The two of these actually go hand in hand if you can believe it. How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Tell me about it in the comments, I wanna hear what your favorite pie was, who’s house you went to and what you watched. I went to one of my favorite aunt’s house, more like a mansion actually, and feasted with my mom’s side of the family. We had apple crumb, pumpkin pie, chocolate pie, pecan pie and lots of other home made goodies to try. Needless to say, the chocolate pie my momma made was my favorite. I finally got down to watching “Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving” and “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” which I like to do every year.
But, to the victory! I successfully reached 50,000 words on November 27th this year! Whoo hoo!! Now, my book is far from finished, but the editorial months won’t be upon us until January and February so I can relax and not think about those infuriating portions that aren’t finished. So now I can relax in my chair and look at my happy little winner certificate. It was super exciting for me because I had never won before and technically I finished in 26 days because I didn’t write ANYTHING on the first day. So I consider that a pretty big success. I WOULD have finished on the 23rd had there not been so much late night travel. If it had been early in the mornin, okay I could have handled that. A little tea, some wake up word sprints but no it was in the afternoon. And I get my best work done in the afternoon if I set my mind to it but I was busy driving around making sure I had everything and that everything was locked up and all that good stuff.
But I did get some writing done in the airport during layover and waiting time. I’m impatient and didn’t know how security would go so I got to the airport three hours early. It took 2 minutes to get through security so I wasted some time near the gate which was like, not even 10 feet away from security.
Even having Gail Carriger’s Changeless with me time could not go fast enough. The plane ride was two hours, layaway another hour and then the last plane was an hour before an hour drive home. Ugh long days. But I was happy to be home in familiar territory. Even though some parts of driving home were like a big box of memories being dumped on me and I was like
Yeahhh Ohio is filled with crazies. But I got to see my family and my boyfriend almost every day I have been here so that is awesome. And, yesterday was the first time ever that I have attempted Black Friday shopping. EVER. That’s really big for me considering I’m competitive for parking spots and don’t take any nonsense on the road. Which makes me a road rage lady because people in Ohio are idiots, I am so serious, and most cannot drive. Insult intended there.
Now all that’s left to do is get back to the apartments and wait for Christmas to start. I am unsure about finals as well. I’ve had four exams in all my classes so I’m wondering if they’re is going to be another final. Hopefully. I want those grades to go up as much as possible.
But back to writing. Did any of you start any projects this month or do NaNoWriMo? Did you pick up any good books? Tell me all about it, I want to know! And go check out my Nano page 🙂
