#NaNoWriMo, Day 8

I woke up sick this morning and ended up calling in to work. Then I slept in until something like 1 PM, soaked in sweat. Apparently I spiked a pretty high fever over night. It took me a while to get my brain in order to write, but you can’t exactly call in sick to NaNoWriMo. It just moves on without you! When I finally sat down to write, my progress was slow. It wasn’t until I got over my daily minimum that I started to get on a roll. By that time it was late enough that I wanted to find a place to stop, but each scene kept demanding to be finished. By the time I finally wound down, I had racked up another 2533 words, bringing my grand total up to 18293.

18293 / 50000

Today’s character tortures have been much less physical and much more personal. Well, except for the moment when he almost pees his pants while getting a “lift” across town. Then there is a moment of peace, followed by four lovely social gaffes in a row! When this character puts his foot in it, he really puts his foot in it!

Unfortunately, no more Killer Clockwork Budgies today. Maybe tomorrow.

I have considered posting small excerpts with these daily diaries. Would you folks like to see some? I’d like to give you a taste of the action without being all “best parts of the movie in the trailer”.

NaNo, NaNo, folks. Or if you didn’t make your word count, Shazbot!

I’m off to bed.
