Hey. You know how I said I was woefully behind?
I wrote 7,509 words. HOLY CRAP, RIGHT?! I was on a roll!
So now I have 44,552 words total. I was thinking of trying to make it to 45,000, but I was too tired to make any sense. So I’ll just get that 500 words later.
This happened today:
Dirt Bag Muse: “Sup. How’s NaNoWriMo?”
Me: “Oh you know, it’s going–Wait, what are you doing here?”
DBM: “I got a new idea.”
Me: “No.” Continue reading
Hey, you remember how on the 21st I didn’t write anything at all?
I did it again.
I have a halfway decent excuse. After 6 months of deployment in some sand-filled shit hole, my husband is home! Hooray! It’s a celebration!
But you don’t have to show Charlie Murphy your titties if you don’t want to.
So anyway, yeah, I spent the day doing family things. Because MY FAMILY IS BACK TOGETHER!!
But uhhhh I’m like 3,000 words behind now. So tomorrow is going to be a crazy write-tastic day.
I wrote nothing today. NOTHING!
Child #1 was sick earlier this week, and she passed it on to Child #2. So I’m in the middle of a cleaning frenzy when I get a call from daycare: “#2 puked all over the wall.”
So I picked the kids up at lunchtime, brought them home, coddled them. And then, since I had to be at the airport at 3am, I took them to Grandma’s house and then returned home to attempt sleep.
Sleep did not come. By that time, it was technically the 22nd, so that’s where my tale ends.
TL;DR: No writing! I suck!
Woohoo! I caught up! 2,347 words, totaled at 33,400.
I’m experiencing a little bit of a block, though. To fix it, I’m skipping around in the story. It’s okay, though. Right? Sure.
653 words. Total of 31,053. I’m officially behind. 😦
But it’s for a good reason. Child #1 has some kind of stomach flu, so she’s home puking all over everything like the kid from The Exorcist and I’m cleaning it up. When she’s not spewing projectile vomit onto everything, she’s being very clingy and wanted me sitting next to her. Going to the bathroom is tough even. And I have homework to do and papers to write and a house to clean and another kid to feed and stuff. I got a little writing done, and I’m hoping to make up the difference tomorrow and Friday. Fingers crossed!
728 words, total 30,400.
Hooray I broke 30,000! But I’m a total slacker and I only broke 30,000 (barely). Exhaustion is getting the better of me. I went to bed early, though, so maybe tomorrow I’ll have more energy for MOAR WRITING!
