Don't You Love It When...

"i never think at all when i write
nobody can do two things at the same time
and do them both well"
~Don Marquis, Archy's Life of Mehitabel, 1933

OK, so don't you just LOVE it when

...you're writing a scene and you realize you have a fundamental problem with the situation (as in, this character was supposed to be dead two chapters ago, or the last time the characters were in this room there was a chair by the front window, but now there definitely isn't...)?

...you look at your calendar and realize you only have 1 week to accomplish a project when you thought you had 2?

...you get all the way to work before you realize you forgot something you ABSOLUTELY need?

...the reason your husband hasn't slept in 3 nights is because he has something called costochondritis?

Yes, all this and more has happened to me in the last 7 days. Go figure. Glad I have an extra hour today to sort out my life.

How are all you NaNo writers doing?

OW... poor hubby.

And, I'm sorry, but I have to admit to laughing just a little... I hope next week gets better for you.

Now, back to writing, I'm only up 1000 words and I want 3000.

No-I don't love it when...nano is slow going. Got the time - don't have the words.

Poor hubby. Hope this week is much better.

Thank goodness for Spring Ahead/Fall Back. I'm not participating in NaNo, but enjoy reading about how others are faring.

Ay yi yi! Take it easy, Allie. I hate when things slip away from me.

At least we get ONE 25 hour day each year.
