The Fates Are Conspiring ...

Welcome to my pity party.

It's November 4th and my NaNoWriMo total is a big, fat goose egg.

There are a million reasons why. The "day job" is killing me. DH is home. Yadda yadda.

Really, aside from that I don't have a lot else to say. I'm surviving on coffee and very little sleep and still don't have enough hours in the day to do the things I'm being paid to do. I haven't done anything around my house but the dishes in a week. The cat is vomiting again -- we're going to the vet on Monday. Maybe my house is toxic. I have the agility fun match on Sunday ... I considered skipping, but my daughter and the instructor nearly cried.

Today, I'm taking a notepad with me when I pick up the kidlet. I have about ten minutes while I wait in line that I can at least jot something down. I'm not the kind of writer who can write in ten minute bursts, though. I need to reread what I have done, get absorbed in the story again, before I really get words down.

And that's my life.

Wishing you all a great weekend with electricity and beautiful weather (wishing it for me and mine as well *G*).


You Are a Blue Flower

You know a lot, and you're always learning more. You believe in being self-sufficient.

You are a rule breaker but not a rule maker. You generally despise all rules.

You are very fantasy prone. If you don't like how the world is, you imagine how it could be.

You are an open, flexible person who is able to see the world through many perspectives.

75% right.

I can't write in 10 minute bursts either. But I do jot notes of good dialog or scenes.

I'm the same way when it comes to writing. I have to always reread what I wrote and get absorbed back into the story. That's why when I sit down to write, I make sure I have a good three or four hours available.

Sorry you're so busy with everything. Hope you find a break soon.

PS: I'm a red flower. Mostly right.

Sorry you've had so many issues keeping you from writing lately. I hope you'll find the time soon.
You are a yellow flower: You stay engaged with life and with other people. You are very connected to your community.
You don't care what you're doing... you're just happy to be with your friends.
You are independent yet interdependent. You want other people around, but you don't like needing them.
You are a natural community builder. You include everyone in your plans.

Hmm, maybe 25% correct.

I hope you have a lovely weekend!
