NaNoWriMo Day 19

I’m updating early today, so I have more *legitimate* writing time later. First, I can’t figure out what this weather is doing. It was supposed to warm up, but it’s still kind of chilly outside, and it’s all gloomy. I think it’s about to rain. Second, these terrible things are happening. I can’t get my laptop charger to work, and my darling child just threw my darling husband’s cell phone in his drink. On top of that, there’s a *cold* going around. DH has it now, but I’m positive that I feel one coming on—and no, that’s not my hypochondria talking (is that even a word?). I am, however, drinking an Orangeade from Andy’s—which plays a crucial role in my new book, One Wish (another shameless plug, I know). I hope it has enough Vitamin C in it to keep me germ-free (or germ unaffected) through the holidays.

In writing news, I’ll start today only 400 words behind, which is nothing short of a miracle since I was *exhausted* last night. I wrote late, and arrived in bed at an amazing 1:15am. And yet I still couldn’t manage to break 30,000 words. That will happen today….

P.S. Is it normal for a two-year-old to *want* to sit in the corner?

Time: 12:50pm

1: Orangeade consumed
1: brownie consumed

I am not sure if it is normal for a kid to want to sit in the corner or not but being an introvert, I tend to do it quiet a bit. Then again, I have been accused of not being normal so I don't know. :-)

I do know dropping and throwing cell phones in drinks are perfectly normal.

Hope you and the hubby feels better soon.
