National Novel Writing Month, Day 11

From The Desk of Liz Ensley:

I rejected two spam commnts about making money. I mean, if you're going to spam me, Anonymice (hey, it sounds funnier for a plural than anonymouses or anonymii--and I almost called them anonymeeses [remember the odl Tom and Jerry cartoon?], lol). I know some folks like spam, . eggs, bacon, and spam in the morning, but it's a bit too early in the morning for me. I'm more an oatmeal-and=toast or Raisin Bran-type of person.

I'm a bit behind, but at least I made 5001 words total last night. This is cumulative and not all at once, though at one point in my life I could have written like tht in one sitting, no problem. Part of it is that I really need new glasses. It seems that an outdated prescription isn't conducive to typing all your ideas down. I don't want to tpe with my eyes closed because sometimes I have a tendency to use the wrong keys for home, lol. I would at lwast like to be able to read, rather than have to decrypt, what I have written, when NaNoEdMo rolls around.

I keep checking the National Novel Editing Month site. I wonder if it will be running again, or if it's out for good. If it stays closed, maybe a few of us could wait for March anyway, and encourage each other to edit. The last time I participated in NaNoEdMo, back in 2005, I think the goal was a cumulative 50 hours worth of editing, minimum, on the system of trust. Since March has 31 dats, we could get in 62 hours of editing, at two hours per day.

Spam, eggs, bacon and spam!? Love it!

I'm still working toward 2000 total words... they just aren't coming this year. But, I keep trying!

Keep up the good work, and good luck with the prescription... I know how much a bad pair of glasses can not help out!

Yay! A real, honest-to-goodness and not spammerific comment! Thank you!

The strangest thing is having the idea, but working out the particulars. I have the major parts (most of them) in my head. Good luck to you, too!
