Nanowrimo and November have come and gone in a month, in real life. Our planet (last time I checked it was still called Earth, in English at least) has moved around its star (the Sun in case you are wondering) in a discreet fashion. Our moon (Earth’s only satellite called in the aforementioned language the Moon, no comments here…) has shyly illuminated our cold and snowy nights. And everything happened in a blink of an eye for this humble ECReader Nanowriter who has been busy reading (whatever arrived from my Library Express), and writing (the famous 50,000 words). Time is inconsistent and subjective for people like me. It takes two years of my time to write 50 words, when for you gentle reader (don’t worry I haven’t forgotten to formally acknowledge you; it is just that for propriety’s sake I had to put some distance from you and the title) just mere minutes have ticked away in your watch. And while the whole world is rocked by I-said-that you said-that-I-said leaks about human stupidity, I am thankfully (hence the season) far away, engaged in a long journey to infinity and beyond. Nevertheless, it would be nice to have company along the road. Said that, I humbly hope you enjoy my writing, gentle reader.
The stack of books is gone. I know, it doesn’t sound right. Today, in full Nanowrimo’s* madness nonetheless, I finished the last book I was reading (unfortunately nothing worth writing about, even if I hadn’t pledged my alliance to Nano for the rest of the month) and I dropped it at the return box of my Library Express. I have gone through the whole stack of books and now I feel utterly bereft. Thankfully my Kindle has my other stash ready. First on the list is Clockwork Angel by my absolute favorite author, the great Cassandra Clare. This is the book I have been saving for last (remember, I already told you about the Library Hater, aka the procrastinator), and my Kindle’s battery is low (instant karma?). I have written my daily quota of words for my Nanowrimo project already, and I feel good. I deserve to start reading Clockwork Angel so I can write the review for you (I am that good). Meanwhile I will clean my writing and post an excerpt from my soon-to-be-finished 50,000 words extravaganza. Happy and prolific weekend to everybody out there.
*finally the website is running!
And there are good chances I won’t be able to do it for the rest of the month. I have a very good excuse though. It’s November, again ( if you are lucky you tend to experience this occurrence once a year). I have pledged my alliance to Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) for the second time, and I am ready to go and pour my 50,000 (awesome) words on virtual paper. Judging from the fact that I am unable to access the Nanowrimo’s web site from yesterday, I am not the only one embarking on this exciting journey. Hence, no amazing links to click on today. Happy writing to my fellow nanowriters, and a wonderful week to the rest of the world.
