Crazy November

Gah. I just woke up from a five hour nap. It’s fine, of course, but the thing is, I need to be at work early tomorrow, so I don’t need any naps today since I won’t be staying up all night. Ergh. I was supposed to have a productive afternoon writing, but no. Hmph.

Anyway, I’m too lazy to update this other blog (been too lazy lately to update any other blog, for that matter), so I’ll rant and update about my NaNoWriMo novel here. I’m currently at 36k+ words, which is not bad since I’m over the 35K thing, which should make all things easy…but really, it’s not. I’m aiming to get at least 40k words tonight, which means I have 10k words left to write for the next four days. Why four days? I’m going to be out on Friday for MV Doulos, All Leopard Day and lunch with Tuesday and Happy. I could cram writing at night, but not more than 1000 words please.

So why am I going to work early tomorrow when I’m still at night shift? Well, a big boss at work is coming to town, and my team was asked to help out with making a photo book for the guy. Two of my teammates were assigned as photographers, two of my teammates will work as the layout artists and we have a printer and a photobook that needs to be filled up. I offered my services to cut and paste them in the photobook (even if I seriously suck at cutting…but that’s why I offered my paper trimmer up as well :D). My part of the deal starts in the afternoon, so I could just go to work then, but I’ve got leftover work from another client at work (argh, argh, argh), and I need to finish it ASAP so if I have any revisions I could finish it immediately…hence my drive to get to work early to finish that first before any of the photo book stuff. *whew*

I knew November was going to be crazy, but this is…just…crazy. See emphasis, please.

This feels so much like school. Haha. Crunch time!

This point is totally senseless. But I guess the nap worked because I feel like I’m running on a full battery, so that should get more work done. Here’s to writing 4000 more words tonight.

But wait. CSI:NY Season 4 Episode 9 waits. Eeep.

  1. Hey Tina! It’s Jess/Meg from Ubiety.org… oh remember those days? I was thinking bout you guys on my day off and found your blog here and I gotta say it’s lovely! I miss talking to you as well! Keep in touch =)

  2. So like, after mustering enough courage to actually enlist myself on for the NaNoWriMo challenge, it went quite well…only after I got stalled then finally stumped after my 10K something word. Argh!

    Anyways, congratulations already to you and the rest of Pinoy aspiring novelists for pulling yourselves off it.

    Wish I’d make it by the next challenge…
