NaNoWriMo Day 4 – November 4, 2010
By Catherine Dilts
I neglected to submit my report for Day 3 due to circumstances beyond my control. While I was attending the Citizen’s Academy at the DA’s office Wednesday evening, learning about crime, my husband was involved in an armed robbery. Ironic, huh? Colorado Springs folks may have heard about the incident at Pikes Perk. No one was hurt, thank goodness.
Now, on to the really important business of NaNo. I managed to squeeze in an hour of writing before class, then another hour when I got home, never considering that it was way past closing time at the coffee shop, and my husband was still at Bible study.
Needless to say, when he showed up, I had to stop writing for a while. “Hold on a sec, honey. I’ve almost finished my NaNo word count. Then you can tell me all about the armed robbery.”
Have I lost my mind, already? It’s only Day 3!
Maybe sitting in front of a computer screen all day and half the night has caused me to lose my already tenuous connection to reality. So I decided to check in with my fellow NaNoers in the PPW reporter’s pool, to find out what tools they are using to create their novels. Watch for my next NaNo blog post to learn how other NaNoers are holding up – er, maybe that wasn’t the appropriate phrase to use…..
