NaNoWriMo Day 14
It’s a weird day; a day full of inconsistencies. For one, I’m in a great mood, and when I’m in a great mood I sing. Unfortunately, I’m singing Christmas carols. It’s also like, 75 degrees here and nowhere near *official* Christmas Weather—which is snow. And so I’m singing Christmas carols, and “Spring Cleaning” (what little sweeping and wiping I felt like doing until I decided I’d had enough), and now I’m eating ice cream. (sigh) Christmas carols and ice cream and warm weather . . . it’s so wrong—on so many levels. Oh yeah, and our milk was partially frozen when we bought it, so every glass I pour is full of these little ice crystals. It’s strange—but I really, really like it.
What’s even better? I know what I’m going to write about today, and I think another fight is involved, which means my word count is going to skyrocket (or I’ll at least hit my daily quota really fast). I think I should write a book that’s just one, huge fight. I swear I would finish it in a weekend. So, I’m feeling very chipper and very productive—hopefully that will continue throughout the remainder of the day.

Laurels: to the amazing YA Writer John Green for explaining the issues behind the Writer’s strike on his vlog (http://www.brotherhood2.com/). I can’t become a member of the Writer’s Guild until after my book comes out in the spring, but I fully support my fellow writers who aren’t getting paid for the work they’ve done. Writers are People, too!
