Me = So lame… *rolls eyes*
NOW: I am a Christmas Card Guru! And I’m sending off my contracts.
LATER: Work, then visiting Bruce.
TOMORROW: Work, baking cookies, work, TGIO Party
FRIDAY: Work, cooking for Saturday, work, Shelton with Jake and his Dad (hitting the second hand bookstores and checking out some Christmas stuff)
SATURDAY: Car Show and Winter Social in Olympia
SUNDAY: Write, Write, Write! Finish the novel then setting up some more short story deadlines…
I GOT MY PUBLISHING CONTRACT IN THE MAIL!!! I’M SO EXCITED! WHY CAN’T I STOP YELLING! RAWR!!!!
So NaNoWriMo is almost over (even though it technically is for me already). I’m not sure what to do with myself now, haha. I still have to finish my story, which should only take a few more days. I need a new writing project after I’m finished with it… What do I do now?
I went to the write-in today and made it to 51,383 before I had to leave for dinner with family friends. I was so happy with myself. I wrote 3,364 words in two and a half hours. Everyone at the write-in was awesome. I love writing with them. I hope that we can all keep writing together. I wonder if any of them are going to do Camp NaNoWriMo in the summer. Or maybe Script Frenzy. I suppose I will ask them at the TGIO Party. I brought pumpkin cookies that seemed to go over well tonight at the write in. I’m debating on what kind of cookies I should bake for the TGIO Part-ay…
Woooo! Made 50k at the write-in today!!! I’m so happy!
…written in days. It’s the weirdest feeling. I felt like I was going through withdrawals, haha. I’m just so busy with work… But now I’m back on track. I’ve got 2,448 words left until I hit 50k. I’m so excited. I only wrote a little bit today. I’m thinking about planning the ending a little bit and then finishing it at the write-in on Saturday. Yay! Of course, my story is going to be a bit longer than 50k. I have a second story line that I haven’t been working on (I’ve just been writing the main story). They weave throughout the story and then come together at the end.
- ME: Camp NaNoWriMo runs in June and August and Script Frenzy runs in April! I could do this ALL YEAR LONG!!!
- JAKE: (silence)
- ME: Will you still be my boyfriend?
- JAKE: (silence)
- ME: (silence)
- JAKE: I love you...
- ME: Aw! I love you too!
…just made me realize that I haven’t written anything in about four days. *facepalm* I’m blaming it on my cold and on work. It also made me realize that I’ve written 4k words so far at today’s write-in. Hooray!
I’m only 5k behind where I really want to be. I was hoping to finish the main goal of 50k before conferences started but that’s only, like, a day and a half away. Tonight, after work, I’m hoping to reach at least 45k. Wish me luck!

Doesn’t really help with the “don’t dance in front of your laptop like an idiot, why don’t you just write instead” problem but still…
No, it’s more like, “One ring to distract me from writing…”
P.S. Anyone else feel bad for poor Golem? He’s like those weird tarsiers from the PI. They can’t help being small and funny looking. They just kind of mind their own business until you bother them. Then they get all possessive and bite-y.
So I went to Forza and didn’t see anyone that I recognized and ended up going to Cafe Noir instead. Got coffee, set up and realized that they close at four (in an hour). So at four, Jake and I will head to The Global Bean. Haha. I used to go bar hopping. Looks like it’s turned into cafe hopping…
I didn’t get to go to the write-in today and was crushed. To tell you the truth, I made it out of the house but by the time I was done with errands, I felt so bad that the only thing I wanted to do was go home and sleep. So I went home. And got some coffee. Then wrote 3,560 words. I should have just got some coffee and gone to the write-in (even if there was only an hour left). *sigh* Anywhoo, I’m planning on going to the one tomorrow because I am feeling better now. Yay!
My goal tomorrow is to hit 40k. Woo! And maybe by then I can come up with a different story playlist. So I can stop dancing in front of my laptop and do some writing instead… *playlist fail*
In other news, the last half of next week will be conference “week” which means…10 hour days and quite possibly no writing done by the end of the day. I suppose that’s one of the reasons why I want to get as much done (before Thursday) as I can. Of course, I can catch up on Thanksgiving weekend but still… Why is it that I start off a paragraph fully intending NOT to talk about NaNo and end up…whatever….lol. THE END. Ha…
- So this morning I was having breakfast with the kiddos at the school (we were there for the no-school-day) and this happened:
- Me: You guys have awesome manners...
- 6 Year Old: Mom told me that it's rude to eat with your mouth open.
- Me: That's very true!
- 6 Year Old: And it's just icky...
- Me: And annoying...
- Then I went home and this happened:
- Jake's Mom: (with her mouth open, pulling cereal out of a box in the middle of the living room while we are watching a movie) *crunch crunch*
- Me: *facepalm*
