NaNoWriMo: day 18

Today was "stolen moments" of writing.

The first session was after my morning appointment. I first had to type in what I wrote yesterday - which actually turned out to be an easy way to reacquaint myself with where I was in the story. The only difficulty was not editing as I went; I tried to just type fast and ignore grammatical or sense errors and add the piece.

The second opportunity was that I had a workout scheduled with a friend in between a couple of jobs. The friend was unable to make it, so I decided to head to the vicinity of the second job and park myself somewhere with coffee and an outlet and write. Which I did. I did go for the workout, but not until after my last job.

Then I went home, made a late dinner and sat in the living room keeping the cats out of my smoked salmon (they ignored my sweet peas and a baked small purple potato) while trying to write out a bit more in the story.

Through all of that, I did manage to type out another 1887 words, making my total word count through today 34,703.
