If you don’t read blogs on Sunday, you didn’t miss much here. But if you want to understand where I’m going on the blog this month, read yesterday’s post. Or this brief synopsis:
For the next 30 days, this blog is going to be a little whacked. Each post will be short and have 2 parts:
1.) an update on NaNoWriMo and 2.) an update on what else is going on in my world.
Wild, I know.
As of 11:59 pm on November 1, I’ve written 2,553 words of my NaNo novel. Ahead of schedule, yes. But I have some stuff planned for November and need to be ahead.
So far, so fun. I have never, ever in my entire life started a book at the very beginning and not skipped around, not even once. And I love making stuff up! All the stuff that runs around in my head–imaginary conversations and stuff–has found a purpose. (or something like that)
So, I came super close to backing out of NaNo. Way too much already on my plate. Didn’t want my family to suffer in any way. Have enough to keep me busy with the Zoo Book and speaking stuff and all that.
Turns out that Mr. Gabe really, really, really wanted me to do it. Strange, I know. He came up with plans for how I could find more time. He suggested ways he could ease my load. Man alive. I’m no dummy. I jumped at the chance. And anytime we’re sitting down together (in the van, over a meal), he wants to discuss plot ideas and what’s going to happen with Carly and Anne (my 2 main characters). I love it.
Feeling better (but not awesome) as far as the sinus pain/pressure goes, but my cough is back with a vengeance. Bah.
We got our kiddos back tonight. Love those little crazies! A huge thank you to my mother-in-law for keeping them for 2 whole days!
Question of the Day: What kind of candy are you most likely to steal from your child’s trick-or-treat stash?
Have a great Monday!
