Yes, I managed to wake up and it is always good to do it without pain and with some time for me. I like to live my life in my own rhythm not being pushed and forced.
There is a strong wind outside the youngest has to get out of bed now. No way it can get at school safely. The bus-kid starts the car, I make an extra pot of tea to take with us on the way and we leave. The wind is a warm one which is good, could be good for the laundry for example if it wouldn't start to rain.
I woke up quite happy and yes I fell asleep a happier too. Although I cannot push myself in editing my #MarchMadness book I will join NaNoWriMo! I really feel happy about that and I already wrote 1021 words before I fell asleep. I will do it differently this time. I will not post everything here. I still don't know how and if Steemit changed the "ownership issue". @paulag started already, wrote two days, which means I am ahead of her. I loved reading both days and now I join too.
Fifty thousand words mean two thousand words a day! That cannot be so hard for a Steemian using a desktop and who can type with ten fingers blind. I can by the way but I do not have a desktop nor laptop. I am a mobile user only and what I will use is one single finger to type. No not a thumb or even two but one finger.
I signed up at the NaNoWriMo site but didn't know what to do next.
Do I need a buddy? I don't think so although it would be fun to have one. We could give our 50,000 words a bit extra by responding to each other's books in our book (well it isn't a book yet but we can pretend it is. Publishing won't be easy if you are a foreigner and want to do so by amazon.com or do they only discriminate Dutch customers and make their life a hell?).
Long story short Who likes to join?
You can write about what you like. A story, your memoirs, a tale or bundle with short stories, who knows you write the next bestseller diary. Wouldnt that be great?
I know many of you are short in time but you could (easily) write it through the day. Just type down your thoughts, short stories, and anecdotes. You can use your entries to the freewrites and other contests. I think our fisherman @myjob could be a writer too. A book about plants, cooking, baking, surviving and @olivia08 writes great posts. They might not count 2000 words but imagine if his poems, freewrites, entries to other writing contests are bundled what an amazing biography that would be.
So many here have potential. Why not use it?
This month (year) @freewritehouse. Do not let 50,000 words stop you. If your book counts 25,000 words or 15,000 it is a book too. Keep in mind the writing is just for one month! You can write 2,000 words or 5,000 a day and take a day off but writing daily is the best way to stay focussed and motivated.
Tag me if you join and you can count on my support and who knows I have a nice surprise for you too.
By now it is *6:36 an" and I sit in my car killing time with the youngest. The bus-kid already left and we took tea with us. This is a nice way to be productive and write. Still, onehour'sr time to kill left. Let's see how many words I typed in 40 minutes time...
835 words it is and this is including rereading and correcting some words I mistyped plus I needed google translate to figure out how to write one word.
I thought about writing a follow up of the story I wrote before but to be honest I do not know where to start it. I wrote 1021 words of it and think I need to start at an earlier time. So what I am going to do is think out a bit first before I write it. Perhaps I will use a part of it or what I wrote shows up later. Later today or tomorrow. I hope to read more NaNoWriMo entries soon.
Only 1050 words so far and it is already 2:21 in twenty minutes I have to get back in the car, slip-sliding off the land road. My gas bottle is empty so I need a new one. Still had a full one but it is better to have one extra in case of need. The need, in this case, is the heater. It works on gas too and might be the reason why I collapsed lately too. To be honest, I don't think so. Me not feeling well from one moment to another without a warning is caused by... (If I knew the problem could be solved, I guess it is a combination of being exhausted since the day I am born, a lack of sleep since the same day and the fact I am dehydrated.)
I should call the doctor to make an appointment but like I said it is not possible to drive to the hospital if I don't feel well. It is at least a 45 minute drive. The doctor also said I had to be there at 8 am. I can never make it if my youngest needs to be at school at 7:45 and the school will not be open earlier. Only thinking about how to arrange this already made me nervous so I decided it is better not to call today.
I figured out I need to write about 134 lines in my notes to have 1000 words. I give it a try with my "Once upon a time" or another tale. Tales. No matter what kind, I like tales most of all stories. With or without history and the best are the ones that pull you right into it, a different place and time. Writing is not as easy as they say. It is way easier to comment (something no one does here so you are safe and can write whatever you like. Join, join, join!)
My daughter just sent me some photos of her cat Rohni sitting on her shoulder. I am happy I don't need to drag one of my wolves this way. The eldest would bite me, he always snaps at me if he is happy, his way of showing love. The others know it is not appreciated (not true the youngest still does it too) and he does not care. For some reason, he is always extremely happy.
Back to the "Once upon a time".
By now it is 5:18 pm and I did not really come to writing. Even if the kids make homework they keep talking, asking me. I have had those days of making homework plus I have 40% of the time no idea what they are talking about. How come kids always think you did every school, every education and have all answers? It is a fact I always went to school, mainly because it was a hundred times better as at home (better not ask what kind of schools and teachers I had. Would they still be alive? Still are that mean and discriminating, beating up children?).
They probably say it never happened or they cannot remember they did. That is what all bullies say "You made it up", " I cannot remember it".
A "good" one I once heard.
A bully said to her victim (still suffering from it 20 years later!) after denying it for 20 minutes (it was on a Dutch tv-show named "the Reunion" or perhaps "bullies" all those programs are the same.): "You might be happy and feel better to hear my daughter is bullied too."
Why should a victim be happy if a kid is bullied? That woman plus her two close friend (bullies too) made a fine trio. What a stupid cows I still see them sit there. A lower specie as these three cannot exist.
Even as the teacher said he remembered their nasty behavior very well it did not impress them.
