Awkward moments & NaNoWriMo

NEVER fall asleep with Oxygen on your TV.
Some people sleep walk, some people sleep eat.  I apparently sleep channel-surf.  When I fell asleep I was watching NBC and the end of Jimmy Fallon.  When I woke up, the Oxygen network was on and I was viewing a rather large array of,… um,… personal pleasure devices!  It took me a moment to reach the level of clarity necessary to realize that I was lying in bed, snuggled with my little guy, and watching a inhumanly large shocking pink phallus rotating at impossible speeds in impossibly large circles.  It didn’t look like it might be fun; it looked like a hard to explain trip to the ER.  Fortunately for me, the yard ape stayed snuggled and asleep so there were no awkward conversations need at 2am!  I did, however, change the channel.  Cold Case on TNT is a lot easier to deal with at that hour!

Gearing up for NaNoWriMo,…
I am truly hoping that I do better with NaNoWriMo this year than I have the last couple, especially last year.  They tell you to just write, not to edit and change things as you go.  Those things come later, after the month is over.  But when one is anal as I am about such things, that is a tall order!  But they are absolutely right, because my word count for the month was DISMAL!  I have fleshed out a story line, but there is something about it that I just don’t like and I don’t know what it is.  I can only hope it straightens itself out as I write.  Donovan is doing it this year, too, so that should be fun.  I have WAY more faith in my kid than I do me!  You can visit our profiles with the links under my NaNoWriMo badge in the menu under “Mama on the Net”.  We start November 1st!

  1. Now that would be awkward waking up to that, and I can not say that I’ve had the same experience although when I had a beta fish I fed him in my sleep. I can also write in my sleep which is rather weird when I wake up to a computer screen with typing on it that I don’t remember going to sleep writing. Weird.

    Anyways, I’m going NANOWRIMO this year too, I’m a friend of Donovan’s from a few years ago when my school band played at his school and we stuck around all day, Donovan was my host/twin for the day. I’m just wishing you the best of luck and I’m sure you’re kinks and stuff in your novel will work out at you write! And at least you planned! I just got the idea for my NANO yesterday :P
