Damn Cats

My dining room table is, in rare status, completely cleaned off. This morning I'd been using my laptop on the table, and when I packed it up, I left my wireless adapter there. Since I wasn't taking it with me to the cafe (the better to avoid distraction), I decided not to leave it on the table. It's a cat playground. They bat down whatever's up there, then bat it all over the house, until we can't find it when we're looking. So I moved it to the desk.

When I came home four hours later, I looked for it.

And looked, and looked, and looked. I didn't trust my memory, so I looked in EVERY POSSIBLE place it could be.

Until I found it. In a paper bag on the floor at the base of the desk.

Damn Cats.

38 THOUSAND???? In 13 DAYS?? What are you doing???? Or not doing???

Well, I don't have a day job. That has to be kept in mind.

Today I went to B&N and did 6083 words in three hours, which is the most I've done all month. That's twice as much as I usually do in double the time. I have to say, that lack of distraction is a BIG help.

There's also the fact that I'm trying to finish the entire book by 11/30, not just 50K for NaNo.

Finally, posts like "38 THOUSAND???? In 13 DAYS??" make me feel all warm and fuzzy. :)

WOW. 6,000 words in 3 hours! 25 pages or something, huh? Are you loving the story?

I am. I'm so, so, so loving it. I have two heroes and I know who she's ending up with but it's killing me that she's not going to be with the other one.
