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 It seems that an outdated prescription isn't conducive to typing all your ideas down.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.
