Only got in 987 words last night. I was so tired I found myself staring at the monitor for about ten minutes without moving. That’s when I packed it in. Close but no cigar. Oh well, at least I’m keeping y promise to myself, even if it is a tad less than I wanted. Today , I’m already at a thousand so I won’t get too down on myself.
Doing some mind map or cluster thingy on my 3 day Novel idea. this afternoon. Yes, I entered again this year after having no intention of doing so. And yes, I am counting it as part of my 100 word challenge. It’s like a drug, I guess. How else can you explain the fact that I voluntarily cut myself off from all human contact for the 3 days of Labor Day weekend and write non-stop… or a close to non-stop as this 60 year old body of mine will let me. I always nap. I have to. It’s either that or check myself in to a looney bin afterwards. I’m not the only one. Oddly, it’s a very popular contest. I think it has something to do with feeling like you have to push yourself just to see if you can. Or maybe we are all a bit masochistic and this is a convenient and acceptable way of beating ourselves up.
This year, my Idea is a dieting serial killer. Considering I’m dieting AND writing for 3 days non-stop makes you either suicidal or manic, I think it’s perfect. Starting laying in provisions today…the non-perishable kind. Hey, a sale is a sale!
That’s it for today. I do hope I’m not boring people too much…but then again, I don’t think anyone but me reads this shit anyway 🙂
Hey…. i read this shit 😉 Heh heh. Not all the time though… I’ve been quite lax online of late…I blame the sun…and company!
Spent today in my Head Office (BED OFFICE) – feeling a bit oogily…but using the time to let the fever dreams of the 3day grow….
Lawdy lawdy…who knows WHAT I’ll come out with.
Keep scribblin’, Sister!
go easy ~p
Thanks Kiddo. Fever dreams sound bad for you… but good for 3Day. By the end of it, we are ALL fever dreaming.
Hey! I, too, read this stuff. It just takes me a while to get to it.
I think DSK will kick butt. You just go for it, girl! I know you can do it.
You’d make a great coach, Bill. Thanks! and yes, there will definitely be some butt kicking going on.
