Must write!

Time to concentrate on NaNo, gotta pound out 10,000 words this weekend, and that's all there is to it.

Got through Carol's funeral (very nice, high mass, communion -- got a blessing from the priest and didn't end up with a scar on my forehead ala Mina Harker), got through the board meeting (everything passed without a hitch, Rachel and I stood on our feet for an hour and a half doing our session) and got through the Oregonian article on Wednesday (no big deal, all things considered).

We better have turned a corner now. That's all I'm going to say about it.

Funny. I'm really enjoying 'The Kite Runner' now. Of course too late to go and discuss it. It's a good inspiration for my novel, though, since it's first-person autobiographical.

Off to work! I'm going to lose touch with some of my friends, but I'll catch up eventually. (I did catch the posts from my Nadal community about his girlfriend. Don't despair! He's so young yet. He has many girls, guys, women, etc. to come.)

Happy Veteran's Day to those of you who are Americans and care.

So glad you have a lot of the stress behind you now. Missed ya here.

Sometime tell what the 'Kite Runner' is about.

And finding ten thousand words ... have fun.

Just did 1801 words, and they were pretty funny! Here's the link to my profile page and excerpt, if you're interested:

No Chick Flicks, Please

The 'Kite Runner' is interesting to me because it's so culturally different than anything I've experienced. It's about a young boy growing up in Afganistan before the Russians come. I'm now to the point where the country's been invaded and he and his father are escaping. I think he ends up coming to America and trying to make his way in a strange world, but he has to come to terms with these awful things that happened when he was a boy. His best friend is his servant, and it's fascinating how they interact.

Anyway, I'm taking a break, blogging and playing a game before I return to the job at hand!
