Nanowrimo Update: Google Searches

I'm still writing! Are you impressed? It's been pretty hard at some spots. I truly have no idea where I want this story to go, I mean,  a little idea, but I can't figure out how to get there. And I'm to the point now where I need to start getting there, so it's a little weird right now. But still fun. I really am anxious to just get this over with though, so I can go back and add and fix and figure stuff out. They say that's what December is for.

Yeah, right. Maybe I'll try for January on that.

One of the most interesting parts of writing is learning all the stuff you don't know. And then using our lovely Google to figure it out. Kathy from Read This Instead shared some of her searches with you this week. And I've seem some fun Nanowrimo forums where people go on and on with the interesting things they are looking up. So I thought I'd join the party list a few of my searches for you too.

Things I've been learning about:

  • pink cowboy boots
  • horse riding terms
  • poisonous pipe smoke
  • the Navajo skinwalker legend
  • Native American stories for the constellations
  • marriage and relationships among cousins
  • the Homestead Act
  • the history of Memorial Day
  • The Witchery Way
  • Paul Revere and the Raiders
  • usage of the term "pertnear"
Fun stuff, yes? I hope to make that list even more interesting before it's over! One week left! I can do this!


  1. I have the same problem as you usually. I know where I want to end but I have a hard time figuring out how to get there (that is why most of my stories are unfinished). One tip I heard was to write the ending you want and work your way backwards. Good luck! You can do it!!

  2. The more I hear about your story the more I want to read it! :) I've never heard of a few of those things, so I'm even more curious.
    We're almost there!!!

  3. Ha! You have got me intrigued about what you are writing about with all those google searches!!

    My writing is still very slow. I came down with an awful cold last week and ended up sleeping a lot instead of writing. My word count is still low, but I feel that I am now more invested in my story.

    If a fly were on my wall, I think they would see these google searches for me (in very general terms): the meaning of names, orphanages, and psychiatric disorders (because all my texts are packed away in a box somewhere and I can't remember details like I used to).
