Free to Work Some More - Rock, Paper, Puppies!

Oct. 26th, 2006 11:32 am Free to Work Some More

I am relieved! I've dug out of my enormous pile of extra work and can see the sunlight. *freedom* If anyone comes near my office with an "Oh P, can you" or "I need a little...," they might get squirted with a squirt gun. Don't think I'm joking either! *takes aim*

On the home front, I'm giving NaNoWriMo the old, college try. Don't ask me why! *iamquitenuts* November is always a terrible month for me both work and family-wise.

But I'm still doing it! It'll be interesting to see how much I can squeeze out. It will definitely be better than not much at all. I will at least plan to make my 100 words a day goal. Since I have to restart and all.

This weekend, I'll decide what my new project will be for it. I have plenty of ideas pining away for me. I just need to revisit them and see what motivates me the most. Anyone else doing the NaNoWriMo thing? What is your project going to be for it?

I also have to polish a couple of poems to round out a chapbook I want to submit. Not a lot of hope there, since poetry is such a hard sell. But I'm tenacious and don't know the meaning of the word "quit."

Maybe that's where my puppy gets it!?!

Hey Bay-bee!

Been not blogging because I've been *gasp* writing and doing the *double gasp* work parts. You can mosey over to my blog to read about it.

I'll be writing alongside you for November, but not officially doing the challenge. Working on one of the zillion WIPs and it was well-started.

And, I know you know the meaning of "quit". You just choose not to do it! :-D

Glad work's more normal (at least, I hope it is. After all, you wrote this a week ago...I know how fast things can change).

Oh, and remember, it's not the destination, it's the journey. So you have to restart Club100. At least you a) did however many days until you missed one, and b) are starting again. It's the perseverance that counts. As *cough* I seem to remember, uh, YOU telling me. :-D

Hang tough, talk to the hand, and keep on truckin'. And writing. (Oh, and, blasting from the past here...Blackie says "hay, whassup? As in gimme some hay"...yes, I WAS clearing out old files, why do you ask? ;-D)

Welcome back to the Land of the Live (as in Live Journal - lame)!

I'm not sure if I am officially Nanoing. I decided I wanted to finish a WIP and not something new. But I am using it as a motivator. The WIP is changing dramatically though, but the change solves the problems I had with it originally. The concept/idea is the same, but how it gets there is changing.

Awww, Blackie!!!

Blackie says to get yourself into gear and hurry up and get him his hay, woman!

And, I'm with you on the changing of the WIPs. The one I'm working on now I haven't really changed. There are a couple, though, that need to change a lot, so I'm dealing with the "no changes, just complete" WIPs first, then the "minor but extensive changes" WIPs. Then I will look at the "great idea, need to totally rework it" WIPs. I should be done in, oh, 5 years or so...LOL!

Keep me and Blackie posted on how you're doing!
