Let the captioning begin!


Mine is "Which way is the nearest bar?" Minor cause for celebration today. It's Saturday and I have exceeded 24,000 words. It's a cinch I'll be past the halfway mark by tomorrow. That means I'll need just 2083.3 words per day. So far I seem to do 2000 words a day fairly easily between 10PM and 2AM. 500 words an hour does not seem particularly onerous. That's less than ten words a minute. Also, lest you think I'm being disciplined about this, that includes copious amounts of pacing around wondering what happens next and regular cigarette breaks. Yes, I fell off the wagon at the wedding in Miami. I'm not giving up quitting (quitting giving up? whatever) but I feel I need the extra stimulant during this process. New quit date: Dec. 1st.
One more thing: I recently went back and read what I wrote so far and you know what? The shit ain't half bad, yo! I'm a bit surprised. Anything else? Thanks to everyone for being so nice to me about my HNT posts and my life in general. I love you all, truly and not just because you like to see me naked. :-) Y'all rock harder than diamonds.

Rock harder than diamonds? That's not a catch-phrase in the book is it, because I nominate that for the Worst Pun Of The Day award.

"I knew I shoulda turned left at Alber..alber.." (damn how do you spell that?)

Hey - don't quit quitting! Kicking the habit is sooooo hard to do (I've quit four or five times) a good website for help is www.whyquit.com

Way to go on the writing - I'm not surprised that it's good, either :-)
