Accursed Bug!

Now Playing -     
Only The Young by Brandon Flowers
Life -  
 My life can be summed up by one simple word - SICK. After years of confidently prancing around amongst the sick and infirm customers of Idaho, my carefully cultivated immunity to common bugs has let me down out here in Maine, where there are new, wicked strains. For the last few days I've been suffering from a sore throat, headache, body aches, couch, runny nose, congested sinuses, dizziness, sore ears, even sensitive fingertips, for heck's sake! I'm finally feeling better, thanks to some heavy druggage and a sick day, but man, I was pretty miserable for a couple of days.

Now, I just have to hope my wife doesn't get it... She's not a happy sick person. (And it's her birthday on the sixth, so it would just be mean of the thing to make her sick on her birthday!)

Apart from that, nothing to report.

Writing - 
I lost at NaNoWriMo, but that's okay, I made it to over 35,000 words, that's pretty decent. Now I just have to find time in December to finish!
The Last Sentence -  
  Pale was quite happy to find an unbroken jar of pickles in a basement storeroom.
    From - "Mr. Pale Steps Out" (WIP) 

Weighty Matters -   
  My Current Weight -  296


  Sold the last of my lightweight Sasquatch sticker over on Deeply Dapper, hooray! I also started a new feature where I comment on just the covers of the books I'm reading.

My lovely bride talks about why she likes rejection letters

How NaNoWriMo made me a loser. And a winner.

Coming soon - Another LEGO review!

It's interesting to hear how people cope differently with being sick. My wife suffers without complaint just like a stalwart soldier. I turn into a big fat baby and am not at all pleasant to be around. I usually need to lock myself in a room and not come out until I'm well.

I hope you realize how difficult it is to be teased unmercifully reading these tidbits about Mr. Pale, not to mention that Graves novel. Let me know when those books go up for sale. Are you able to self-publish things online? I'd be honored to be one of your first customers.

So the good thing about nano is that it gets people writing. The bad thing is that it sets a word limit as the measure of success for your writing. Over 35,000 words in a month is awesome:)

35K is nothing to sneeze at; well done!

Glad to hear that you are feeling better!! I hope you didn't give your illness to your wife. That is not a good thing to be sick on your birthday.

As everyone has stated, 35K is a great thing! Keep it up!!

Thanks guys! I was pretty dang happy with 35,000 words. Especially considering I'll be lucky to hit 35 words in December.
