NaNoWriMo Camp

Oh my goodness, I am one tired chicklet tonight.  I had to close last night (work) then work a mid-shift today.  The problem with those darn mid-shifts is you don’t have time to do anything before work and you don’t have time to do anything after work…boo!!


Well, okay…so that’s not entirely true…I did write a little over 600 words in my novel this morning and another 1000+ tonight, so still hit my goal for the day.  Right now I’m at 18126 words altogether…most of it’s…you know…less than spectacular.  But some of it’s not bad.  I’m just amazed at how much writing I’m doing.


If I can write this much while participating in Camp NaNoWriMo, why can’t I do this on a regular basis?  Seriously.  Why do I need external motivation to do something that I really, really want to do?  Something to mull over, huh?  But…the really cool thing is…I’m doing it!



Thank the Lord (and Al Gore) fer that newfangled internet thing…

Yes indeedy, this here world wide web thang is mighty handy!  Why I don’t know if most of y’all ‘members havin’ to go down to the BMV and spend half a yer day thar waitin’ to get yer new plates or not, but I surely do.  Next to havin’ to go to the lady doctor, that was the day of the year that I dreaded the most.

Now, I don’t know if y’all know this or not, but you can renew yer plates without ever havin’ to set foot in that daggone BMV place.  I raise my right hand and swear on little ole Spook’s life, I’m tellin’ ya the truth.  And it’s all ’cause a that big ole internet thang.  Fer sure!  Ya just fire up that ole computer, do a little bit a typin’, and bam!!  Ya gots yer plates all renewed, just like that!

Now I surely don’t mean to mislead ya, ya still gotta wait fer yer little ole sticker to come to ya in the mail, but that ain’t no big thang, I’m thinkin’.  Not when ya compare it to what it was like back in the olden times when ya had to sit thar on them hard old chairs just a waitin’ and waitin’ fer ’em ta call yer name. No sirree bob…when that ole Al Gore invented the big ole world wide web, well…I swan…that was one of the bestest inventions of all time…so I just wanna give a big thank ya to the man, yes indeedy!!
