Day 7 Not a good writing day but a good IRL day

08 Apr

It is one of life'sSo Sunday, Day 7 of Camp NaNoWriMo was a bust for writing. I think I wrote maybe 200 words, but I did help Mr. Rockstar babysit his niece and nephew (ages 3 and almost 2) while his sister and brother-in-law went a friend’s funeral (sad). Then we went to the grocery store. Then we went to a friend’s house for dinner and watched the Hunger Games. I didn’t want to watch the movie until after I’d read the book, but it’s going to be a while before I get to that set of books (there are all of these other books that are higher on my To Read list, plus I’m writing a novel in 30 days so I’m not reading as much as I usually do..

It's all about the love

It’s all about the love

I realized today while we were at our friend’s house eating dinner (and it was a fabulous dinner) that Chris Baty was right–you have to take some real life time, some time for inspiration, because while we were over there I listened to the various conversations, and I watched the movie and looked for plots and themes and characterization, as well as any cliches, which only made me want to read the book even more, but alas I have to wait.

Mr. Rockstar and I went out to eat on Day 5 (which is when this picture was taken). It was really nice to get out. And Sunday after we got home from having a wonderful dinner at our friend’s house I realized I really needed to just go to bed, get some much needed sleep, but the pain was overwhelming (yet another week and weekend of doing entirely too much) and I couldn’t sleep.

So in all actuality it is day 8, but I’m still in the mindset of day 7.

IMG_1076I miss the daily prompts, but I really just do not have time to do them every day, but I am trying to post every day…However, I really don’t want this month’s posts to be just about Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m going to have to come up with something else…So here I am at my computer with my headphones on listening to classic 70’s rock while I go through my email, etc and try to get in the mindset of chapter 4 of my novel. I have coffee and I’m going to need a whole lot more before today is over with…That or a much needed nap sooner or later.

Oh, and I am loving my new chair 😀
