Productivity? Maybe?

Today I have--

Finished an application
Started studying for the GREs
Read half the Tao Te Ching
Written two blog posts
Searched for a job to apply to. Three times. (Found nothing.)
Looked into substitute teaching. Can't figure out how you apply. Do you just ask the school district? WTF, internet? Why u no help?
Watched a freakish amount of How I Met Your Mother while doing all of this
Realized that How I Met Your Mother offends me on several levels, but can't stop watching it
Considered just hiding under the bed for a while, but decided that would be counterproductive
Written this post

I need to actually post in this journal more often, but am spread slightly thin between gaming blog, hazyOBSESSIONS, and other things. I have divided my interests far too much between blog-type things. Must cut down!

Day 9, NaNoWriMo 2011

11-11-11 looms. This is the day that Skyrim comes out and I'm practically shitting my pants (uh, pardon my French there) waiting for it to arrive at my door. I'll probably have a heart attack if Amazon delays it for some reason. Anyone who knows the Elder Scrolls series knows that November is the absolute worst time for that game to come out for gamers who are also NaNo-ers: Skyrim is going to be a huge time suck.

I can't wait.

Yesterday, my word count started at 7891 and moved up to 10149. I need to work a lot today to try to catch up with the flow of things. (Today, writers should be at 15,000.) Fortunately, my work schedule was moved so that I'm working on Saturday rather than Thursday, leaving me with a free day to catch up before Skyrim comes out.

I'll say it again: who can't wait? ME! THAT'S WHO. ME!

Might put out another update video on Youtube soon, depending on what I look like after I look in the mirror and whether the lighting is good enough right now.

Starting word count: 10149
Word count to date: 10149/15000

Day 7: NaNoWriMo 2011

So far, so good. I'm making really good pace today. I did a vid for NaNo Day 7 on YouTube and since then have done quite a bit of writing. Things are shaping up, though I think I need to make an outline at this point, and since I can finish for the day whenever I want, I can feel free to do so. :)

My favorite section so far:

On his knees, he pressed his head to the altar and remembered Rev, in cowboy boots and that perpetual frown. Rev's first kiss with a redhead girl who called him an idiot and slapped him before she took off. Rev's hand, reaching down to help Tanner up every time he'd ended up drunk in a gutter after Hana had taken off, though not for the last time. Rev's embarrassment when Benny had taken out a shotgun and told him they were getting hitched.

The gun seemed cruelly ironic now.

NaNoWriMo 2011!

It's NaNoWriMo time again, and I have as yet been listing. My original idea for what I wanted to work on was half-hearted at best, but then a friend of mine made an off-hand comment and I made a random association and, well....

I appear to be writing about corporate ninjas and internet pirates.

Yes, you may feel free to let your head meet the desk. We can all be synchronized in three, two, one....

I'm also trying to edit my YA novel and work on "As If I Had Never Fallen" at the same time, so that's, um. Fun. Ish. LOL.

So, in keeping with tradition and accountability desires, today's word counts! As always, the daily count will be updated as the day goes on.

Beginning Word Count: 0. I know it's day 6, but I had to start anew!!!
