U People n YoNaBloPoMoCrp

How's a girl supposed to write a freaking novel with all of these blog posts cropping up daily? (And I thank you.) Come on, as a favor to me, cease and desist! Save a freaking bunny, for the love of art!

Okay fine, it's not you, it's my children.

Well, okay, no, they've been pretty good, it's the laundry.

Or maybe the cats.

Or quite possibly the Christmas presents I have started making for people.

Actually, it might be the desk that is just begging for organization.

The amount of TV I watch, despite complaining of not having any time?

The fact that I actually do work other than feeding my family and keeping the house "clean."

It is in spite of all this that I have written 10,323 words so far. But the thing is, I think I might not be able to stop when I hit 50,000, because I'm only 20% in and the Burger King employees have only just discovered the body in the walk-in cooler...

I'm so taking a blogging break in December! Oy.

Will buy your Burger King novel when it's released, for sure!

Acccckkkkkk!

Stop the insanity!

I can't keep up!

My new role/job is kicking my butt in the time department.

BTW, you're welcome. I'm NOT posting over the weekend. I promise.

Believe me, it's killing me slowly, I have no stories left to tell my real flesh friends.
They've read it all.
That's me, the mute in the corner.

I am sure my house would be tidy and the laundry done if I didn't have to read so many blogs!

10,000 words already? You are amazing!

Killin' me, babe! It's killin' me!

Aaaaahhhhhh.... I type as I kick back, my fingers taking a break from typing.

I'm telling you, GoBloMeMoFo* was the best idea I've ever had. We all still get to sort of play NaBloPoMo and save the velveteen rabbit at the same time. There should be some sort of "group effort" prize.

As it is, I'm not even sure who has been feeding my kids. They look fine, but if I don't start paying more attention, they'll both be in the hospital with the moosh.

*Again, "GoBloMeMoFo" was Playgroupie's phrase. I just ran with it. ;)

Thank you for not posting every day (I'm NOT either, but thanks for the link). Every time I open up Google Reader I feel anxious. I want to kill whoever came up with this stupid idea. I can barely keep up with my blog reading when people aren't posting every bloody day!

Oh, and I'm very impressed with your novel writing so far. I'm excited to hear how it turns out.

Annette Lyon said...

Let's hear it for a 5-figure word count! YES!

And now I'm curious about the body.

Dapoppins said...

How can you be so far in when it is the only the 8th day?

Brillig said...

Hahahaha. I'm sorry we're causing you so much trouble. :-D

And wow! Congrats on the word count! That's awesome!!!

Maureen said...

Yeah, come to think of it, I wonder if ANYONE is going to post in December; they'll all be recuperating and massaging those poor overworked fingers...

Blue Momma said...

I'm not writing a novel and I'm still way behind on my reading. Hence the ten comments in a row from me you are finding in your email today!!!

Yet I keep reading because it is hard to live vicariously though others if I don't.
