NaNo Day 16 – Gimping Along

Number 16

I must admit. Tonight is starting off quite slowly…er…well really I haven’t started at all. It has been a long day.

Was up at 7 and then while eating breakfast there was a loud BANG! on my front window. I look up and see this plume of feathers everywhere. A bird flew into the window, but I knew it had to be a bit one for the sound of the impact. Surprised my window was cracked!

I went outside and looked around and didn’t see the bird at first. When I turned to go back inside there he was. Laying on the ground was a partridge, breathing, but clearly out of sorts and confused at what happened. So I go back inside and call the Maine Game Wardens to figure out what I should do. I was told to wait an hour to see if the bird came back around and if he/she did, and did not injure anything, it would fly off on it’s own. So I wanted and checked on the bird about an hour later and as soon as it saw me, it flew off. Good ending there!

Shortly after that it was off to the vet for two dogs. One was up to date on shots, the other needed everything. Got that done and then picked up a friend from church and brought her home to spend the day with us. We enjoyed good food and watched Garfield: The Movie which we all loved! I can never get enough of Garfield! lol.

It wasn’t until about 7:30 or so when we got back home after taking our friend back to her place. It is after 9PM Eastern.

Listening to Pandora and Elvis is singing “Suspicious Minds”. Perfect time period music for my story.

Hmm Well, I guess I should go and get writing.

I just want to say, “Thank you. Thank you very much.” for reading along! 🙂

NaNo Is Coming!! Do You Have A Story Ready?

Oh, boy! National Novel Writing Month is coming soon!  Just six days away!!! Ahhh! I’m so excited! Like you couldn’t tell, right?

I have been working on the synopsis for my novel Facade which I had started during Camp NaNo a couple of years ago, but never got too far with it. In that time I have implemented some changes so I’ll be doing some rewriting for NaNo this year. I am very excited and can’t wait to see what comes of this novel set in the 1930’s & 1950’s. It will be interesting to learn the lingo and culture of that ear.

My husband shocked me yesterday and told me he had a story idea and that he wanted to try his hand at NaNo! He has never written stories and works as a computer programmer, so this should be interesting. I listened to his idea (involving the USS Maine) and think he has a really good story. I can’t wait to read the story when he is finished with it!!

If you’d like to be my writing buddy for NaNo here is my link: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/jimonroe

Counting down the days until NaNo!

Best of luck everyone!
