If we were having coffee on this first Saturday of November, I’d invite you to Starbucks. I have a couple of free drinks earned through the rewards program and my all-time favorite coffee drink is in season…eggnog lattes! I wish I could have several of those each day! It makes me so sad when they stop serving them for the season.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am about a thousand words behind in my NaNoWriMo word count but I’m not too worried. I lost Friday’s writing time, all day in fact, to technical problems and babysitting but today I begin the day with a new modem and router and it’s all set up and encrypted and ready for me so today I write!
I would also tell you that I won’t be writing all day because I sort of promised Anderson I would take him to see the new Peanuts movie this afternoon. And there is grocery shopping to do. But I should get some significant writing time. And then there is tomorrow when I will be at a write-in for a couple of hours. It only takes me about an hour to write the day’s quota (1667 words per day) so if all goes right today and tomorrow, I might be able to jump ahead by a couple of days.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that while I don’t find writing a blog post a day for NaBloPoMo difficult, I do find it very difficult to read all the blogs I’m supposed to be reading on the NanoPoblano challenge. So I’m thinking that since I can’t get to all of them every day, I will give you a few links per day and hope that some of you can look at one extra blog peer day so they get some visitors and likes and shares. Can you do that for me, please? I’ll list the links at the end of the post.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I’m still not over my cold. This is day 12. I feel better but I’m not over it. I tire easily and I need more sleep. I am still coughing and sneezing. But at least I can function without the cold medicine! And I would also tell you that I finally got the NanoPoblano thingy to work in my sidebar! I knew it was something simple that I was just missing because it would link to the right url but there was no picture. Got it figured out. I was missing a “.” in the image url. Once I found that and fixed it, it works! Yay!
I guess that’s about all. I might come back for more coffee tomorrow because I know I want to say more but I can’t remember. And by the way, if you get a chance to click on the NanoPoblano image in the sidebar, it will take you to the list of participating blogs. I’m quite impressed with the quality of blog posts I have been reading from the list of blogs, for the most part. Go see! Go read!
Okay, time for more coffee and maybe reading a few blogs.
Blogs to check out if you can, just because I can’t get to all of them:
