Just over 50,000 words of pure unadulterated crap. But like I said before, they did not have to be 50,000 good words, just 50,000 words. And I didn’t even resort to just writing the word F*** (sorry mom) over and over again.
in the Nano. I might not die.
I know, I know, where have I been? I have been NaNo-ing and while it is going okay, I find it all very distracting.
I was going to go swimming today after the Princess left for school. I packed my bag, got to the gym, got inside, and realized I did not have my goggles. Why not? Because I had loaned them to The Princess on Sunday. D’oh! I also did not have my shoes, so I couldn’t do anything else either.
Okay, change of plans. I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things we needed. I grabbed a cart did my shopping and got in line. I waited patiently, and then put my things on the conveyor belt at the cashier. Just before she started to ring me up I realized I did not have my wallet. D’oh again!
I came home, got my wallet, and decided to do my shopping at Target instead of Wal-Mart. I like Target better anyway. By then I was hungry, and very stressed out.
The only cure for that is McDonalds. Then, to add insult to injury, the good people in the drive-thru forgot to give me a straw, so I couldn’t even drink my Diet Coke on the way home.
And I firmly believe none of that would have happened if I had been thinking about my day instead of my characters. Two more weeks. I can only hope we all survive.
Nanowrimo is sucking every last word out of me. I don’t have any left for Formula One.
I’m sure my mother is crushed.
…to blog and do the nano at the same time.
I promise to have the Brazilian Grand Prix report ready tomorrow.
Yes it is National Novel Writing Month again. You might have noticed my little word count widget over there on the right. With any luck it will be at 50,000 words by the end of the month.
I can do it. I did it last year. And besides, like I told my sister, they don’t have to be 50,000 good words, just 50,000 words.
