WORDS!  
6281 ★ 25000 (25.12%)


I GOT THIS.

Okay, technically I have written 2 months out of a 13-month story, so maybe 25% is a little optimistic, and I have no clue what my next scene should even be, but THERE ARE WORDS NOW IN THE DOCUMENT, HOORAY.

***

And the date... <3 to everyone. My dad was a block away 10 years ago, and we got lucky. When we finally got phones up long enough for me to learn he was alive, he told me to go back to studying, to give in as little as possible. He comes from Israel, where terrorism is a part of life in a way that's almost impossible for me to understand ("How do you just go to the grocery store every week knowing that you might get blown up?" "You need groceries, don't you?").

God bless all the first responders, and the families of those who couldn't make the same phone call my dad did, and everyone who has suffered so much in the last 10 years because of that day. I'm so grateful to be American - may we all be even a little bit as brave, selfless and remarkable in our lives as those men and women who ran into a crumbling building to save people they didn't even know. That's the story I want to tell my children - not that there are people out there who hate us and want to destroy us, but that there are people right next to us who might give everything to save our lives. <3 <3 <3

(I've thrown in the towel. Maybe for Sparktober. Maybe for NaNo. Maybe when it says it's ready to be written and I start writing it.)

(I miss chatting with you! <3)

SPARKTOOOOOBER!!!!!! OMG SPARKTOBER >>>> EVERYTHING.

I miss chatting with you too!! Work has just been in-sane during the week and now I'm in seclusion writing this Big Bang. I'm out of seclusion for the moment because I'm trying to decide if I can have caffeine at 6 pm on a work night or not. Probably not. But. WRITING DEMANDS.

Also, good job throwing in the towel. I can't even get my act together to do that.

<3 to you, my friend.

Now, go answer my Brown questions and then get back to writing!
Little Red: xf - hey monnie!mylittleredgirl on September 12th, 2011 04:16 am (UTC)
OH RIGHT! I shut off my email not realizing I was leaving you in the lurch!!

So my memory for these matters is a little rusty, but I think Diman Hall is a sophomore dorm if you want her to have a single or a regular double room. If she's got friends and can live in a suite, you should totally put her in Grad Center, because that place is freaking nuts. It was built in the 60s when they were scared of riots, so all the hallways jag sharply to keep people from... running? Starting a stampede? Who the heck knows!

As for where to have a picnic in the middle of winter... in Rhode Island... um, NOT OUTSIDE. Maybe they could sneak up to one of the upper floors of the Sci-Li (Sciences Library), a concrete monolith where I loved to study because very often you could have a whole floor to yourself, haha. She would do most of her research at The Rock, which houses the humanities books, but that's too populated to spread out a picnic blanket and not get busted.
fyca: AG & RPfyca on September 12th, 2011 04:43 am (UTC)
Very nice! Thank you! They will probably have to go to the Sci-Li, and Moni will probably be very familiar with it as she's been reading a shit-ton of stuff on time travel and crazy other science-y stuff that I can only vaguely mention in the story.
