I’m feeling particularly lucky.
I won $2 in the lottery.
I used the money to get 2 new numbers and didn’t win anything.
I also won a gift certificate in the Local Shop Hop. Whoopee! That almost makes up for not getting to go to SAFF.
The store I won it from is about an hour away. I won’t have time to claim it until after the next show at the opera opens. Now I know why people say winning the lottery is stressful.
I’m feeling so optimistic that I have signed up to eat something bigger than my head to write a 50000 word novel in 30 days. During the month of November to be exact. November when I have dress rehearsals at the opera, a monumental birthday, Thanksgiving and necessity of traveling to acquire yarn. That’s right. I’m going to attempt National Novel Writing Month. I have officially lost my mind and if you see me wandering around Decatur muttering to myself just chalk up it to a plot development crisis and be gentle.
I don’t know yet what this is going to do to the blog and my knitting time. Last year I obsessively posted to the blog every day in November as part of another absurd challenge and had trouble stopping in December. I’m hoping the same euphoria will not only carry me thru 50000 words but my Christmas knitting too.
Meanwhile, this week I’m pre writing a few blog entries to post later in the month. Just in case I can’t come with an additional 300 words a week to keep everyone entertained and updated. Plus it will make me write everyday so by the time I actually have to start the book I will have locked myself into the routine. I hope.
