I had a bad day

file0002110782787

 

Saturday was…. well…it was a bad one. I did not make my goal, not even close. Instead of the 1,667 words, I actually wrote 702 words. After writing, I always check my number of words on site with the word counter. When I did, I think I broke it.

 

 

On Sunday after finishing my goal for the day, back to the NaNoWriMo to update my new word count. It looked as though my over all total was just 702 words!

Anyway, I have been keeping a good word count daily. My stats look messed up and it may appear that I have written everything in one day but this has been a daily work out.

Day 1 – 2107
Day 2 – 1509
Day 3 – 1466
Day 4 – 1828
Day 5 –  702
Day 6 – 1547
Day 7 – 1917

It’s all good! I’m still writing. The words are there saved and my count is good. I could not be happier and more proud of what it is that I am doing even if what I am doing does not make one bit of sense to anyone else! I am thrilled! Absolutely, positively, freaking amazingly, wonderfully joyfully, thrilled!

“Bad Day” Lyrics:

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion’s gone away
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You’re faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life’s been way off line
You’re falling to pieces everytime
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day

(Oh.. Holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I’m not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You’ve seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day
Had a bad day

NaNoWriMo WiPW!

Clockwork Clouds

Authors! It’s November! And that means…

I’m hijacking today’s Work in Progress Wednesday, because what is more ‘in progress‘ right now than NaNoWriMo?! Although we’re only on Day Two, hopefully your stories are unraveling in some inspiring ways. I wanted to take this opportunity to extend my offer once more.

Would you like to be featured on WiPW?

It’s an offer I’ve made before, and something I will continue to keep running on my blog (You can see it at the top of my page, in fact!), mainly because I love hearing people’s ideas and the think we all function better when we share our advice. Nothing gets me more excited to write something of my own, as when I see something awesome that someone else has produced. I put down books, leave films, finish games, feeling positively buzzed. So I…
