Can I get a "Woot, Woot!" people? I passed the 25,000-word mark this very minute.
Now, can I get an, "Oh, Poop!" people? According to the National Novel Writing Month Web site, I'm supposed to be at 36,674 BY THE END OF THIS WEEKEND.
What's with that? Don't they realize there are friends to eat lunch with? (I'm talking to you, Pam and Nancy?) And neighbors to chat with? (I'm talking to you, Lori.) And teenage children to yell at? ("Clean your room already!") And books to read? (I'm talking to you, Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli.) And a husband to whoop in Scrabble. (Um, was I talking to you, Dan?)
But nooooooooo, I need to glue my phalanges to the laptop. Whatever!
