Progress (word count or a general status update): 2,248
Current Mood: Sick as a dog and thoroughly exhausted (neither of which I realize are actually moods, but meh).
Inspiration (a writing-related quote): ““The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.” Tom Clancy (I realize this quote is kind of a rip-off of something Mark Twain said a long time ago, but it’s something at the forefront of my mind this WIP—First and foremost, this book has to make sense!)
Goals as of Today: If I get 1,000 words today, I’ll be happy.
Recent Favorite NaNo-WiP Line: So I buy myself a hot dog for ten cents and park myself on a seat inside the bus depot. And then I take a bite and remember why I don’t eat hot dogs. They smell like sweat and taste only marginally better.
Non-NaNo News (because life DOES go on): I’m sick. So freaking sick, you guys. And I’m 7 1/2 months pregnant, so the only medicine that is safe to take doesn’t help at all. Add to this that my daughter was sick, then caught a case of croup, and I haven’t had more than 4 hours of sleep a night since last Saturday. It’s … not fun.
In My Downtime (ha!) I’m Reading: Ha, indeed. I’m reading nothing at the moment. I did finish THE DIVINERS by Libba Bray earlier this week, and holy freaking voice was it good. Definitely recommended.
You should read this blog post: Fail. I’ve barely read blog posts at all this week, and the ones I did read are all running together in my mind.
Gratuitous Photograph (because I love ’em!): I did manage to accomplish this Tuesday night. This is what you wind up with when you let a nearly-three-year-old have input on your pumpkin carving design.
How’s your NaNo project going? Or, if you’re not NaNo’ing, how’s November treating you so far?
