Good thing I’m so handsome.
And your eyes are so clear
but not colorless
Certainly a cut above
as they cut through me
straight to my heart.
Metaphors fall to their knees in my brain
pleading to be used
but I don’t feel
no matter how many synapses they cross
no matter how many syllables they bear
no matter how unique their words
that any are worthy
of being compared
to the eyes
that I look into
when I see into your soul.
I can read your mind
and I can feel your heart
but when I see through your eyes
I can see forever
Yes indeed; two consecutive days of putting words on the page. Netting me a total of 684 words.
Words per day of writing: 546
Words per day total: 162
Days between 11/26 and 11/16: 10
And that is why November is not a good NaNoWriMo month (at least for me… I actually spoke to a friend over Thanksgiving break who was doing the NaNoWriMo thing for a Young Adult book she was working on, and I think she was actually getting it done. Good work.)
But, at least this means I can probably post whatever that Snippet Friday thing is this Friday.
3685 in November so far. 230 words per day average for November.
614 words on days when I write more than 0 words.
Can you tell I have a spreadsheet?
Yee ha! And that’s only my 3rd highest day so far this month! Averaging: 217 words per day, but 706 on days that I actually write. So, pretty much I just need write on more days. Yup.
Quesadillas are good too. I’ve had other stuff… don’t remember exactly what, since I usually just get an order of nachos and quesadillas, but it’s always all good.
Make sure to order ahead of time (Burt requires that for reservations) so you won’t have to wait too long for delicious pizza.
Burt talked my friend into getting stuff on the pizza, which was fine,…
I know that it’s not impossible for me to write 50,000 in a month. But in my current situation, where I have to work 8 hours a day, it’s very difficult. And November is about the worst month anyone could have possibly picked for NaNoWriMo. I mean, not everyone has a birthday in November (like me), but pretty much everyone has Thanksgiving. This year, I’m visiting my parents for 4 days for Thanksgiving. So, yeah, NaNoWriMo isn’t going to happen. Just like it doesn’t happen every year for me. At some point, I’m going to figure out a month where I can have my own personal NaNoWriMo.
So even though I’m not going to get to 50,000 words, I’ve been inspired by reading other “on writing” blogs where authors are posting their word counts. That, and I’ve found myself with more free time than I usually do. Not sure how that happened. As such, I’ve managed to get in 3,000 word so far this month (don’t look now! That’s 230 words / day!) … That’s a real banner month for me, and it’s not even half over!
I’m pretty happy with the wanna-be writer thing at this point, though. And I’ve got 2 other blogs that I write, so I feel like I get in some good practice there, even if it’s not “novel” writing. Just gotta get the words out there.
See you in another 4 months!
