Short day

Though I did get right into it, so that was nice. My lovely husband needs the computer at the moment though so I'll just call it a day.

Yay for writing

I actually wrote again. I was getting really discouraged so I just figured I'd do what I can and forget about those last... uh... 5 days? My handy NaNoWriMo spreadsheet says I need to write about 2100 words a day now to make 50k by the end of the month. Guess we'll see. I'll just be happy with myself if I make a significant effort.

OMG DOUBLE DIGITS.

Below the cut is the continuation of where I had to stop writing because I got distracted by a fork or something.

Some disjointed writing

I've been having a hard time the last few days. I really need to make writing a priority on Sundays. Last week I just tried to fit it in wherever and got nowhere. Same with Monday. Tuesday, I was out sick from work so I figured it'd be a great time to get things done but the siren song of the internet called to me. Today my wrists are complaining about being on the laptop while my lovely husband uses the desktop to play WoW. I'm just going to count today and yesterdays' writings together for ease and try to get back on track tomorrow. It doesn't help that I've been busy enough at work that I can't write there. :P

So, as the title says, there's a prologue of sorts here and continuing with where I was going before. Suppose it's better than nothing.

Part Two, where Laine gets dissapointed

Handy aforementioned wordcount tool puts me at 1749. A different word count tool says I'm at 1685. Word says 1644. I'm taking the middle one so I don't feel like I'm cheating.

First ~1800 words

Sidenote: Wtf? I used the wordcount in Word and got less than 1700. This handy wordcount tool says I'm at 1862. Yes please!

Also as an aside: Piggy, this is my MayNoWriMo stuff. I'd definitely like it if you read it and gave feedback but it's still in it's raw form so it might be confusing or disjointed or whatever. I'm really doing my best not to edit as I go, otherwise I'll get caught up in doing that.
