11/11! Doing something fun on this date to celebrate the eleven-ness is a tradition that goes way back.
So, this ended up being sort of a strange day, Nano wise. On the one hand, I didn’t actually get very much done. Just felt kind of stuck, and spent time trying to figure out how to make things work, but wasn’t able to do so in a way that allowed me to then follow-up and actually write the ideas out. Grand total for the day: 1,103. Not too bad, really, but not that great, either.
On the other hand, I had a blast at the write-in! Met some new people, reconnected with old Nano friends, and just had a great time. Sometimes it’s not about word count, sometimes it’s about the social aspect, about being in this crazy word-spewing wackiness together and celebrating that, and that’s definitely what last night was. So, shout-outs to everyone who was at the write-in Tuesday night at Au Coquolet in Berkeley for making the whole thing super fun. Hope to see some of you at future write-ins!
Meanwhile, I think it’s time to jump ahead again with SA, and get back to writing whatever is coming to me, whatever I have ideas for, even if it means that – for now – I have to leave some mostly-but-not-yet-fully written parts hanging.
