What are we talking about today?

I'm currently in transit. Good-bye to my beloved Austin, hello next adventure. Come along for the ride!

#NaNoWriMo 2016, Day 19

My apartment desperately needs some attention, but that's what December is for, right? I did manage to clear all the junk away from my radiators today, so when my landlord finally turns on the central heating (if it's not on already. I haven't switched it on yet so I don't know) I can use it. So that's something.

Other than that, my day was all about writing and wasting time on Twitter.

First line: She couldn’t be sure, not without testing it, that she’d picked up the storng emothion from teh girl at the grocery store because she’d touched her.

Last line: “Well, being as you just tried to knock my brains out sideways, I don’t care what you want,” Claire retorted. “Start talking.”

#NaNoWriMo 2016, Day I Don't Even Know What

Apparently conjuring enthusiasm for NaNo in a new region is harder than I thought. I finally hit a good spot in my primary project this afternoon, so here's hoping. And this is picking up where we left off, since I have no idea where I started today.

First line: Since the start of her empathy project the three of them had had mood swings and energy fluxatations like none of them had ever seen, not even during puberty.

Last line: A bad mood while grading did not bode well for her students, so she tried to save it for her up days.

#NaNoWriMo 2016: Day 14

Guest blogger coming soon! I don't know what he's going to write about (I never do, until I get the magical email), but at least we'll have a teeny tiny bit of non-NaNo content around here. In the meantime, here we are (as-is, typos and all):

First line: Meghan made it through the front door before collapsing on the couch.

Last line: On the other hand, she enjoyed a good fantasy novel as much as anyone, and the weird in her house was beginning to get to be too munch to ignore.

#NaNoWriMo 2016: Day 13

Yesterday I got my stuff moved in and mostly unpacked (my books are back! Yaaaaaay!!!), and then dashed off a couple sentences on my secondary project at the end of the day just so I had something to update on the NaNoWriMo site. Hence, no blog post, because there wasn't anything to bother posting. Today's a little better--between some furniture arranging and cooking, I got a few words in. 

First line: Since they didn’t even hear her come in, she headed straight to her room to see if her luck would hold out on being super-productive while in a good mood.

Last line: A course of antibiotics to make everything better was more what she was after.

#NaNoWriMo 2016: Day 11

First line: Claire was never sunshiny. The best they could hope for most days was partly cloudy.

Last line: Were they even saying individual words, Claire wondered, or was it just one stream of noise coming directly from their brains and out into the universe?

#NaNoWriMo 2016: Days 4-10

Yes, my word count is still low, despite squeezing six days into this update. I'm hoping to do something about that this weekend, once I get other stuff done. (Movers are coming! And bringing my stuff! I'm so happy about that.)

First sentence: "Go sit down before you pass out."

Last sentence: This project was already taking a turn for the weird.

Bet You Thought I Forgot About #NaNoWriMo

I didn't. I went to Austin over the weekend and have been all over the place since I got back: finding my new polling place, taking my first bike adventure to the grocery store (in the rain, natch), getting internet in the apartment and movers scheduled so all my stuff can finally join me, doing laundry, etc. NaNo has taken a bit of a back seat, but with any luck, I'll have a real update to share tomorrow.

In the meantime, here's a hedgehog having a week kind of like mine (source):
