VernQuarBoWriMo v. Oops 76%

Posted by admin on November 9th, 2010 filed in General, VernQuarBoWriMo, Writing

You guys I wrote so hard today!  Look at all those percents I have!  That’s more than 3/4ths of a book!

I seem to be somewhere between the stages of “This book is so horrible!  I wish it would die!” and “Don’t think about how bad it is, just write!”  I hope to soon be at the stage where I write, but don’t have to feel bad about how bad it is.  That happens eventually, right?  Okay, I’m really tired and I have no way of telling if that paragraph made sense to anyone.

Each night at dinner, Beren asks us all what we are thankful for.  Tonight I told him I was thankful for dirigibles and balloons and submersibles and dials and pipes and biperspic lenses and all sorts of other steampunk things I was reminded of  when looking at Cake Wreck’s Sunday Sweets, which was steampunk themed this week.  The whole family, even the baby, looked at me like I had gone utterly mad.

I haven’t.  I’m pretty sure.

I was really happy to include some leather pants in the section I wrote today.  I can live vicariously through my leather pant clad characters.  You see, we have a rule in my house about leather pants.  Vernaple bonus points to you if you know what that rule is.*

Now:


68631 / 90000 words. 76% done!

Previously:

*Vernaple bonus points are not redeemable for anything except bragging rights.

    Yay! I am so impressed! You know, some of the stuff I felt the worst about when I was painting it in the end turned out to be my favorite. I feel like you are describing my feelings when I am not sure what choice I am going to make concerning some aspect of a creative work. It is a lot of pressure! Keep up the good work! You are my hero!

    Is the leather pants rule unanimously agreed upon?

    What a wonderful dinnertime tradition for Beren to ask!

  2. Megan Says:

    Thanks! You should probably reserve the hero status for when I actually get done. We don’t want me to get too much confidence!

    And the leather pants rule most certainly is not unanimously agreed upon!

  3. Aloysius Says:

    No unless you’re Jim Morrison?

  4. admin Says:

    Correct! Bonus points for you!

    chris beat me to it. ron loves the fact that the adkins’ have a preexisting rule about leather pants. i giggled when i read this post, remembering when and why it has come up in conversation before.
