Wri, Wry or Rye - Depends

Day 3 - Crossed into 6040 yesterday. And I learned some stuff. First, having a plan makes writing easier. Second, I'm not editing, but I'm definitely spell-correcting - habit. Third, one hour = 1000 words, roughly.
We shall see what today brings.

Yesterday, I came across a link over at Joanna St. James' blog - eHarlequin. They are giving away NaNo prizes in different categories each week. One of the things they asked each person to post was favorite line written thus far. Here's mine:

"You are one pixel shy of an ADD commercial."

I think that definitely speaks to the wry part of this post. That leaves the rye. I love rye bread; especially with braunshwei - oh, forget it. Liver sausage, that's easier. And corned beef, roast beef, or pastrami. And let's not forget the mustard or the pickles. I love pickles! Ouch, I'm thinking about lunch already. This does not bode well. Maybe I can talk hubs into fixing me something. Hey, I'm working here!

And another toast: When your MC starts to flee, here's hoping you have plenty of vitamin C.

Goofy, I know, but what can I say. I think it's a goofy kind of day.

Happy Writing,



  1. Congrats on over 6,000 words! :D

    Rye bread is good.

  2. Thanks Golden,
    Today just cruised right along. So far, so good.

  3. Sounds like NaNo is going swimmingly. I am an obsessive spell checker also. Here's hoping the words continue to flow like water.

  4. Then, if we could just turn that water into book sales, I would be a very happy camper. Or, maybe a hot tub - the hubs would like that.
    Hope it goes as well for you. Your word count as of this afternoon was looking good!
