nanowrimo and… (day 3)

Just joining us? Day 1. Day 2. My Birthday Book Bonanza.

NaNoWriMo Update:

As of 11:39 pm on Tuesday, I’ve written 5,418 of my 50,000 words. The words keep flowing. But I’m not so naive that I think it’ll be smooth sailing from here on out. This is the NaNo-moon stage. Like bringing that little 7-pound baby home from the hospital and floating on a cloud while people bring you gifts and cake and do all your chores for you while baby sleeps 23 hours a day.

And then…sha-zam!

Forgive me.  I need sleep.

I kind of left Carly and Anne in a lurch though. I hate to do that to them. (I don’t know how fiction writers do it–start writing about their characters and then try to fall asleep at night) Did I mention that Carly lives in Ohio (original, I know, but I didn’t want to waste time on researching an area I’m unfamiliar with)? And Anne? She lives in Cambodia. No, I haven’t been there. But I have some lovely, real-live resources at my disposal should I need help.

Birthday Book Update:

112 books! And the first 5 are going to a crisis pregnancy center in Estonia! Each book will have a different first name on the From Line: Donna, Emily, Sarah, Rebecca and Amanda. So, if one of those is your name, make sure you’re praying for a gal in Estonia. It’s not too late to donate a book! Just $5!

Fun Election Day Plans:

Our girlies don’t have school tomorrow (they’re using the schools for voting), so my sister-in-law, Jess, and her three kiddos are coming to hang out with us for the day. Jess is homeschooling this year, so I’m going to pick her brain while we munch on Halloween candy and make our kids pose for hundreds of Fall Cousin Pictures.

Do you have any Fun Election Day Plans?

    No election here in KY. Can you believe it?

    I was trying to wait up to see if my dad won his seat as township trustee. I’m tired. Going to bed instead.

    I’m fun with a capital F, aren’t I?

    I could hardly call my election Day plans fun! But at least I remembered to set the alarm early so I had time to vote before work. Now comes the waiting and constant checking to see if the results are in. My aunt is running against 8 other people for Mayor in her town…thats my election day. Hope the cousin pictures turned out well!!

    Our voting station is just a bike path away. I’m going to load the kids up shortly and walk over.
    And Matt requested breakfast for dinner. So I’ll be fryin’ up sausage and griddlin’ pancakes tonight. Can’t wait.
