I Should be Writing

Today is the second day of NaNoWriMo and I'm not as awake as I should be. (My stomach is acting up again so I haven't been able to eat solid food since Thursday which I bring up because I think that might be catching up with me. I went to bed at 9 last night so I should be all well rested, but I swear I could go back to sleep right now if I wasn't responsible for the children.)

For good news, I did figure out how to see who had 'buddied' (like Facebook's 'friended') me there and connect back. Hooray, for that. (It doesn't send emails, you have to look yourself.) And I managed to get my words in yesterday. Not so sure about today though. At some point I have to tell Little Boy that he can't play Lego Star Wars all day for two days straight.

For bad news, (unless you'd been wishing I'd shut up for a while) I will probably not be posting here quite so much until I've either given up completely or NaNoWriMo is over. I did spend some time crafting, and put pictures up to be published on Thursday, so you'll get to see my latest non-writing burst of creativity before I bury myself in nothing but words.

On the completely selfish, needing information I'm too tired to research angle -- I've been getting weaker. I couldn't open Little Boy's Halloween candy today without resorting to scissors. My guess is lack of food makes my body start using the more quickly accessed muscle tissue -- despite the fact that I have plenty of fat which is supposed to be stored energy.... But back to the question-ish part. I think I should go to the gym to remind my body that I still need those muscles, but I am tempted to stick to something easy like the treadmill. Do you think that's enough or should I push my way through the other exercises too?

(For calories, I'm drinking heavy-on-the-milk drinks like cocoa and chai lattes. Those supposedly nutritious energy drinks/diet shakes make me throw up as fast as solid food does, so I've picked up some V-8s claiming full servings of veggies are mixed in -- actually the one I've tried so far was a Fruitable but I've been able to keep that down so I'm hopeful).

But today I'm supposed to talk about writing.

And I have nothing. Or nearly nothing.

Today's writing will make my main character face (insert ominous music -dah-dum).... Her family!

And off I go. To nap. Errrm. To write. Yep, writing. All day. That's me. Writing.
