Friday Quizzage, The Return!

Your rainbow is shaded orange, brown, and black.

What is says about you: You are a strong person. You appreciate the roughness of nature. You feel closer to people when you understand their imperfections. You may meet people who are afraid of you.

Write? Right!

I had a most successful time at this evening's write-in. Not only did I win one word war (yay for prizes!), I got in 5000+ words on the day, and ::drumroll::

I passed 50K for the month! I'm currently looking a green bar (if you know NaNoWriMo, you know what I mean) and a total word count of 50,077. And you know what? I'm not even close to done. When I'm finished happy dancing, I may weep. LOL

Come Write-in!

Hey there. Sorry to have vanished. It's just that I'm once again participating in NaNoWriMo. That's National Novel Writing Month, for those who don't know. I've been churning out words like a Dutch dairy maid in a 19th century comic opera. Get it? Churn? Okay so it's a good thing I'm not trying to write stand-up comedy.

I'm doing pretty well so far. ::quickly knocks on wood:: I crossed over the 40K mark yesterday evening. If I stay on pace, I'll make 50K this weekend. We'll see... Part of that attempt will take place at an official write-in on Thursday evening. I'll be joining my fellow WriMos at a local coffee shop, Cafe Van Gogh, in Wedgewood from 6 - 9 pm. The lovely owner has generously agreed to remain open three hours later than usual that night just for us. So, if you're in the nieghbourhood and feel like stopping by to wave the flag of moral support and/or get yourself a fabulous cuppa java, please do! And if you're NaNoing yourself, bring that laptop along and join in. There will be word wars and fabulous prizes to be won! And did I mention the delicious coffee? Yeah. Mmm...coffee.

Hope to see you there!
