Still squeezing NaNoing in the morning before work and the evening after working late. Why do Novembers have to suck? It used to be my favorite month. It still is, but the past couple of years, Novembers have *sucked*. It might have something to do with January 1st deadlines for things and the mad scramble to get them finished before the holidays descend.

Anyway--so far, I have been mostly working on dialogue. Trying to write a bit of dialogue for each future chapter, just to get an idea of what's going to happen in that chapter--really happen, not just my vague outliney thoughts, because I've already started to contradict them with aforementioned dialogue.

When I get through all the chapters, I'll go back and fill in more dialogue, action, description, introspection, whatever comes to mind in those mad writing sprees between hours at work.

We're being discriminated against. Everyone else is hunkering down for the winter and being all busy inside. The weather here is glorious. If you didn't want to write so much, I'd tell you to get out and enjoy it while you can.

I don't have time to enjoy the weather. Work is too busy. My GF is always saying, "Wasn't today just beautiful?" And me: "I wouldn't know, I was locked in the office until after sunset."

Other times, I run off at lunch and go do something for 30-60 minutes. Haven't done that in a good long while.

I suppose it's a good thing I've never been much of an outdoors kind of person.

So far, it's been rather nuts. It's like "Work" "NaNo"--can't think of anything else.

Oh, that sounds great. Are you off work for the day? (LOL if you still have work to do--with wine!)

Tomorrow evening I'll take my wine break.

Today, I think a whine break will be more satisfying.
