Just Finish Something Already!: Writing & Needles (it's a start)

Not Inadequate Blog Hop

On the crafting front, I'm completely counting the fact that I bought new sewing needles.  That's one step toward the massive assembly line project I need to start.   Soon.  I don't have fabric.   I haven't made a pattern yet.  But I have needles.  And that's a start.

But that's not all . . .

Actually, I took that picture some time last week.  As of this morning, Ella is at 60%, and I woke up early this morning to hit the 10k mark.  So now I have an "O" sticker and am officially at 20%, which  (yes, by the way, thanks for pointing it out) is not where I should be to finish this month.  But that's ok.  I'm totally cool with that.  And I have plenty of time to catch up.  The key is that I wrote every day.  Even just a little bit.  Even on really cruddy days.  And that ain't nothing.

(For the record, Harper is not actually writing anything.  I bought her a special notebook when I bought Ella's, and Harper gets a sticker if she sits at the table and "writes" on a page while we get our work done.  It works.  Behold, the power of the sticker!)


  1. wait, you're only a couple days off from where 20% would be, right? are we farther into November than I thought? (totally possible!)

    I'm in the process of messing up your dinner rolls, I think. I accidentally used 1/2 cup vegetable oil, so I dumped in some cornmeal to try and even it out. we'll see how it goes...

  2. Good job, Novelists! Seriously, I really admire all you NaNoWriMo people. I am thinking about joining in next year.

    Stickers are magic, aren't they?

  3. Let me know how that cornmeal worked out, Amy! ;-)

  4. I'm gonna have to hold you to that next year, Deb. Might as well buy some stickers for yourself now! hehe
