Today marks the beginning of National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, aka writing 50,000 words in 1 month, aka the thing I tried in August and failed, aka the thing I’m trying again. Erin and Aurora bullied convinced me to give it another go. Other awesome peeps I know that are doing it include Mandy, and Therese and Kathleen from Writer Unboxed. Not sure if Eric is, but I’m trying to bully convince him to.
I had a decent morning session (970 words), but football cut me off in the afternoon. Now let’s see if I can get in another good session while Andy watches Game 4 of the World Series…
(Yes, our house/life is ruled by sports. As my mom likes to say, Andy is a “ball junkie.”)
Random factoid: I’m finding techno/electronica very good for writing music right now. Something about the heavy beats and simple lyrics (or lack of lyrics), I think. It stimulates without distracting.
