Today was the first day it really and truly felt like fall in Oklahoma. I wore my new Northface and everything! I think it would be my favorite season, but almost every year we fast forward right to snow. Ick. Who likes that?
Today I wore my out-of-control feather earrings. They kind
of make you feel like you're being tickled.
I drank a Caramal Apple Cider from Starbucks [coffee? gross] and finished
my book [Emily Giffin, win].
I saw some really pretty colors as I was driving around to have lunch with the best friend. I'm staying with my grandparents for the next few days in Tulsa. The husband is in Tampa for a friend's wedding, and I'm too terrified to stay in OKC in our spider-infested apartment by myself. The daddy longlegs might eat me and no one would know! We decided to save money, so I didn't get to fly to warmer weather and sandy beaches this time around. It's barely been one day and I'm already missing him like crazy. I literally teared up today.
And I worked on my NaNoWRIMo project. Basically for nerds like me, November is
known as the national writing month. People all over consciously decided it would be a good idea to write 50,000 words in one month. Crazy, right? I've done it before, but it took an entire semester to get it done. I also had this really mean man forcing me to do it ...called my professor. But that book stank. Like really really stank. Like hard boiled-eggs-in-the-sun or my-dad-just-ripped-one kind of stankkk.
This one will be different.
I have to hit about 1,600 words a day to finish on time. This blog post doesn't count. Aren't you lucky that I took time out of my book for you people? I'm so selfless.
I seriously doubt I will make it to 50k by the end of the month, but I'm gonna do what I can. I figure why not put my Professional Writing degree to use, especially when I'm a young wife with nothing but time on her hands?
Pretend with me for a second that I'm cool and not [entirely] insane.
Hooray for round two of book writing!
