NaNo Day 3: Another NaNo Monday

I know that it is actually the first NaNo Monday but I needed a snappy title and that one worked.

It is, indeed, day 3 of NaNoWriMo and as of last night was 100 words short. Of course, that means today I have to write 1766 words. But that's doable... if I can get this stupid story moving.

I really don't have a story. It is almost laughable. I'm struggling with it already and that's a bad sign. It means I didn't' have a story to start with. I had a good opening idea that didn't translate well when I finally wrote it.

To top all that off, I feel utterly terrible. I'm hurting in several places, most notably my neck. When the neck hurts, everything else is bad. I am tired because I stayed up too late on Saturday and then I didn't sleep well that night. The time shift sort of backfired on me. I  got up late and spent Sunday sitting around watching television... I think. Maybe not.

Today, I'm sort of blurry, if that makes any sense at all. My head, neck and shoulder hurt. I'm still sleepy. I'm guessing fibro attack. There is some joint pain but it is mild compared to the neck.

Now, back to the grindstone to polish this nose. We'll see how the writing goes when I get home.


  1. I hate the time shift - it creates havoc with everything we plan and ends up matching our allergy season cough. All that means is insufficient sleep at irregular hours and nothing much gets done. Stress hurts.

  2. Yep. I didn't anticipate the change and now it is totally dark when I leave work and I can't go to the cemetery to walk as I had planned after work. I'm so disappointed. Why would I want more daylight at 6 a.m. that I do at 5 a.m. which is when I'd be doing outside work anyway. Neither saves me electricity because both are too dark to do without lights inside!
