This has not been a good week for me, writing-wise. Since Sunday I've gotten maybe 500 words on my NaNoWriMo novel, and I'm afraid of doing the math on how far behind that puts me. Numbers never lie. Work is still stressing me, my RPG campaign is in the final stages of falling apart (and we were so close to the conclusion! so close!), and I'm pretty convinced that even if I could write something novel-length it wouldn't be worth reading. I'm not an amazing stylist, I have no great message to impart, I don't do conspiracies involving the Vatican, vampires, or sex scenes. Totally unmarketable. (And while I'm on that topic, I'm still dithering over from where to get another rejection slip for my story. It's been a few weeks, I should be sending it out again.)

Part of me still wants to continue writing on my novel. For one thing, I bought three beautiful XF nibs to go with the narrow-ruled comp book I'm using, and though they were cheap compared to buying new pens that's still real money down the drain. For another, on Sunday I realized that something I wrote as a throw-way piece of background on Saturday could actually be the key to the external conflict I needed for the climax of the book. I am unreasonably excited about the idea of trying to create the scenes and dialog needed to pull this off.

I can't even manage to give up right.

Lest it be thought that there is no joy at all in my life, I'll post what's made me laugh today: What Would I Say. It's a website that looks at your FB posts and generates new posts for you. So far I've been getting gems like this:

I am wearing the perfume with narcissus, orange blossom, and story, and the ugly.

And
Got home, inked up and halfway through the game went well, though I might be collaborating with Housing tomorrow.

Or
My copy of laundry is a Pelikan M200 inked up to YOUR health, sir!


You can see how this kind of think could get addictive!
