nanowrimo 2010

(no subject)

I can't sleep for some reason. I've been watching Godzilla 200 on the theory that if anything on the planet can put me to sleep it's a Godzilla movie. I was wrong.

Something in the night is stirring, though. The dog has been up barking twice this evening and has patrolled the house a couple of times as well. My nerves have rubbed off on her or hers on me, I guess.

MP3 and salvation

My computer seems to be becoming less friendly every day. Thank whatever gods there be that I have a goodly supply of MP3s. I'm listing to Billie Holiday today. I still have my Jazz to listen too, at least.

Writing is going badly today. I sat down for a sustained effort for the first time in a couple of days and after nearly an hour at the keyboard discovered I had composed 894 words (according to the Word spell-checker). It is quite a comedown from my rate of composing at a rate of better than 40 words a minute.

I seem to be losing ground in lots of areas.

I originally put down 2400 minutes this morning. I was calculating my old rate and put down the wrong number.

Well, I got something done

SC has been bugging me to provide a graphic representation of his global conquest. I finally broke down and gave it a shot.
