2,851

Writing&Drinking

This is what writer’s block at 2,851 words looks like on a Monday night….

It’s the end of day 2 of NaNoWriMo and I have a million thoughts swirling through my head … few of which have to do with the story I’m working on for the writing marathon.

I need 1000 more words for my story tonight. Instead I’m here. Blogging.

And I’m starting to think that this is all just a silly excuse to take a picture of my laptop and vodka tonic, (which really are so pretty by candlelight!) and write about writer’s block.

Or more precisely, ramble about writer’s block.

Which is still writing, right?

Coincidentally, my friend Yves just emailed me the following perfect illustration of how he’s feeling about this NaNoWriMo stuff. I sheepishly admit, as I watch my “predicted word count” ticker at the bottom of my Firefox drop slowly toward 40k–far, far from the goal of 50k–that I am right there along with him.

Hmmmm…interesting….this post now comprises 161 words. Back to it. Dammit.

And if not, there’s always more vodka in the freezer.

177.
