NaNoWriMo = Aaaaaarrrg!

Tue Nov 11, 2014, 8:00 AM
My NaNoWriMo word count:

This has been me the past three days in progression:

Saturday: :typerbored: 

Sunday:   :untyperhappy: 

Monday: :sleepytyper:  
And now I'm just like: grumpy worker - now a PLZ 

On the upside, I think I FINALLY figured out the scene that's been bugging the crap out of me. I was gonna skip it and just move on, but I should be able to get it down and get back on track today and tomorrow (which is my day off--huzzah!).

In case anyone is mildly curious, here's what my writing set-up with Ulysses looks like:

(Notes and scene titles are not included in the total word count. I've given up on spell check for the duration of NaNo, so please kindly ignore my crimes against the English language.)

And also this really cool retro text app I found for free on the Mac store called Blinky

You can follow my almost-daily updates on tumblr.

That's basically it ... 100% of my non-work brainpower has been sucked into the vortex of NaNo, so yeah. I logged, like, 19 hours of solid computer writing time last week, plus several hours of handwriting time, and probably about 20 more hours of thought time. This is why I don't usually write so prolifically. It ruins my life! But in a good way? No ... it's just insanity, but it must be done!

In summary:
NaNo week 1 = Rainbow Slide Emote 
NaNo week 2 = Grumpy Cat 

</ranting of a deranged NaNo writer>

So how's life going for the rest of you?

  • Mood: Peaceful
  • Listening to: The radio *grumbles*
  • Watching: Legend of Korra & Bob's Burgers
  • Eating: Pizza!
  • Drinking: Cheerwine

I like to consider myself a nerd with class--not because I'm classy but because I enjoy the classic things in life. I'm the kind of person who notices all the little specks of beauty and inspiration that tend to hide just out of sight everywhere we look. I'm passionate about living a life of creativity and enjoy writing, design, photography, and architecture to name a few of my favorites.

I'm currently living in Ohio, and I work at a gun shop for my day job and train dogs as my side job. Not even kidding. I have an interesting life.

Check out my tumblrs:

This is where I collect inspiration and things that speak to my inner nerd
This is where I post quotations and memes about writing
This is where I talking about my actual writing project and post screenshots of my work

These are a few things I'm constantly reminding myself:

No need to think me; just hand over the llamas!
