NaNo is here, and I have a lot on my plate. Manuscript proofreading and a new Regency story, along with all the end of quarter stuff at school–report cards, parent conferences. (Alas, I’ve set aside the poor pirate story until December.)
So I will be living like my second son, the graduate student. He is busy always. I can be downstairs for hours and not know that he is home.
One day last week I realized that around here Nathan opens three doors:
- The front door
- The refrigerator door
- and his bedroom door
Meaning that he comes home, gets food, and goes upstairs to do homework. That’s where he is right now. He has three papers and a massive midterm next week. And I have a wad of writing–and thinking–to do.
I’ve put a word count thingy on the sidebar–the one with the evil calendar. When I miss, that day is red. My goal is to write words–even junk words–every day. So far so good!
