Procrastination, Guilt, and Too Much Sugah!!!
In order to get out of writing my book for NaNoWriMo, I designed a cover for my book. Yeah, scroll back up and take a gander. Go on, I'll wait.
Good! You're back! I missed you.
Right after designing that, my computer's battery died. It's a MacBook, and if you know anything about Mac's chargers, you know they're hinky. We're on our fourth and it's misbehaving. If this one goes, Steve Jobs is going to get a strongly worded letter from me. Even though I had my computer plugged in all night on the charger, it was down to around 30% this morning. Excellent news.
So, my battery died and I couldn't write. Seriously. That's the truth.
Have you ever heard writing's hard? It is. I'd rather eat chocolate buttercream frosting left over from Halloween. So, that's what I did. There were only about two tablespoons left, but that's enough sugar to make me feel icky and guilty about all of those calories. How's a person supposed to write with an icky tummy?
I, once again, find my self blogging about not being able to write. I'm sure if I had a therapist, she'd have a field day with that one.
7,163 words down, 42,837 to go. According to NaNoWriMo's stats page, I'll finish sometime around December 26. I better get to work.
