Saturday night, well, actually it’s Sunday morning

Or is it?  We’ve got to fall back tonight.  So it’s really only 11:17 p.m., not 12:17 a.m.  I’ve just finished writing about 1/2 hour ago.  Then went to update my word count on the NaNoWriMo site.


Yep, that’s right.  Seven thousand eight hundred and forty-two words.  And I was looking after my youngest grandson tonight.

I thought, momentarily, of not doing any writing at all, but once I had him in bed and had some of the toys picked up and his dirty clothes put away I thought “why not?”  I’ll get to far behind if I don’t   So right now I think I’m about 500 words short of where I should be, but I’m not sweating it.

The fact that I’m writing upwards of  1000 words a day is, to me, amazing.

Is my story more than just a bunch of words vomited on to the page?  I think so, but it’s going to need some major work when I’m done.

That is going to be the scary part.  Will I have anything worth trying to turn into something?

Oh, Lord, I’m tired.  I don’t even think that made sense.

So, good night.

Here’s to Daylight Saving Time.

    That is ONE HELLUVA lot of words. You just couldn’t take a few days off under any circumstances! Good on you. You’ve really got it going on!

      You’re no slouch yourself in the writing department — I’m always amazed at your daily output. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Well done! Nano can be a slog but the real work will be the editing afterwards.

      Thanks for the cheer — I’m really hoping I can find some editing support afterwards.

    Hello Katerina, Phil, Anne, Carrot, Erectitudes, Clown Rhymes, Lady (with a truck 😉 ), Guess what I did today, What happened to Alice, Traces of Jupiter, Barking in the Dark, KLRS09 (all that matters), Edward, Sk8erchrissheek, Waefarer.

    If your name is embolded, it means I have your email address. If your name is NOT embolded, it means I’m going to have to post this as a comment on your blog – but to be discrete as possible, I will post it in the ‘About You’.

    I figured after asking the first couple of Gravatars could I have their email address that most people don’t seem to want their email address out there so my best approach, with respect for your privacy, is to paste this as a comment.

    Mid October Katerina very generously awarded me the One lovely blog award. I was honoured, sincerely, but it seemed too much work to accept it (sorry!). BUT THEN, October 30 Phil awarded me the Versatile blog award. Again I was chuffed – it really is lovely to be thought of like this. I then thought, maybe I can accept both awards in one post, and highlight some of my favourite bloggers in the meantime.

    I wish to do a video which opens with links to both Katerina’s page and Phil’s page AND a quote of 1-2 (no more) paragraphs of one of your blogs, read by me – and then telling the viewer that to see the end of that post, visit the blog!

    The video would then move on to me doing a reading of 1-2 paras (no more) of each and every other one of you others, as I wish to nominate you all for these awards too – as you others would be my nominees.

    IT MUST BE UNDERSTOOD THAT ACCEPTING NOMINATION IS NOT ESSENTIAL – IT IS ENTIRELY OPTIONAL (which is why I didn’t think I could be bothered with the first nomination – oh the rules on acceptance!). You accept it or don’t; it’s up to you – in the very least, it’s nice to be mentioned.

    I request your permission to read 1-2 paras of your work on a video, and then finish the read with a link to your page, and announcing you as a nominee. If you don’t like this idea at all, you are so very free to say no thanks.

    I require your consent because to me words are quiet precious. You bring them to mind and arrange them in your style and you begift whomever you wish to, and it just may be that you don’t want your words going too far.

    Today is Sunday 6 November to me. For all the people who respond to me at saying yes I may quote their words in the video, I will do those people only. If you don’t respond, or if you respond to say ‘no, please don’t’, I respect fully your wishes.

    I intend to film next Saturday and hopefully have the video up by early next week. So I do look forward to hearing from you.

    That wasn’t exactly brief, but I did need to say it and not everyone had an email address.

    Kindest best to you, fellow bloggers, & some of you being subbers too.


    SPECIFIC FAVOUR REQUESTED: Can someone – someone please help me and copy this email onto the blog of ‘What’s Happened to Alice’. I like her page very much and really want her in this, and would be honoured if she would allow me to read something of hers – BUT I KEEP GETTING FAILURE MESSAGES – I CAN’T POST MESSAGES TO HER PAGE. I HAVE NO WAY OF CONTACTING WHAT’S HAPPENED TO ALICE. Please could you do this for me, someone – – and let me know what she says? Thank you.
