Here are pictures of Halloween as promised. I'm not going to swamp you with photographs of my non-writing-related life so I'm putting up two. These are pictures we took before we left. There are pictures from after we got back...but I don't think you want to see those.
Also, Day Two of NaNoWriMo has come and gone, and I have spent entirely too much time on the computer today. After over four hours of fussing and writing and
procrastinating on various sites completely writing related things, I went to work and spent another four hours editing news articles. I think I'm going blind. This is the end result:
I'm well on my way to embracing my own adorable little suckmonster. I have duly named him Tommy. Just gotta find that leash...dammit! Come back, Tommy! Ahem. Anyway, he's running loose in the room ripping everything to shreds right now and eating the leftover food in my fridge. I guess this is what comes of doing NaNo.
My new favorite hobby is staring at other people's blue progress bars. Even if I don't know them. Today, I found someone with 25,000 words. I kid you not. But I am not disheartened! I'm still good. When my word count is in the red, I will be worried. I know you're concerned that I am obsessing over quantity over quality, but I'M NOT. The best part about NaNo is those few moments when I get lost in the story and it flows. That's when the word count really flies.
