Being a Nanowrimo newbie I wasn’t really sure how it was going to work out and the first 3 days didn’t bode well. I returned to work to find someone had constructed a new building with all the stuff that was supposed to have been done the day before yesterday. Then got a phone call about another job, ‘Yes we’ll move you to another country but can you first take a few tests?’
I hate tests, I really hate aptitude tests*, I really really hate timed aptitude tests…
By Thursday night I had about 2000 words, very little sleep and a headache that needed its own pillow.
So not a good start then.
Friday was my day off and I glued myself to my keyboard playing catch-up, I was still there by Saturday night and crossed the 10,000 milestone 41 minutes before midnight! Hurray!
At some point on Saturday I remembered that I have a concert to get to tonight and that I needed to make brownies. I’ve never really baked anything but brownies seem to be important in my story so I thought I should at least see how hard they are to make. Seems a bit extreme for one paragraph but it’s chocolate so… it’s chocolate!
What have I learned? That there really is such a thing as too much chocolate (trust me), because my flat smells like a bakery and I can’t eat another bite.
And YouTube really can teach you something
