Another Nano Win!

I finished 50,000 words! I'm happy to say that by about 45,000 words I finally found the story I really wanted to write :-) That's what Nano is all about, right?

Happy Writing!

Haiku Prompt for Mama's Losin' It

This week's writing prompt at Mama's Losin' It included writing a haiku about what you see out your window. I can never resist haiku - love them!

puddles under swings
reflect dripping pewter skies
playtime chased inside

Just a short piece again this time, because most of my writing time is going to Nano.

Top 10 Pet Peeves

This is my first time to participate in Writer's Workshop at Mama's Losin' It. I chose to write for the Top 10 Pet Peeves prompt. I figured it was just a list and I'm in the middle of Nano (I'm on track with my word count at 8463 words)

Top 10 Pet Peeves

10. Trash that gets left on the floor next to the trashcan.
9. Repetitive music on video games
8. Smudged lenses on glasses
7. Chicken that doesn't get done in the time the recipe calls for
6. Walmart not carrying their brand of chocolate chips now that we're entering baking season
5. Bad directions (and getting lost as a result)
4. Broccoli crumbs in the bottom of the frozen broccoli bag
3. Telemarketer/credit card/political phone calls
2. Being interrupted while reading the end of a really good book
1. My own whining and complaining (For more on how I've tried to combat this read this)
