As I had no idea how to title this update I decided why not go with a statement of fact. If you want to check out the past couple of updates this is last weeks and this is the first.
You may have noticed that there were no blog posts at all this week. I had four or five planned but they all fell through, due to bad internet connection, lack of time, lack of resources, and a general not wanting to. Also, the one I wanted to do on Friday I want to check with a friend before I post it as it could be seen as a little mean…
Oh, yeah this is a Nano update. Let me remember:
Oh wait that is to far back in the past. Just this past week will do.
Sunday, I didn’t do super well, but I had to work for five hours so that was fine.
Monday, I was supposed to do really well on Monday, but I got accused of something I hadn’t done and it really hurt. I couldn’t get it out of my mind and I couldn’t write.
Tuesday, the after-effects of Monday were still reverberating through my mind, I also spent the day volunteering so I got little more than two hundred words written.
Wednesday, I had to work for a few hours and cook dinner, but I got more than two thousand words written.
Thursday, I had five hours of work that I spent making a cute scene for the library. I only got a couple thousand words written.
Friday. I was babysitting, so I only got a couple hundred words written in the morning. I had to quit writing a bit before five so I could help get ready for Sabbath as I make a point of not writing on the Sabbath.
Saturday, I was able to get a bit over a thousand words written after supper even though Mom was reading aloud a book to us. I hope to do better than that author, who I will not mention, but if you really want to know I did just add the book to Goodreads, so… Do with that knowledge as you will.
Next week should be calmer and so I hope to be able to get ahead as I am will be spending the last week of the month traveling to see family.
Now for a snippet
would switch which arm I was carrying it with at the end of every mountain.
I understood as I walked with the shield why soldiers at least would see the Jaars Mountains as dreadfully treacherous. The large size of the kite shield makes walking over the rough terrain absolutely horrible. I had to lift it up over this, while watching the top to make sure any of the weapon catchers didn’t catch on a branch. Meanwhile the sword was acting as a loose limb that doesn’t even bend.
For two half mountains I tried carrying the sword in my opposite hand as well. That was a little easier in some ways, but the lack of rest of either arm was too much and I had to quit. Dunnos was sympathetic but he enjoyed the fact that because of my weapons we were forced to walk at a speed he could keep up with even in cat form. Sam was impatient with the speed
It’s a classic horrible snippet, but things are starting to get exciting. If you’ve been following my Ko-fi account, you may have run across ****, he has a name now, it’s Bill.
I have been eating cabbage as my snack, it’s been lovely.
I hope I’m not going to light on the descriptions it took me until page 27 to mention the fact that the main character is ambidextrous and that is the only thing you know about him. Or anyone, except Dunnos and Sam.
My story is weird. Okay?
