If I fall asleep whilst writing this post, forgive me, kind reader. It's been a very long day.
NaNoWriMo: Week two kicks your butt. Or maybe it's just my butt that's feeling kicks. I mean, I'm doing ok word wise. It's just the daily set a side time to write is going to be uber challenging for me because I'm also working a million hours this week. (Woot for employment!) It took me all day to finally sit at the computer to bust out a scene or two.
Also, I feel like I've just crested this immense hill that my main character had to summit. And I'm totally scared to read what I wrote in fear that I'll read it and say, "man, my writing totally sucks rocks". So I'm just going to keep writing without revising anything, lest I quit in throws of desperation for how much I suck as a writer. Where is Stephen King when I need to ask him questions?
This is what I was thinking today as I was mopping the floors at my job: what makes a writer?
I mean, here I am, writing. Does that make me a writer? What about when I write a grocery list or a rent check. Am I a writer? Do I have to be published to be called a writer? I've not had the pleasure of publishing, aside from the daily PUBLISH POST action I do when I post these little novels of drivel. It's mind boggling. And you know what I decided whilst all that mopping? This: I've got to buy a Swiffer.
South Beach Diet: Today's temptation: Bagel chips. Also, I made sushi rice krispies for work and had to pretend that cockroaches had crawled on them so I didn't cram them into my cheeks like a squirrel. Also, my Hubs deliberately coughed all over something that was making us jones for carbs. He knows just what to do, man. So, weight loss stands at 10 lbs. I wore a shirt that used to fit like sausage casing earlier this year and was happy to see that today, it fit normal. Although it's still the color of sausage casing, which makes me think I need to rethink my wardrobe colors. So, lots of victories, both in the conquering temptations, weight loss and wearing nicely fitting shirts. Sweet. And thank God that the first two weeks are almost up.
I'm going to bed.
