Ta-daaaaaaaaaa!

50,141 words and a happy ending.

Yeaye!

Going out to dinner, I think.

Today I took pleasure in seeing the "You Won!" screen at NaNoWriMo.org.

Today I learned how to order new checks for my job.

Yknow...


Someday I'll break down and do that...I just never get around to it. Maybe they could move it to January - I've never anything to do in January.

Re: Yknow...
Chris Baty actually has a book out called "No Plot? No Problem!" which is a sort of handbook for NaNoWriMo, and even suggests that you can pick another month and do the same thing, as long as you abide by the same rules as the "official" month. I actually tried to do a different month one time myself, but didn't quite make it. It does kinda help to have that weird sort of vibe of knowing that you're not the only other person crazy enough to do this.

Um, no.

No, sorry, nobody gets to see this one this time. There's too much in it that I'd be embarrassed by.

However, I do plan to revise it considerably and when I have done so, I'll be poking around for people willing to take a look at it. I'm sure I'll post in this here blawg when I've reached that point.

Conga-rats!
Meanwhile I've done fuck-all for a week except read other people's blogs, clean up a bit, beg my family to register online at Amazon so I actually know what they frickin' WANT for once (I guess correctly more often than not, but it's stressful), and fight with the Evil Ovary (tears and prayers for instant death were involved).

Some articles of write-age you might enjoy:

Two quotes that sound suspiciously like something I would write, were I not so damned lazy:

1. THE GOOD NEWS: because you chose to wax, you won't see any regrowth of hair for weeks. Why? Because it is AFRAID. When it does return, it will come in fine and soft, not stickery.

THE BAD NEWS: Now you have to wait a few days before resuming sex. Or doing anything besides lying in front of a fan with your legs spread (have one of those Glade Scent-Story things going; this can attract gulls.)

Chances are you ain't gonna feel much like exposing your nethers to the public anyway, nethers which are asking you 'Why? Was I bad??' in a trembly little voice and will be for at least a day or so.

2. I was on a Stonehenge kick about ten years ago. I read every nonfiction book and article I could find on the subject. What I learned is that nobody knows who built it or what its for, but they DO know that it's 1. big, and 2. made of rocks.

Though for number one, I don't see the point in putting hot wax on my bum, or nearby provinces thereof, and as for number two, I'd probably throw in a Spinal Tap reference.

Enjoy!
