Lazy Daisy Day

I wish I had a Mon-Fri kind of job, it would be easy to get used to having 2 days off in a row. Of course then it would mean I would have to work 5 days in a row *ugh* So far the most enegetic part of my day today was a trip to the grocery store, and a good reminder of why I don't grocery shop on Saturdays.

I did a bit of NaNo writing and plan to do some more. Gotta say my muse has surprised the hell out of me. I'm almost 3 thousand words in and so far, no sword fights, violence or sex. That's gotta be a record LOL. Just wait till closer to the end of the month when I am panicking about word counts.

This is Michaelangelo's "Bacchus" 1496-98. Since the story I am working on features this particular god, I was doing some research. As I learned while researching Thanatos and Hypnos last year, myths have many different versions. My stories are written in the present time, I have the luxury of picking and choosing myths to suit my purpose. Also being a fictional piece of work, I figure I can take a lot of 'artistic liscence'. Although I figure I had better brush up on my Italian wine knowledge. *G* Good thing I have tomorrow off too.

Never on Saturday! The grocery store that is, I had a lazy day too. Ok I am sure I am running out of words any time soon does 40,000 "yaddayaddayadda" count?

Yadda yadda yadda doesn't count. My favourite trick is to turn all your 'it's' into 'it is' and 'can't' into 'can not's. You wil be surprised how much you can bump up your word count that way.

Besides BS is what keeps you going during NaNo. Somewhere in the middle of all that crap ferments some great ideas that can be exploited in December during edits *G*
