Today is brought to you by Winter Blend tea.

Recently I wrote an entry on being nice to people where I related an experience I had at a con where an author whose work I admired turned out to not be a particularly nice person.

After writing the entry, I decided to appreciate the author's work as independent of his personality. I've hit it. I can look at one of his stories and say, "This is a fine story." I still don't want to hang out with the author.

This is one of those boring posts where I tell you I'm almost done with my NaNoWriMo experience for 2011, that I'm getting over the second cold since the end of October, and that Thanksgiving was a success. There was salmon this year, and it was delicious. Sadly, I'm actually missing the turkey and the things you do with a post-Thanksgiving turkey. Go figure.

I didn't know you were doing Nano too! I am finishing up today, only one thousand words to go.

Go, Sarah, Go!

I do NaNo every year. Well, except for last year :) -- job + school /= Nano.

Are you enjoying yourself?

Nano always amuses me
:)
I think this is my fourth or fifth time.

This time I am learning that I like a little pressure. Keeping to about 2K a day means I am cruising a bit, but then when I use my Write or Die software, I write a lot better and a lot faster. Interesting. A little pressure seems to equal better writing for me.

This sounds like an excellent lesson to learn :).

And I'm glad it's amusing you. I think that's the most important thing.
