I’ve been trying to do some kind of weekly update on this blog, but this week I don’t feel like I have much to report. My daily log has been “still sick. nanowrimo: X words.” for about a week.
I could tell you something I didn’t manage to work into last Monday’s post, that the weekend before this we went over to a friend’s house with a bunch of other people and had food and watched a boxing match. I knit, not so much for the weird contrast as because I was afraid of being antsy—I’m not really a boxing fan. Group consensus was that HD makes everything much more gruesome. In the slow-mo replays of punches, we could see the fighters’ faces ripple from their chin up to the ear. So: I learned that boxing is kind of interesting when there are people around to tell you about technique, but also, pretty gross. I finished the second sleeve of the sweater I’m (occasionally) working on, while we watched the fight.
My NaNoWriMo word count is now over 37,000. I need another 800 words for today, and instead I’m writing this, which doesn’t help. The process continues to be hard, but (mostly) fun.
So yeah. Writing, work, coughing. A little reading. Playing with this neat synthesizer cartridge for the DS. It’s a week.
