Well, I wanted to give you a quick update here before I get going on my day. I weighed in at 182.2 which is .2 lbs higher than Thursday, but still lower than before I left Milwaukee. I also started my period yesterday, so I'm blamin' it on that, and thinking I'm actually a little lighter when it's all said and done. ;)
I actually started writing last night for NaNoWriMo. I hit 1411 words, which is really making me happy right now. I just got out of the shower and I'm going to go blow dry my hair, slap some makeup on my face and cart my laptop over to Starbucks to write some more.
I actually "technically" am not doing NaNoWriMo the way it's supposed to be done. They consider a novel to be a work of fiction. I'm writing a memoir and fictionalizing it a bit. I'm what's known as a "NaNo Rebel." Yeah... I'm okay with that. And since some of you have asked, the title is (currently): The Panderings of a Compulsive Obsessive. I'll share an excerpt with you guys soon!
So for those of you doing this, what's your goal? Do you want to get published? Do you think you could get published? Or are you doing it just for the thrill of "I did it!"? Personally, I can't do anything without thinking... HUGE. As I'm writing this, I'm thinking of what questions I might be asked in a book interview. Or by a reader. At least I have a while to come up with some answers.
Anyone know a good agent? ;)
Oh. And here's a picture of me and my Mom in our matching monkey footie pajamas. :) Speaking of writers, she's the best one I know. She's already written a novel (a real one, my favorite book ever, and no it's not because she's my Mother and I'm biased, it's because the book is fucking amazing. Sorry Mom, it deserved the "fucking" before amazing, 'cause it is.) and she's working on her second now.
*Note: Thanks so much for all the interest in my Mom's book! Her first novel has not been published yet, so I can't plug it for you guys to go pick it up. But I can guarantee as soon as it does get published, I'll be sharing the crap out of it!
