NaNo! First weekend...

I'm at 8,858 words, and have posted a couple of excerpts at nightmaresaloon.

I realized I will HAVE to pay for some internet time while on the ship, because I won't be able to verify the word count until, I think, November 29 or 30th (I can't remember when verify opens). However, I was checking the website and see that it's much cheaper now than it was a few years ago, including when out at sea (now it's satellite technology, no longer dependent on cell towers or cables!).

Been moving really slow here today. We took our Sunday morning walk around the park, did Mom's shopping, watched another disc of Fringe (we're almost done with Barb watching through S4, so I can FINALLY start on S5 here soon, which are piling up on the Tivo -- we're almost done, though, only three more episodes).

I'm having intense cravings for SOMETHING. I'm trying to curb them by eating almonds. Those Special K pastry crisps are pretty good, though. I ate ONE 100-calorie pack.

Back to work.

I admire you so much for your writing!

And food cravings are nearly impossible for me to fight when I try to write. It's like having a war with two fronts -- I can think and eat, or I can not eat and not think. Well, actually, I can also eat and not think, but I try not to...

It doesn't help that half my characters are foodies, and the vampire doesn't have to worry about calories AT ALL as he scarfs down giant slabs of chocolate cake.

At least my heroine appears to have healthy food habits. She had an egg white panini for her breakfast. :)

Argh! Why do our characters have to have LIVES of their OWN?!?! ;)

I don't write them, I just chronicle their lives! :D

i'll have to go look at the snippets.

hope it won't cost much if you do have to buy internet time

It's expensive, but affordable. I can buy a package of minutes, just enough to upload stuff for the verify.

I've wandered off writing a few times for research (my own work and otherwise), but I'm over 11,000.

you're doing great. I forgot to total mine but i'm around there myself

That is one thing I do like about Word, is the constant word count.

I wish I didn't have to work days...

yes. open office inflates my word count. I think it counts spaces (much like Harper voyager's submission thing and twitter)

i hear you
