Category: NaNoWriMo


Sunday


This has been such a busy day that I can’t believe it is already over. Where did the hours go? I did finish a sock. Oh, I had my NaNo project, Crystal, open all day and I was actually working on the character developments I needed. And Check☑ I got one out of 8 done. And I copied the story from yWriter to WriteItNow. But during all that I was watching season 4 of Dawson’s Creek. It’s so sad to watch the kids all go off to college. It’s called Dawson’s Creek and yet nobody but empty-nesting parents are at the creek. This show so reminds me of times with my teenage daughter, yikes, 20 years ago! And I never watched these last couple seasons as we all moved and my own empty-nest happened. But enough strolling down memory lane, that sock mate won’t knit itself. By the way, this is my last week of being 71. Yikes! It’s all above ground and healthy. Can’t complain, right?

One-Liner Wednesday


Anyone else feeling the post NaNoWriMo now editing blues?

I thought I’d be finished tonight. And maybe I still might, there’s almost three hours left of the day. But at this moment I have 48,458 words. Why am I so sleepy, tired and wordless?

Snap! Yep, that was a whip! See ya on the flipside!

One-Liner Wednesday


During NaNoWriMo I binge on oldies like Jurrasic Parks; one of the tunes in the soundtrack reminds me of:

Isn’t it interesting how fossil fuels play?

Per Linda:

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

Making Monday


A pair of socks closer to the heel now. Finishing with 2by2 ribbed cuff.
Another charity hat.

My NaNoWriMo book, ‘Crystal’, is nearly caught up to date. I’m supposed to be at 36,674 words. I have 36,087 so I’m going to random word prompt until I can meet the quota.

How are all of you? Making things? Words?

Finished Friday


Still writing. Need another couple hundred words to make the daily allotment.

Meanwhile I finished this hat a couple days ago.

Theater Thursday


Not a lot of time to get this out and make sure I get all the words I need for NaNoWriMo for today, so I’ll make this fast.

My latest binge has been Roswell. I wish this show was on every day! I love it. I had watched the first two seasons before, but I am excited to have just finished season 3. And now I have learned that there will be a season 4! Whoop! Now that it is over, I may go back and rewatch from the beginning.

Now back to my writing. The current count is 29,3888. I hope to reach 30,006

Happy Thursday, Everyone!


I had to miss yesterday. I went to town (two hours away) to get an upper GI procedure done. I barely got 400 words before I left and had no energy when I got home for anymore. So today, I had to play catch up. My friend and I are finding when we get together on Zoom, we are reasonably productive. We do a bit of a chat but then get right to it. Sometimes we talk about our projects and somehow, bringing the story to light seems to give us a push. This is her first year in a long time that she’s felt up to NaNoWriMo. But she’s being gentle and keeping it accessible for herself to feel good about it. Her goal is 25K, and she is going great guns. I love hearing about her story.

My own story is coming along. It surprises me that the story that started out as a bunch of drawings for #Inktober. Yet the characters feel as real as if they lived in this house with me. Anyway, Crystal now has 26,873 words that make me just a smidge ahead of today’s count.

Oh, the pickles that Crystal and her friends get up to!

Knitting still continues. I think I will have a hat finished in the next few days. I can say, happily, that the mohair is finally gone!

I also have two pairs of socks in the making. This one is ahead of the race. I like to work on them two at a time, so they stay the same length as their mate. This one is for a male, so the heel will be another four inches from here.

Thus Thursday


A quick peek out my window.

It’s been a day. I feel accomplished. The NaNoWriMo goal for today calls for 18,337. A Zoom write in with a friend pulled 18,430 words. With the coming appointment days I wanted to be farther ahead. There’s still enough day to add more.

Duo is done. I’m in a hard lesson but I finally got it done!

And I had no idea what to put here but that sunset got me a start. The rain had been more than usual. I love it! The clouds keep the sky beautiful.

Now back to writing.

Happy Friday Junior!

To-Dos Tuesday


I decided I had better get over here and try and see if I have anything at all to report. Sadly, I feel I have much more to-do on everything than any Ta-Da could handle. So let’s see if I can figure out What Day of the Week Is It Anyway? Tuesday means somehow Monday happened and I missed my writers’ group again. I think it is the timing. Sometimes it is after my only meal and I feel I need to wash dishes or nap, sometimes both. My phone isn’t near when I am not at the recliner or the bed or the desk. So hearing an alarm is always elsewhere and I missed it.

And I feel badly in that though I seem to get writing done, it is seldom their prompts that I’ve been writing, and I can’t read aloud right now. The news that I may not even get my surgery until after the beginning of the year is so discouraging. I usually have yWriter read back to me what I’ve been writing. If I am in editing mode I have Word read my work to me. I can’t wait until my eyes can read again! I miss stories coming into my eyes! I often miss things that are read to me. But I’m doing the best I can.

So, I have nearly made the daily quota for NaNo for the day. It is supposed to be 15,003 I’m at 14,861 so before I go to bed I will probably hit that. But with the two medical procedures coming up that will take up whole days I wanted to be a couple days ahead. Not that the procedures will take that long but each time we go to town it is four hours of driving and wearing on body and soul. Who knows how much energy I will have to write those days?

Four socks and a hat are in the early stages so I can’t even feel anything more than happy to be making them. The hands feel good doing what they can, you know?

And maybe because I’m supposed to be writing, I have found my recorders fun again. AND I just found the music book with Moonlight Sonata to play again! Yay! Me! I think I can blame the Pandora station called Classical Study Music Radio. They seem to tease me with that song every other piece! Guess who needs to dust her piano keys? Yep! This gal!

Though I can read music since my eyes are so bad, maybe I should work on this one (I used to have memorized) with just ears so I will try this guy out tomorrow:

Someday maybe I’ll share my musics with you. Right now I wish I could find a quiet spot in the woods where no one can hear me and just mess around with notes and sounds. After all, I share my blunders and mistakes with art, knitting, and all. Yeh, a lot of psychology is involved in the music of my life. It’s a work in progress.
