Random Saturday Musings

-Last night I dreamed I joined concert band again.  I was playing the 3rd Trumped part, and I was so happy to be back in band I didn’t  care.

-I ended yesterday with a word total of 3,829.  I need to reach 5,000 words today to stay on course.  I’m really struggling to not delete everything and start over.  Anytime that I write I end up doing that, and so I never finish anything.  I’m really determined that no matter how bad (and believe me, this novel is really bad) what I write  is, I will do no editing until I reach December.

Since NaNoWriMo has started, it seems appropriate that I be thinking about words.  It’s interesting how sometimes people can say or write something that they don’t really mean anything by, and it ends up really hurting the person it’s said about.  I’m guilty of this, not unlike most people.  I’ve been working through some things that have been said to me over the years, things that I’m not proud to admit have done a lot to shape how I think about life and about myself.  There’s a good lesson in it, but I’m not 100% ready to share anything more particular.  I guess, I just want to remind everyone to choose your words wisely.

Back to writing!

(Also, the entries this month will likely be pretty short ones, since I’m trying to crank out over 1600 words a day, on top of any homework and blogging.)
