Who can’t wait for Friday to get here?
If you are thinking it is just the beginning of the weekend, then you must not be a writer. This Friday is November 1st. The first of November marks the beginning of none other than Na No Wri Mo. That is National Novel Writing Month. It is the challenge where you are to write a novel of 50,000 in a month. That is 1654 words a day or something to that extent to meet the challenge.
No cheating now!
What will I work on? Hmmm…
At first I thought of working on the next Orgarlan book for this challenge, but I have changed my mind. I’m in the mood for writing crap. Maybe a crap storyline that I have no investment in so I can beat it up or make it as sloppy as I can make it without worry of the outcome.
I did this once before, and nothing ever came of the story line except it remains half done and in my slush pile. That was Wish Away. My genie story. Maybe someday I will open that manuscript up and give it another shot.
This time I think I want to try shutting off my internal editor and filter. If it turns out to be something worth keeping in the end, I would probably publish it under a different name since I have a feeling that it will be an adult story.
I have an idea too. Nope, I’m not going to divulge at this time. You will have to wait and see what I’m toying with. Hint: some kind of fantasy and a stand-alone.
Julie is doing better. A week ago she was getting terribly lame. So lame that she barely could stand and move about. We feared the worst for our family pooch of 13+ years.
Last Thursday we pulled ideas out of the air as of what to do for her. After giving her three doses of Benadryl in a 24 hour period, she began to show improvement. My thought was to try and lower the swelling around some of her lumps. This seemed to help.
Then on Saturday we went out and bought her some Glucosamine for her hips and joints. We got her the good stuff in the red bottle, but it is only stage two. We wanted stage three, but apparently a lot of dogs are having this problem, now that the cold has hit the New Hampshire region. Regardless she has been getting three tablets a day and her improvement is remarkable. She had been in such a state that was so grim seven days ago, her recovery now, is so incredible. Now she is running, climbing up stairs, skipping and some jumping. This stuff is truly remarkable. Thank God she appears to be doing so much better.
I have not done any more work on the next Orgarlan book from last Saturday. I also missed my Sunday post update. I posted, but it wasn’t an update announcement. The thought was there. Trust me.
I do believe I will switch from the Orgarlan novel I was working on to work on to the NaNo Novel. This plot is kind of taking over me brainstorming. Why fight it? Who knows how it will turn out?
