Working Like a Dog

Nano: I'm dividing Sunday's Nano work into three sets of apprximately 2000 words each. So even though I took Friday and Saturday off, I'll still have word counts for them.

Nanowrimo 11/19/04: 2027 Words
Nanowrimo 11/20/04: 2020 words
Nanowrimo 11/21/04: 2103 words Running Total: 41,671 words

I needed the break, and I'm very glad I took it.

Movie: We saw National Treasure this weekend, and it was wonderful! Very fun to see a movie with all of these neat, historical facts in it. And I love Nicholas Cage.

Yum! My Mom sent me a box of baklava from Harry and David's. I ate one for breakfast, and it was scrumptious!

Web: I'm looking forward to finally developing my Musevoices website, once I finish Nano. It will be a nice rest from the novel, while I percolate over ideas.

Back to work. I have about 4,000 2,000 more words to write before i go to bed.

Seen in the journal of qos:

Some may call you bookish, and mean it in a bad
way.....but we know better! Delighting in
books, and very likely with more tomes than
clothes, you amaze others with your knowledge
of the obscure and the common.

Books alone cannot a life make, but you know this
as love having chats with others
who love words and ideas as much as yourself!

Can I play in your library? Please??

Seen in shusu's journal, but I took the editorializing out:

The number ONE request at Walter Reed hospital is phone cards. Because the government doesn’t pay long-distance phone charges, these guys, many of them amputees, are rationing their calls home. Many are from poor families and will be hospitalized throughout the holidays.

Send phone cards of any amount to:

Medical Family Assistance Center
Walter Reed Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20307-5001

They say they need an “endless” supply of these—any amount, even $5, is greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure where you can buy phone cards, but I'll be looking for them.
