Well, Monday was the first day of NaNo. The plan was to write, write, and write some more. Instead, I had some adventure!
First, I overslept, which I hate to do. Then, I got up and checked out the blogs that participated in the show your space blogfest hosted by Summer over at ….and this time, concentrate! Lots of fun getting to look in people’s houses without feeling creepy about it. And making new friends is always good.
That bit of blogging may take today’s place….depends on what kind of time I have. Anyhoo, I also got one of the packages I had been expecting, but it’s a secret, so…. The other one, the one I need right now-nope, it didn’t come and it was supposed to. The receipt said so. Hmph.
I also ran two errands, both of which could have been a disaster. Twice, TWICE, cars pulled out right smack in front of me. One ran a stop sign, the other turned left in front of me. If I had not been making a right turn myself, I would have hit the second car. Where do people get their driving licenses these days, out of Happy Meals?
About the errands. The second one was to the grocery store to pick up fixin’s for chili. The first one was a bit more exciting. William had ordered the set of Lost dvds and they came to my house. I dropped them off to him between classes and picked up something from him that he’d gotten for me. Did that make sense?
During Harry Potter Fest at the college, there were a couple bands that sang songs just about HP. I asked him to pick up a couple cd’s for me and he got them autographed. Sweet! Plus, he picked up a handful of buttons. I’m thinking about a giveaway. Initially, I wanted to do it as a kick off for the movie on the 19th. Well, duh! I’m in the middle (okay, beginning) of nano and won’t have time. I’m crazy sometimes, but I ain’t stupid. So, I’ll probably be adding a few other things and doing something for Christmas.
The rest of the afternoon was spent writing. The last time I stopped, I had a word count of over 2600 words-I can’t upload anything because the site is overwhelmed. Dang. I also managed to turn in last week’s homework, as well as this week’s. I thought about doing next week’s but it involved making a chart so I said eh, I can do it later.
Right now, just waiting on the chili to cook and Honey to get home. In the fall, they move their schedule back an hour so technically, he’s off at 7pm instead of 8. Which means, he might get home around 8:30 instead of 9:30 or later. Woohoo.
RenFest was really fun and we got lots of pics. I’ll be doing a couple posts about that Thursday and maybe next Tuesday. I also got to meet BossMan and his wife and son. They’re really nice. And very funny.
I saw something on one person’s blog that I liked and so, of course, I’m stealing it. She’s in nano and has committed to visiting everyone’s blog at least once a week. That sounds pretty good to me. I feel bad, like I’m neglecting you all, but I gotta do what I gotta do, so I hope you’ll forgive me.
When I logged on here to schedule this post, Roo decided to help. She’s grown a bit and in this pic, it shows.
If any of you out there are Lost
fanatics fans, you should check out William’s post. He got some really awesome shots of what all is inside. It’s enough to make me want to watch the whole thing…..
Good luck and happy writing!
