I'm so dang tired.
Last night was the DFW region's NIGHT OF WRITING DANGEROUSLY and it was a blast
. I left work early to get some stuff done, and I showed up just before 7pm with freshly baked cookies, ranch-garlic-yummy pretzels, stickers, caffeine, and probably some other stuff that I can't remember. I logged everyone's word count at the beginning of the night, and then as people left I got their final word count, and all of us together wrote over 3 full novels. There were 32 people there, including me and Criss (who does not have a LJ but she is the ML and she is way cool), and it was so much fun. People brought lots of food and caffeine for sharing, and Criss and I ran word wars and sold plot ideas to raise money for NaNoWriMo. I only wrote 3357 words, but I finished at exactly 30,006 words, which is Day 18's goal, so I'm okay with not writing so much.
And then at 7am this morning, we left, and I crashed hardcore on my couch, only to wake up at 1:50pm for my 2-5 write-in at Coffee Haus. Jeni was the only one who came, but this was okay because it meant I didn't feel bad leaving half an hour early to go home and be brain dead.
Oh, and at Coffee Haus, there was a guy who looked like he could have been a very young John Linnell. Or maybe Linnell's cousin or something. It was weird and kind of wigged me out.
Anyways, yes. Fun times were had, much was written, and now I'm beat. I managed to fight off naps all day, but I think it's nearing bedtime as I'm having a hard time keeping my eyes open.
Oh, but before I go, you all need to go harangue Jess
, because her word count is pitiful. I've dared her to only check her word count once a week, and as of Friday night after work her word count was 10 days behind. Ridiculous! This is the girl who wrote a novel in a WEEK, and once did 100k for NaNo. I've already banned her from hooping for the next week, and if her word count is still low next Friday then it'll be another week. (I've picked a threshold, by the way, but I'm not telling her because she won't be able to check it anyways. Suffice to say she needs to type like a MADWOMAN this next week if she wants to hoop)
Anyways, yes. To bed! And then tomorrow I'm going to write at least 2000 before I go to gamestop to pick up Animal Crossing: City Folk. I cannot wait. It will be AWESOME.
