An update {on NaNoWriMo}

If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin.  – Ivan Turgenev

 I’m on my bed, cocooned in a blanket with my dog curled up beside me. There’s a cat purring nearby.  I don’t know exactly where, but I can hear her.  The sky outside is gray and it’s going to rain later, and it’s perfect-for-writing weather.  

tumblr_meiv8lmZo21rj8s0yo1_500Day twelve of NaNoWriMo, and I’m eight thousand words behind.

I could blame Austin Town and Ghost Along the Brazos.  I could blame schoolwork and writer’s block and my jobs.

Or I could just say, “Hey, I may be eight thousand words behind, but.  I have eleven thousand words that I didn’t have on October 31st.”

Also.  I can recover from this and still kick this challenge’s butt.  I’ve done it before and I will probably definitely do it again.

Ready.  Set.  Write.
