It might be a slow month here at the dot com.
My work conference ended yesterday, and thank god. Pretty much everyone who was working it cried during the closing plenary, when the board president thanked us for working our asses off to put it on even though things have been a shit storm funding mess here since April, really.
So my days were crazy exhausting days full of bad hotel food, bad hotel air, unsolvable technical riddles, and lots of talking to people. My evenings and mornings and occasional breaks were full of the loveliness of D.Jack, who I'd invited to come hang out with me.
It was a brilliant idea, I have to tell you, because without him there, I would have been dreading the whole thing. With him there, I could tread water through the endless useless Skype conversations with our techie (who tried his best) to get to the fun parts.
Now, back to reality, back to regular work, thank christ, with a contract and everything.
And back to National Novel Writing Month. Not that I was ever there to start, not like Zoom and her thousands of words (go Rosemary go!), because I have been and still am, wrung out.
I don't feel creative at all and I have no plot.
But I do have an opening scene and a general question I'd like to explore.
So. Tonight it is. In I dive and we'll see what happens.
To keep myself going, I'm going to post what I write every day - without editing, mind - to a new blogspot: Start Here Tomorrow.
I don't promise it'll be good, but I do promise it'll be there. Encouraging comments very very very welcome.
