NaNoRazor'sEdge - day 12

Okay - so today I'm officially not posting a Razor's Edge. It's NaNoWriMo.

No - that's not exactly fair, either. Okay - let's do it this way. See, I spent over an hour just getting my computer to cooperate and work with me tonight so I could write my 1700 words for today. Then it was slow and bogged down every time it went into AutoSave mode. Which slowed me down more. (There seems to be a bit of an internet connection issue at this place - which normally is fine, but is annoying when one is trying to be a speed demon typist and it gets stuck every time it saves.)

So - I'm going to pick a few prompts from one or two of my favorite prompt writers and post them here. I don't need to leave you in the "where's my prompt?" dust because I'm busy putting words down regardless of them making sense or not. *smile*

From Natalie Goldberg, in her book, Old Friends From Far Away:
- Write about your mother's jewelry. Go. Ten Minutes.
- Write about her shoes. Go. Another ten.
From Brian Kiteley's The 3 A.M. Epiphany:
SENTENCED TO DEATH. Take a sentence from a writer you admire or who provokes strong feelings in your gut. Preferably, this should be a fairly long sentence with a lot of different words in it. Use any of the words and only those words (repeating words from the sentence as often as you want) to make up fifteen sentences of your own - adhering around a character or situation that seems related to the author of this sentence, but it need not be a direct response to the author.
Oh - and my current word count is 23,148! I never thought I'd reach that today with all of the technical issues. Call me determined or stubborn - I did it.
