What's Up - Week 2

Randomness to get me through Nanowrimo:  

1.  “Don’t worry”, ranks up there right next to “calm down”.  Some people…  Oh and no worries, I am not worried or need to calm down, just something heard on my commute to work today.  I felt like sharing an eye roll with the woman being given such great advice, but I try not to make eye contact with strangers. 

2.  I want to read all the time.  Even this month where most of my spare time (ha, spare time, as if) goes to writing for nano, I want to read.  I make deals with myself that if I only get my word count in for the day in the morning, I could have some time to read at night.  Or, the one that kinda messes me up and gets me in trouble:  If I read for an hour now, I have to spend at least an hour writing later.  Oh that one is too funny, as I will crack open the book and any time I had is spent lost in the fiction of that story.  I’ve just wasted the day for writing.  It’s a problem.

3.  Reviews.  I need reviews for my books.  I assume other authors do as well, yet, I’m really lazy and will only do the star part of the review.  I hardly ever write an actual review.  I’m a hypocrite.  I admit it.     

4.  I am currently on word count at 4200 words.  Granted that is only for the first two days of nano, but I have set aside one hour tonight at 9:30 p.m. to get my 2000 words in today and hopefully all week long.  We will see how well I do.  I get cranky and tired by the time Thursday and Friday hit.  Maybe I should start drinking soda again, just for nano.  It’s a thought…


  1. Calm down, Courtney. :P (Sorry, couldn't resist.) Sometimes I say "No worries" instead of "You're welcome/Not a problem," which is an Australian-ism, but nothing quite makes stress levels rise like "Calm down" or "Don't worry." Makes me want to headbutt someone.

    Reviews are really hard to write! I either really enjoy it, or I don't. ;) (The End.)

  2. Well CarrieBoo stole what I was going to say so I won't even attempt to say "Calm down" or "Don't Worry." ha

    I don't really enjoy doing reviews unless I just loved the book. When I don't, I find it extremely hard. And don't worry, you'll get a review from me as soon as I finish reading Shadow Fire. I don't read fast or all the time like you! I'm too busy watching the boob tube.
