Laundry and Writing

I spent most of the day at my daughter's house doing laundry. With three loads of laundry, it took quite a while to do. I also plotted the new story points so I would know which direction New Horizons is going. From what I plotted, it should be an interesting book. At the moment I have over a thousand words to write to be on track for today's word quota. Hopefully I can achieve that in the next hour, and then I will be here to interact with you. I hope your day has been a good one. Thanks for reading.

Happy to hear you are making such good headway with your book. Can't wait to read it! I sat in the car for 6 hours.

Ugh! I couldn't sit in a car for six hours. I would go insane. I hope you were able to get out and stretch every so often. Thank you. This one will be a while in coming. This is my NaNo project. When November is over, unless the juices are flowing like they are now, I will get started on publishing Thread of Evidence and working on Uncertain Future.

@DianneN I'm glad you stopped for breakfast. It's easy for me. I don't work on too many at a time, though I have pulled up a couple more to see what I can do with them. But for now, I'm going to focus on the November project.

If you're not a writer, it is. I can do that in a couple hours. I'm on day three and have over 6000 words at the moment.

@just4him The last time I had to count words was a term paper years ago.

@AmbiePam Then I'm sure you had to count by hand. I've done that too, not exciting. I like that the word count is automatic at the bottom of my page now. So much easier.

@MarymargII I did good. I got it put away last night. I only waited two days this time. I've had weeks where I didn't put them away until I needed to do laundry.

That's no problem. I'm currently over 6000 in three days and today isn't over yet.

I hope the words flow for you. I used to bang out product reviews that were well over 1000 words so I guess I could probably do this writing challenge if I had any talent in fiction writing. I would hate having to haul my laundry anywhere to wash/dry it. I hate having to go downstairs to the basement to do it. The best situation ever was when I rented a room in a coworker's house and the washer and dryer were on the second floor with the bedrooms. That was AMAZING!

That does make it convenient. The laundry here is on the second floor, but it's hard on my knees. It's a lot easier at my daughter's house, her laundry room is on the first floor.

Way to go on your next book to plot! I'm doing the same for Nano this month. Nice job! As for laundry, that's a lot. Today wasn't too bad.

Yes, it was a lot. I don't usually have more than one load, but it was a long time between and I had sheets to do as well, so that made three loads. I'm glad you're doing NaNo. Are you starting a new book, or are you a rebel?

@just4him Thanks Valerie. My 9th year. New book. Maybe I'll be a Rebel next year, if I have no ideas. The same for Camp Nano too.

@KristenH I don't know how many times I've done NaNo. I don't know what my password was for the other e-mail address, so I started new on my current e-mail I use all the time.

Is that another book you are writing then? I have several ideas in mind but they are on the backburner. Laundry is often a good thing to do as you think of other things that you might not normally think of. A thousand words is a lot to write so good luck.

A thousand words for a writer is a spit in the bucket. After four days, I have over 10K now. Yes, it's my newest novel and one I'm doing for National Novel Writer's Month or NaNoWriMo.

@just4him Ten thousand words? Those are a huge amount of words. In just four days and it takes me all my time to write on here sometimes.

@lovinangelsinstead21 I know, it can be challenging to write a blog post. Yes, 10,000 words. It was no problem getting to that number.

Thank you. It's going well. I don't mind laundry. I wish I could do it here, but the stairs are too hard on my knees.
