First Day

Ahhhhh, first day of NaNoWriMo down and 2054 words written. I'm pretty happy, but now I really have to go to sleep! I have been up way too late the past several nights, and it would be really nice not to have to blast off to work tomorrow, especially since there is snow and slush on the ground and the temperature is going to drop steadily for the next day or so.

I'm still loving the snow, though. It hung around for most of the day, though a good bit of it melted. Around 4:30, we had some fake snow (I don't really know what it was, but my Massachusetts informant told me that it wasn't snow). It was still really pretty, whatever it was. After that, the fake snow changed to real snow. It snowed for a few hours and re-covered the ground. It has stopped now, but I think it is supposed to start again sometime in the near future. I feel like I'm in a Christmas card!

The stuff on the car looked more like slush than snow??? How much snow did you get? How long does it take you to walk to work?

How goeth the bike? Dit you allow your trusty steed to return home yet?

I love your phrase about feeling as though you are in a Christmas card! And i love you, too!

Congrats on your writing. Dan asked about you when I talked with him Sunday. He is doing well after surgery.

2000+ words already--woohoo!!!! you are already ahead of a daily average!!! are you gonna give out any clues as to the subject of your novel??? or just leave us all in suspense???

I'm still doing my daily writing project until the end of 2009--have somewhere around 12,000 words so far . . also started a Poem a Day project for November . .

so, how are you gonna squeeze WORK into your writing schedule????

love you, and I continue to be sooooo proud of you.

All you writers...WOW!! The most I write are lists of stuff to do and lesson plans, with an occasional complaint letter thrown in.

Elizabeth said...

Wow! Those projects sound pretty amazing, aquamaureen. And Mom, I am completely impressed that you can write a complaint letter! That's a whole other ballgame! ;-)

Right now, my novel is kind of wandering where it wishes. We will see where it goes in time, I suppose!
