Joey Mousekin's Tale

November 1, 2017

I set this page up for November last year and I'm just leaving it for this year, too.

My first day count was 5233.  Not bad considering how awful I have been feeling!

Living in Caine's HOld

November 2, 2017

Day 2 -- 5371 (10,604).  Most years I would be doing 10k for the first few days.  I hope to do that later this month when I hope to be feeling better.  This is not the time.

Beware the Wrath of Bunny Hopper

November 3, 2017

Day 3 -- 2246 (12850).  Really not feeling well.  I sure hope this clears up.

Up to our Asses in Alligators

November 4, 2017

Day 4 -- 3176 (16026).  Feeling a bit better today, but still not great.  I hate this stuff.  I only have a couple more days of antibiotics and I sure hope they do the job.  I don't want to be as miserable as I was before, and I don't want to be back in the hospital.

Would also like to not fear eating.  Only had a couple meals since I came home.  I just can't face it.


November 5, 2017

Day 5 -- 5488 (21,514)

Well, it's writing.  I won't say anything more than that about it.

Still feeling pretty lousy, though.  I wish I could get past all of this.  I don't think I've ever had such a miserable start to a NaNo.


Medusan Mutation

November 6, 2017

Day 6 -- 6132 (27,646)

Russ has been taking me for rides, and even though it is dark out by the time he comes home, the rides have been nice.  The car is warm and everything is pleasant.  I am working at feeling better. The writing went well today, but I still feel as though I'm floundering in it.

I fear this is going to be a very long month.


November 7, 2017

Day 7 -- 3058 (30,704)

Not so well today.  Really kind of miserable, in fact.  Just kept going back to bed and trying to sleep through stuff.  Can I please get past all of this and have a little bit of fun?

For the Honor of the Hunt

November 8, 2017

Day 8 -- 6502 (37,206)

Okay, so this is better. Went to the Thrift shop tonight and found some cute little cat things plus a fun holiday tea pot.   That was enjoyable, though I kept getting dizzy as we walked around.  All in all, though, very nice. 

The writing picked up, too.  The novel is going to be far shorter than I want in the first draft, but I don't care.  I'll have it done.



November 9, 2017

Day 9 -- 6801 (44,007)

Closing in on the 50k mark.  That's a win for NaNo, though I'll be going far beyond that number.  This novel might not make it much more than 60k, but I still have something else to write after it, so that's fine. It'll be fun.

Doing better today.  I hope it keeps going this way.

Bitterly cold night, though.  Blah.  I want a longer, warm autumn.  AT last no snow in the forecast at the moment.
