*ducks in quickly*
I'm alive. Just thought you should know. And NaNo has not conquered me yet -- I'm super behind, but I think I can make it.
Also, I think I've managed to make my Germany pictures a public file on Facebook, so you should be able to see them here. (If the link doesn't work, someone tell me so I can fix it, 'kay?)
Also, I got to see my family for an early Thanksgiving! Life is great!
Ok. That's all I have time for.

NaNo Has Begun!

Ok, so it actually started Saturday. But Saturdays are my longest days, and then Sunday was a newcomer's lunch at church and a long hiking adventure, so I was exhausted when I got home and went to bed at 8:30.
But today! Today I sat down and cranked out over 5,000 words (the number for today is supposed to be at 5,001, and I think I'm going to write some more tonight and get myself something of a cushion).
My protagonist is bitter and sarcastic, so very easy to write (shush, Dad) and my ploy of writing dialog twice -- once in German and once in English "translating" has already proven both fun and word-heavy. :D
So yeah -- back to work I go!

(Oh, also: it may look like there's two of me posting on here for a while -- I'm trying to figure out how to switch blog ownership from one gmail account to another, and so far have only figured out how to let my other account post as an additional author. So... yeah. But it's still just me.)
