Not NaNoWriMo Day 2: 365. Also, an Election.

I voted this morning: 13 Democrats, 5 Republicans, 1 Green, 1 independent, not counting judges running only for retention or judicial candidates for open seats running unopposed. So far, it looks like two of the Republicans, the Green, the independent, and one of the Democrats are going to lose, and two of the other races are too close to call. The only races I felt at all good about were some of the very local races; the Democrats managed to field entirely uninspiring candidates for our state wide races, but the Republicans were either no better or worse in most cases. If the races hadn’t been so close, I would have voted for more of the third party candidates.

I added 365 words today, all written on the train to and from work. I was a little more productive in the morning than I was on the way home, probably due to brain drain from the day’s work, and that on the way home I have to worry about missing my stop while going downtown I can write all the way up to the point the last other commuter leaves the train car.

Total word count for Not NaNoWriMo 2010 so far: 783/10,000.

Total word count for Breezeway Blows Town: 75,416/100,000.

  1. You’re not doing NaNo? Yet you’re keeping a word count?

    Curiouser and curiouser.

    I didn’t jump into NaNo 2010 because my plate is pretty full right now.

    • Ralph – I’m “not” doing NaNo, in that I’m not shooting for 50K, but I am keeping the word count and trying to keep to a schedule. Having the deadline and being virtually surrounded by others doing the same is very motivating, and I needed the kickstart to get the damn WIP finished.

  2. Hard to get excited about the nationwide election this year. But I voted. And I would’ve manned the polls all day, too if it hadn’t been for that meddling car accident.
