Words, Wonderful Words

"The task of a writer consists of being able to make something out of an idea." - Thomas Mann

Things are moving quickly on NaNo right now -- but that's only because I'm working on what I had plotted already. I'm rapidly reaching the spot where it's anyone's guess what will happen. Still, I'm glad I'm getting a little ahead.

Thanks to the folks who gave me words (and two of you who gave me other ideas! Lamancha goats and foot fetishes... hmmm...).

Here's what I had:

cornucopia (from Dru)
Exasperate (from Brandy)
rambunctious or rigmarole (from Maria)
flaunt, consternation (from Anno)
extemporaneous (from Ceri)
plethora, dearth (from Groovy)

And so far I've used two:

How had he managed to lose touch with the plethora of people who had mattered so deeply only a few years ago?

Less than a minute and the girl had managed to exasperate Geoff.


In other news, my knee went out for no apparent reason yesterday. Once again it had been feeling just fine and dandy and then ... WHAMMO... I couldn't walk. So, I'm finally breaking down and calling the doctor.

I hate doctors. I'm also not particularly fond of having a body that appears to be breaking down already. I'm not THAT old. Sheesh.


You Are an Overachiever

Good for you! You believe you can do anything, and you just go for it.

Like everyone else in this world, you have limitations... but you don't let them slow you down.

At times you can be a bit of a perfectionist. Remember to be easy on yourself.

You don't have to be perfect as long as you're doing your best!

Yeah ... well, I didn't need a quiz to tell me that.

I can't wait to see how you use the word I gave you.

Excellent word count! WTG!

You Are an Achiever

You push yourself, but not too much. You believe that slow and steady wins the race.

You have realistic goals and a good plan for how to achieve them. You work hard.

You keep your eye on the prize, but you also know when to give yourself a break.

You know that all work and no play is no way to live, and you definitely know how to have fun when the time is right.

This is me.

Have a good Tuesday.

My knee is sending your knee warm thoughts.

Or something like that. Seriously, I hope it mends soon.

Brandy said...

Oh,no! You never went to the Doctor when it was bothering you the last time? I hope the Doctor can help your knee feel better.

Awww, you used my word.*g*

I am an Overachiever, too.

I hope you have a pleasing day.

Yikes! I hope your knee is something fairly easy to fix.
