Day 5 and STILL alive -

See? I told you my mind had turned to pudding. All day today I've been chanting "Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot."

but it wasn't until I went to My Writing Nook this evening to (finally!) do some writing, that I finally noticed that if today is the 5th of November, then it is Day 5. Yesterday was Day 4. Pay no attention to the title of yesterday's post.

And just now I inadvertently posted this entry, long before I had planned to do so. I wanted to come in and say again Whoopee! I've written 2,000 words! but I haven't done that yet. I wrote a couple of hundred this morning before work, and I'm just setting out to do my evening's writing.  Now look what I've gone and done.

So - tomorrow I'll come back and report today's count and tomorrow's count - or I'll come back later and leave a postscript. At this point, I have no idea what I might do.

Meanwhile, the image and verse in this post both came from Wikipedia.

Is there  a full moon, by any chance? Happy Guy Fawkes Day, everybody.

Don't blow anything up!

I'll try not to, Barry, but I'm feeling kind of dangerous. I think I'll just sit here and type and try not to fry my hard drive. 527 words now. Step by step, inch by inch.....

Girl, I tell you that you will be finished with your entire novel before I get my next short story edited and fit for posting. Gad!, but I'm slow!

Angel May, I'm writing lots of words, but they're not making any sense. Yesterday, in particular, I just wrote in circles, trying to figure out where I was. Failed.

Ah, the full moon is past--just keep forging on. It seems one benefit of the NaNoWriMo exercise is to establish a process, & you're certainly doing that!
