NaNo count: 31,104 words
It’s hard to imagine how much one thing can really dictate the day for you. Yesterday I spent the day working, but my focus was on my daughter’s boyfriend. He’s upstairs right now getting over pneumonia. He came for a weekend. Last week. Poor kid was burning up and there was a point where we discussed seriously heading to the hospital again. Luckily, the antibiotics finally took hold and his fever broke for what appears to be the final time.
Despite the worry, I managed a new client project that I’d hoped to get out yesterday. As I hit send, in came yet another project (three, actually). I’m tired thinking about all I have to get done.
Today is a phone call with a client and some roughing in of two articles due in December. Then I hope to get back to NaNo, which was a struggle to get to given the pneumonia worry.
So it’s link love time. The ironic thing about these posts are that each one was chosen for its content, but that the whole of them are numeric in nature. Here’s what I mean:
