Blood from a stone!

Good lord, getting over 14K almost killed me. GOOD NIGHT, MOON! Work in the morning will come waaaay too soon!

ETA because I can't forget this:

Two things from today's phone conversation home related to how my father sees me in regards to writing:

Dad: How's this section of your novel going?
Me: Getting better. I've made the interactions between the two characters more explosive.
Dad: Oh, so hardcore porn instead of softcore porn?

Also, my dad ran into my high school principal today, and when the principal asked what I'm doing, my dad said, in all seriousness, that I'm a novelist. HA.

Me: Er, that's pushing it a bit, isn't it?
Dad: What? How many novels do you need to write to be a novelist? You're writing a novel!

It's somehow perfectly awesome and so very my dad that he considers a hobby creative project as so important that it would never even occur to him to mention what I'm doing for work.

He really is. I feel a little bit like I'm a showoff when I post about how ridiculously cool my parents are, but I'm just so tickled by them sometimes. Crazy artist parents FTW!

They are, aren't they!?!?!??? I like to brag about them.

My dad went on to tell me about how I should totally send my novel out to the scientist who recently came up with the plan to send a one-way trip to Mars, because he could possibly just love it and want to be "one of those people you thank in the acknowledgments for cleaning up your science!" Because my dad? WOULD TOTALLY DO THAT.

I wish I had a dad period, much less one who rawks like that.

My mother used to say my writing was a waste of paper. She's not here to discourage me any more. That, and, well...I write on the computer, so it would have to be "waste of disk space" now. ;p

It's official, your dad is AWESOME. I mean, mine's pretty good in comparison, but still


and 14K? I'm slowly building up to 11K. (It will NEVER be finished before the end of November...maybe December if I really work at it... Hmmm)
