Camp Nano, day 5

Well, I had today off work…never a bad thing..and today it was a really good thing.  Gorgeous weather, right around 75 degrees, breezy, sunny…perfect weather.  I stayed up a little late last night and ended up sleeping in until 7…whew…that’s really sleeping in for me.  I sat down at my desk to check up on my friends while I ate breakfast, then decided to write a little on my novel before I had to go run some errands.  Managed to get in about 500 words before I had to head out.

After I got back home, I fixed lunch and sat down and watched “Days” (I know, I know…) then decided to do a little more writing.  I ended up doing 3 separate sessions today and got in 3254 words!!!  Really!  So I’m up to 12,589 words after 5 days.  I’m pretty excited about that.  And today’s writing was fun.  Kind of weaving some of the background info of some of the older characters (really, I guess these folks are the parents of the main characters) into the story.  Working more on developing some of the descriptive scenes in the story.  Dialogue comes easily to me, sometimes to the detriment of the scenes, I think.  So I’m really trying to add a little more description to my story.  We’ll see how that goes…

I’ve been communicating with the ladies in my cabin…everyone’s very encouraging and supportive…it’s nice to have a small group to share the writing woos and woes with (I know, I’m such a dork…).  I mean, the people I work with have a mild interest in what I’m doing, but the ladies in my cabin are trying to accomplish the same thing that I’m working on…kind of cool~

All in all, a nice, productive, peaceful day…ahh…

Spook lives a tough life

I know, I know…I do way too many posts about my little Spooky girl…but she’s just so darn cute and entertaining…I didn’t get a picture today, but she was rolling around inside that canvas cat box thing I bought her a while back.  Rolling around so much that she tipped it over, then climbed out looking at me like I’d knocked it over with her inside.

Spook in the laundry basket

I’ve found her sleeping in the laundry basket several times…cute…at least the clothes in the basket still need to be washed, not like she’s sleeping on a pile of clean clothes.  Ha!  I put them away as soon as I fold them specifically so she won’t sleep on that pile of clean clothes…so there, little crazy cat!  The weather is gorgeous today so I’ve got the windows open…walked into the kitchen and she was sleeping in the kitchen window, in the sun, with the birds right outside the window at the feeder.  Maybe they realize she can’t get to them altho she does do that little cat chatter thing at them every once in  a while.  And she woke me up last night meowing, pacing back and forth across my pillow, around my head. As soon as I lifted the comforter up, she darted under the blankets, laid down by my feet and then held on to one of my feet with her front paws.  Of course, that’s always a scary thing.  If I move, is she going to scratch me?  Ahh…she has me right where she wants me, doesn’t she?  Poor little mistreated girl.
