NaNoWriMo '07

Well, I was planning to write a big braggy post about my finished novel, complete with link to my winner's page. I've written 50,000 words. But, because I stupidly went on vacation to Jamaica in the middle of the month, I have to email the file to myself from my sister's computer, receive it, muck through my inbox o' spam to find it (while avoiding tempting offers of updated fanfics and learning conversational Spanish with just 138 words), jack up the wordcount a little to compensate for the word-eating NaNoWriMo validator, and link it to here.

And it was getting really annoying. I was feeling more and more frustrated until I called my cousin Elijah, who I don't get to see nearly enough and whom I miss dearly. We talked for maybe ten minutes, but it reminded me of what was really important in life.

Hint: it's not updating your blog.

Hint: it's not wrestling with Comcast to brag on your blog, either.


The braggy post will come, my friends, but not tonight. I'll be updating more frequently now that I have a little more time on my hands and actual writing stuff (like editing and querying) to talk about.

...and if I want to make it as a writer, I should stop ending sentences with prepostions.
