Finished my NaNo story. It came through at 50900 or 51045 (depending on whose word count I use) and I feel okay about it.

I'm going to hit the library today, picking up a book for the first time in ages, and then I'll probably start on my Magi project soon (while the creative juices are still flowing!)

An 1800 word sex scene involving dom/sub relationships & cross-dressing?

You people have really influenced my writing.

My word count & I thank you very much.
cmk418: (NaNo)
Just thought I'd drop a quick 'hello' to my f-list before I'm pulled under the depths of NaNo. The briefest of updates:

Happy about the Cardinals winning the World Series.
Still employed.
Thrilled about the request I'm writing for Oz Magi.
7K words into my novel and I want to get another 1000 at least by the end of the night.
Looking forward to seeing my beloved Blackhawks in St Louis next week.

Just validated NaNo. Barely over with 50006. But done for now!!!!!

The good news is that I actually like what I wrote this year, so I'll more than likely revisit it and play around with it later on.

The better news is that I can write something new and separate from the NaNo project and be guilt-free about it.

The best news is that I'm now free to watch the hockey game tonight without having to scramble in during commercial breaks to add words. (Or if the guys frustrate me to the point of having to change the channel, I can always watch a little "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer")

Test results, etc. )

In a little over 11 hours, I will be headed to Chicago for a couple days of R&R. I really don't know why I don't do this more often, because after four months of being around my family, I need a break.

NaNo is going all right. I haven't written today, but I'm up to 17K words so far.

I have a thing for ritual and the annual selecting of [ profile] oz_magi prompts is one of them. Sit there with the list and an ink pen drawing little arrows to the prompts that I like and think I can write. It's fun being able to take part every year although by December 15 (mark your calendars, folks), I will probably be going through the annual ritual of "What the heck am I going to write for Magi?"

Work is a little bit iffy right now, and I'm glad to be leaving it for a couple of days. They are going to be combining two departments in one space - not sure when it's going to happen and they really haven't where we admin temps are going to fit into the whole scheme of things. Although one flow chart did seem to list the title of Customer Service Support Manager for essentially what I have been doing for the past year. No word yet on if I'll be collecting a manager's salary soon, but it's highly unlikely.

The Blues (local hockey team) are playing extremely well, as are the L.A. Kings. Not so much my beloved Blackhawks, but there's still a lot of season left. (Although if they don't win when I'm at the game on Wednesday, I'll be supremely peeved.

I skipped about 50 messages to find that, yes, indeed, OZ Magi is open for the year. You can find the instructions here.

Right now, I'm so exhausted that I can hardly think of an idea for it. I fought with a bout of stomach flu/food poisoning all day yesterday and haven't eaten anything since yesterday morning. It's not that I'm feeling particularly hungry, but I also didn't sleep well all night so I'm ridiculously tired right now.

And if I wasn't in a stupid, stubborn "must start my NaNo novel at midnight" mood, I probably would do that.

... that a simple punch to the nose would give life to a story?

*shakes head and is off to write some more*
cmk418: (Mad Men - Peggy)
24K+ done on the NaNo project. Feeling okay about it right now, but I don't know how much plot I'm going to have after the next big plot point (major 3rd act issues, folks).

Loved the Mad Men finale last night and now I want spoilers ahead )

There's another Oz-centric thing I have in mind too, but I don't want to say anything just in case I don't get to it.

Man, I hope Jonathan Toews gets healthy soon because the Blackhawks are lost without him.
