NaNoWriMo 2007: Day 12 – Our situation has not improved.


Today has thrown me for a bit of a loop. I was supposed to be working off-site all week: that has changed. I was supposed to have lunch with my soon-to-be-ex-boss: that didn’t happen. Things that were fine when I left the office in the middle of last week (I took two days off for Con on the Cob) are all sorts of not fine now. Needless to say, I didn’t get any writing done while I was scarfing down the two double cheeseburgers I picked up on the way back to the office from where I thought I’d be working all week.

Now I need to dash off to record this week’s Volcanicast at the PlanetRetcon remote studio, also known as Bob’s house. Speaking of upheaval, Wesley is out this week and possibly the following week and when we record on the 25th it’ll be at the new PlanetRetcon studio, also known as Wesley’s new apartment.

Given the status of things at work, I doubt very much I’ll be writing tomorrow at lunch time unless I find a dark corner and write longhand. There’s another write-in tomorrow at Morley Library, but will Laura kill me if I go out again? She might. She just might.

Gotta get this boat underway again somehow. Trouble is, the thing feels like an oil tanker and I’m standing on the poop deck with a broken paddle.

    There are times when I look at your creative output (including several podcasts, NaNoWriMo, this blog, and all the parenting you do), and think to myself:

    “Self, don’t you want to be just like KJ when you grow up?”

    So long as it isn’t the writing that’s holding you back, but merely the lack of time, I believe you’ll get the words out. It’s just the kind of thing I could see you doing…

    I find that I have plenty of words, but no time either. My word count is sorely behind yours, but I’m learning a lot about my writing process during this frantic dash to 50k. If I could just discipline myself to actually write everyday (which I haven’t), I’d have this thing done by the deadline.

    You’ll get there, dude. Just hang in there.

    Oh, Kris has no problem with the output. It’s just a matter of FOCUS. Ha ha. Strikes me that this contest is really meant for the single-minded people of the world.
