“Sir, there seems to be a massive debris field between us and NaNomia.”
“Maneuver us around it, Ensign”
“I can’t sir. It. It is surrounding the entire planet.”
“On screen.” (view screen comes on showing massive devastation obscuring the planet) “My god, what happened here”
Brainy Vulcan Annoyance “Well. Captain. I think the planets plot exploded.”
“Not the plot! There has to be a way through. Find it, Ensign. We must reach NaNomia.”
The above sums up my first week in NaNoWriMo but worry not, the good Ensign is finding his way through. I’m sitting at 7920 words for NaNo and will be adding at least 2500 more today (hopefully more). My ROWbro Kerry Meacham and honorary ROWsis Jami Gold are planned for a few word sprint sessions later this morning and throughout the day and I’ll be
write right there with them.
There have, of course, been a few twists and turns with the NaNo project, but I expected as much. I started building the storyline I’m writing in October so it is still new and shiny and watching dust motes float in the light stream from the morning sun. The kitten does the same thing. Its cute. Not so much when its ones plot, but I have some fantastic friends that are helping it along. (Thank you, Donna Newton, my incredible team leader at WWBC).
I’m up to date on Kristen’s Blogging for Brand lessons. I turned in my first full assignment earlier in the week and am waiting for Kristens awesome-dipped-in-jedi-glitter response (with 100 people in the class it does take a bit, no worries).
Ah, the treadmill. Made it 2 out of 3 this week. Yesterday, my washer died which turned our laundry room into a disaster zone of tools and “But I haven’t done my laundry yet” teen zombies. Of course, this is also where the treadmill is. New washer arrives Monday. I’ll be on the treadmill after that. Thanks to all of you that have tweeted your support, I truly appreciate it and want to let you know it does help keep me motivated.
Hope all of you have a fantastic week. Rock the ROW!
