Day 9: What Was I Doing?

So, life exploded. Sometimes, mine does that, and I just hunker down to ride it out. Still no more words to add to the word count... but I have solid plans for this weekend!

Day 2: 0

The second day, I went with my mom to a lifestyle management center (which is fancy for learning how to eat properly) that I was really impressed by, and we joined up. Then, straight to work, from 2:30 to midnight. Then, I went out for a much needed decompression and bitching session with Brandi. At 3 am I got home, and decided "for inspiration" I would read the new short story collection Santa Baby which has a story by Jennifer Cruisie in it. (Okay, I really just couldn't wait to read the story...) So, a grand total or 0 words added to my Nano.

Day 1: 670

Day 1: Start writing at 4:30 am, because I can't sleep. 670 words and two hours later, it's definitely sleepytime. I can get up before work on Wednesday and do another thousand.
At 10 am, the phone rings, and Brandi is stranded at the mechanic's, can I come get her? No problem. Then we have to go for a late breakfast, then a few errands since her car is in the shop, so I get back home at one, but I have to shower and I really need a nap...
Maybe I can slip in some writing at work? Oops, super busy night (in at 3 pm, and finally got home at 1 am). Still, it's only one day... And maybe I've fulfilled my crisis quota for at least the first week? Plus, who do I call when I need help? My girl Brandi. She's my rock, and my cheerleader, and my strong right hand.
So, it's 2 am, and I am going to try to go to bed. Hopefully, I can fall asleep, and maybe I can even dream part of the book - wouldn't that be cool?

Once again, into the abyss

It's that time of year again... In line with my plan to change things in my life, I'm doing the NaNoWriMo challenge. This time, I hope to make it to the end. Starting tomorrow, I'm going to write 1667 words a day, for a total of 50,000 on November 30th. The only other decision I've made is to try a romance novel this time.
So, with No Plot? No Problem! in hand, the encouragement of my friends and family, and the CherriesNoMo at my side, I'm going in...
