NaNoWriMo Day 9 – Eh, Details!

Wheeee! So I’m up to 32k+ and typed 2,828 words today. :3 After a few distraction (the NaNo-Olympians FB group, my wordpress blog, creating the perfect playlist to write by, and scanning my typed manuscript for other plot-holes I missed) I finally was able to sit down and just WRITE! Despite the fact I do find myself having to go back and fill in some “gaps”, once I actually settle in and write – things are awesome! Admittedly they could be a lot faster but because I’m trying to make executive decisions WHILE glancing at my hand-written manuscript vs. what I’m typing I tend to get slowed down now and again. For those who aren’t aware I can type 60+ WPM. Friends and even some family have commented about how when I type it sounds like an Epileptic Woodpecker. Yes laugh! Go ahead! I know it’s funny – I laugh to. 😛

Despite the distraction with the playlist – I often find the right kind of music can bode well for the perfect creative writing atmosphere (at least for myself) – including sometimes – the right snacks and/or beverages. Also taking periodic breaks every hour for stretching is very good to staff off pesky tendonitis or other nasty things (such as poor circulation in your legs). This evening I had some Peppermint Tea, Sobe Pina Colada, a Marie Calender’s dinner and I’m staring at two pieces of Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark with Dark Chocolatesquares as my reward for a job well done! 2k+ may not seem like a lot but it most definitely is when you see the fruits of your labor.

So now this NaNo-nite is going to wind down for the evening with something relaxing (A bit of City of Heroes and checking the NaNo-Olympian’s FB group) and then hit the sack when Hypnos and Morpheus both decide it’s bedtime for me.
