Today was the weekly food shop and I had to take the bag of wool to the person who had asked for it on the Facebook Freecycle group. They live only a few minutes walk from the Co-op and had a really cute front garden full of gnomes. By the time I'd done that and finally got round to putting the clock in the car back an hour, and put all the stuff away in the cupboards, fridge and freezer, the morning had more or less gone.

This afternoon was spent doing not very much until a little while ago when I got my act together and managed some words. I'll be glad when NaNoWriMo is over because I would like to occasionally miss a day. However, I'm determined to get the badge for writing every single day, so I need to keep going for another week.

I will carry on writing this novella(?) when NaNo is over, but I'll set a slightly lower monthly target, partly so I can take a day off every now and then but also because I'll need to spend time on research and plot wrestling. I had fairly detailed notes for the beginning and I know how the story is resolved, but currently my notes regarding the middle just say:

"Middle:Conflict/complication. Need sufficient incidents to keep the beginning and the ending apart in an interesting way." :-)
