37,808
didn't quite make up my word count, from yesterday.  I didn't write at all yesterday, by the time I had time, it was 8pm, and I was having trouble staying awake.
Still I am pleased with the progress that I did make today, I am just finishing up now, which is way too late, but I was procrastinating getting into a scene which I didn't want to write. Even after I started writing today, I found plenty of words to stall with to keep me out of the scene, but I did eventually get there, and have written most of it.
Oh, and typing of which, I have decided that I best not make 50,000 my goal, but instead make getting to the end of the story my goal, otherwise, I might just throw all kinds of irrelevant scenes at the screen in order to keep myself from having to write the hard stuff, (whatever is painful, a.k.a sad, or makes me uncomfortable).
ugh, the research book I was reading yesterday (while my car was getting worked on), was sooo boring. Usually when I do research, I find it interesting, and inspiring, and these little light bulb sparks go off in my brain of ideas I can use, so many, like my  mind is a field of fireflies. But so far here...um one little firefly and I can't think of that much I can do with one little firefly.

P.S
You know what I love, I love that progress bar thingy they have at NaNoWriMo, I have one too, but their's is more official, and makes me feel more accomplished when I put my numbers in, and hit update. It's like magic.

ut oh, husband just went up to bed and swore, seems washing all the bed linens is only appreciated by othes if you then, remake the bed. Guess I best put the sheets on the bed!

Keep it up but do rest as well.

Mutley,

Thanks. :)
I am a bit sleeping challenged. Lately going to sleep (up to bed) and falling asleep, and staying asleep, seem like acts that require some sort of magic I have yet to acquire.

I don't think I could handle that, I can't hold my alcohol or my caffeine, even too much chocolate can make me feel ill (major bummer). I am able though to eat lots of vanilla ice cream, and feel just fine, sadly that has yet to be listed as a sleep aid, and as I am eating it, and not sleeping, clearly it never will be.
