWriMo 2020, I meet virtually with another writer, sometimes more than one. We chat about our projects. Then we write our stories separately together. It’s something I started up during the summer as inspiration to keep writing.

I ended up hovering around the target number again today, but again didn’t hit the mark.
This weekend, I’m going away for a few days to a house on a beach with a few friends (Don’t worry. We’ve all been tested). I heard that the power is out there thanks to a storm today. Hopefully it will be back on or I’ll be doing NaNoWriMo with pen and paper.

I won’t be doing an update this weekend, but I expect with no family distractions, I’ll be getting a pretty high word count.

Hope you all did well today. Happy Writing!
