Go, Muse, Go!
fyca will beat me up on her way back to Seattle if I don't hit 25K today, so I'm aiming for 27K so that I can meet her goal without breaking my golden streak of underachieving at NaNo. I have a plan!
1. I can write about 1000 potentially pointless words in an hour, as determined by the last hour. I even took about 90 seconds to answer a glee-bomb phone call from sister K, during which I hit the space bar over and over so that Write or Die wouldn't make horrible shrieking noises at me. Yay!
2. I bought black tea. It's too cold for iced tea in my apartment, so if I make hot tea at the top of the hour and then sip it as it cools while writing, I can maintain a steady stream of caffeine. WRITING FUEL!
3. When I hit the end of the hour with at least 1000 words, I can run around with dog, make tea, check in with the internet, and answer fyca's latest "WELL? WELL?" text message(s). Her name will eventually appear in the acknowledgments of a rather mediocre novel, I predict!
Next time you see me, I will have MOAR WORDS!
