    Not bad considering I've only seen a few minutes of Mulan!
    Congratulations on nailing NaNo. Yeah, it's massive, but it really gets you into the writing groove.

    Well done on your NaNo achievement! I participate every year, and tend to write every day unless other commitments prevent it. I work full time so my evenings and weekends are when I write. I tend to be more motivated during the week than on weekends though (I slack off on weekends). But it helps that I don't have kids or anyone like that to worry about at home – I live alone. 😀

      Thanks Trisha! It was really exciting! =) My poor husband almost went crazy. That last weekend he was bringing me coffee and M&Ms so I could stick with it, lol. Yea, I know what you mean. I work days also. That's funny that you are motivated during the week though, I feel like I got motivated on the weekends to do bigger spurts. Thanks for sharing your experience. I would love to make mine more routine next year rather than off bursts at a time.

    Great job on your NaNo finish. I've never done Nano but I've done a few challenges. I have to stay up with my daily count – if I fall behind, I'm lost.

      I tried it last year two, and was done after like the first couple days. Yea, falling behind made it tough. I played a lot of catch up in the last few days, but there were a couple times I was kicking myself for the procrastination. 🙂

    Mushu fighting with Abu? Priceless!

    Also, congrats about NaNo! I've participated in the past, but don't anymore since I no longer write novels. It was always so challenging, so go you for tackling it!

      Haha, I thought so too. Can't you just see them butting heads and bickering? I think it fits well 🙂

      Thanks about NaNoWriMo. I'm definitely on a big high now. So excited! I appreciate the kind words and am excited about the second book in this series coming to life. Fun stuff =)

    Congrats on NaNo, especially since you jumped in late. I find fast drafting to be a huge rush. You just get swept up in the story and before you know it, you're finished. 🙂
