Day 18 -nanowrimo

Day 17 - nanowrimo



I am so ready to get back to my storyblog. Here I am on page 90 on my nano novel and thinking of stories about Omaha and Sheena or what will happen with Joey. And will life be OK for Xander if someone new comes to stay with his family. Or what did Betty do at Thanksgiving...

I'm not sure its even worth getting to 50 thousand words, my nano novel. I had a discussion with another nano writer who hand writes everything and then types up her novel. She likes writing in the summer, outside..and its almost winter in the mid-west. Even with global warming..it can still chill you to the bone.

"I dunno..I feel like I'm in a room with no door now." I told her when it comes to writing the nano novel. Still, I am trying to hang on..maybe by a thread..as I continue to write.

Oh, What a night

oh, what a night

At least..I survived. But add tequila..and you don't know what might go wrong. Drunk writing and computer difficulties. Not a good mix.

It was only one drink. Still, I regret it terribly..this morning.

Mojo stepped on my foot when I was trying to get to the bedroom door. I had had some trouble in the middle of the night..thinking I knew where I was going..in the dark of my room. NOT

I almost ended up in my closet. For a second there.. I was certain I had found a mystery room in the house. (may need to put that in the novel.)

Oh..and he just smiles now, when I talk about it. 

I did not sleep well (due to almost getting locked out of my ipad) and then..when I did sleep, somebody woke me up, to tell me she needed to go out.

It did rain last night and there are lots of leaves on the ground.

I need to write some more on nano..still, I'm doing much better than I expected this time.

As they say..always write more!

Up to 71 pages now.

a little thanks

a little thanks




Dear Ivy:

I can't tell you, how happy I was to get your care package. You, really made my day.

I always love fresh white socks and, underwear too. And, it was great to get those MOUND bars, as well.

Gotta say, I was surprised to hear you and Simon didn't get together. I mean, I expected it to happen, after we broke up. I was hoping you'd find someone..who's sweet and good and doesn't have a mean streak.

Honestly, I'm kind of shocked..you..with Will, but maybe Will really needs someone like you, in his life. You were always thoughtful and kind, and I'm sure you'll know..some day.. what to do... to make you happy. You'll have some sort of career where you are helping people.

I hope Gabby isn't too much trouble, lately. I knew Will and Gabby were having troubles, but I thought they would work it out. Although, they are so different. Maybe, she just needs to work on being good to herself and figuring out what she wants to do, before she graduates.

I think you'd make a great teacher. You, helped me a lot, to get through high school. Maybe you'll be a  nurse or some sort of first responder. I think you'd be a good one.

I'm learning a lot, about being a medic. Although, I'm also learning a lot about jeeps, too. I have to get through this schooling before they send me overseas.

And..well, I have met someone in school. She's from Texas and she really is good with cars. I dunno what she could see in me, but we eat lunch together and go to a movie or two on the weekends. I do enjoy her company. Her name is Tyra and she once lived in foster care, too. I guess we are good buddies.

Don't worry..I haven't fell madly in love with anyone.

Thanks, for still being my friend. Please send me more letters. You, don't have to send me care packages every-time.

Your Friend,

Randy
