a NaNoWriMo 2012 Blog (and beyond…)
In case you live in a box or don’t live in the relative area of the north east, apparently we’re supposed to get a bit of a storm in the next couple of days. And by a bit of a storm, apparently it is going to be a blizzard.
Now that I’ve informed all my readers, the appropriate response is to apparently panic because we never have storms like this. Never. That’s why there were lines into the street to get gas today and why there were only two carts at the grocery store that were unused. This is full on panic time apparently, but I’m just not one of those people. If I lose power for a significant period, that will start to get me annoyed and looking for a solution. Otherwise, I’ll hunker down, enjoy some hot chocolate and tell the kids to be quiet while I get through work tomorrow.
I do quite enjoy the snow and I’m looking forward to walking down to the park on Saturday with the kids and forcing them to endure minutes of unbridled snowball fights, but I’ve got to get through the workday first. Saturday should be money though. Nothing like two feet of pure snowball power…
I blame the lack of progress on the hype of the storm. It isn’t true of course, but I haven’t had much progress anyway. I’m making some progress and if I am not done by the end of the month, I will be very disappointed, but it has been difficult to get into Jacoby Figurine again. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that my f key seems to be on the fritz and is pissing me off… It’s the little things… that really get under my skin.
I’m still making my way through chapter 6, which was originally the 3rd chapter. It is going quickly when I set down to work on it, but it is also a bloated chapter and tries to do too much, and not anything to do with the main arcs of the story. So basically, it is a lot of fluff and not so much substance. I am working on fixing that.
So, if you are slated to get some snow tomorrow and Saturday, get out and enjoy it. Don’t drive in it if you don’t have to obviously, but do enjoy it. It may never come back. After all, we never have storms like this…
