I have finally figured it out. Amber is going to force me to success if it kills both of us. I just know it. It’s Day 5 of NaNoWriMo and I have almost 8,000 words so far. I worked hard yesterday to reach my 16k word goal, but I did it. And if I hadn’t been about to fall asleep on my keyboard, I would have kept going. I was lucky to reach that goal, too. Especially when I deliberately procrastinated by texting Amber about what Draco had done to Anna’s twin brother. Oh yeah!!! Anna has a twin brother, Alex, and…well, I can’t tell you what happened. You have to wait. But it’s sooo good. Or it will be when the scene is finished. So, okay. I texted Amber about that and how I now have a playlist for Draco and Anna on Spotify. Then, she texted back about not being able to find me on Spotify to follow me…and well, the next hour was spent trying to find each other on Spotify. (By the way, Spotify, you need to fix that because it sucks.)
Amber and I get into a lot of trouble at writing group, sometimes. But, we’re fun. Which is sooo odd because we’re like total opposites. But I LOVE her. She cracks me up, and I have a serious lack of fun (in a grown-up way, I mean) in my life right now. Honestly, everyone needs an Amber. She’s inspired me, too. She keeps getting sent motivational pics for NaNo and posting them on her blog. So, this morning I got online and found one to send to her. Why not? And then I just spent 15 minutes looking up writing memes. (Writers know how to procrastinate better than anyone!) And I thought I’d share a few of my favorites on my blog today. Especially since I have nothing better to discuss, and I REALLY must get some housework in before I get back to work. Draco and Anna and Alex are waiting.
Oh, and did I mention, I’m writing backwards? Yeah, apparently this book has decided to begin with the ending and work itself back to the beginning. Whatever works, right? And if you’d like to look me up on Spotify (it should work now) I’m peaseblossym. Hope you’re having a great Wednesday!
Now for the memes!
