So, 1760 words today. Felt pretty good, and I stopped while I still had some words in me–one of my little tricks for starting up the next day. Decided on the novel I am working on, an erotic novel that I have been noodling on, and masturbating to, for awhile. ;-) Did run into the complication of having the Missy text me, all excited: Mom, do you know what month it is?? NaNoWriMo! Yup, she and I have done it together in the past (tho neither of us has finished–yet.) And she wants to do it again–yay! But I had already created my “kinky writer” NaNo profile, and am writing a sex novel this year…so I can’t exactly use that profile to buddy her and record all our efforts. Looks like I have to have two profiles on the website. Gah. Oh well, I don’t want to discourage her, so, I’ll do what needs doing.
In other news, I ran across this interesting meme in The Blogging Slave called the Truth Meme. I don’t do a lot of memes, but this seems like a good one, and a way to possibly break through any writing blocks that threaten my NaNo progress. It goes like this:
Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself.
So, tomorrow I’ll start on that.
