Today is a catch-up blog, but I haven’t been having to play catch-up with my NaNoWriMo challenge! I wizened up and took some earbuds with me today so I could plug into the iTunes music library loaded into my laptop and jammed to those while transcribing. It worked well although I later learned Ry-guy, who accompanied me to today’s write-in, was “embarrassed” his mother was “rocking out.” Meh. Between being out with fellow comrades, chatting about the craft, guzzling down a week’s worth of lattes at each write-in session (I’ve been to about 4 already and have another to go to tomorrow) and logging onto the free wifi connections at the various coffee houses we’ve been meeting at, I’ve found I don’t get as much transcribing done as I would like. Tomorrow I’m going to make sure I don’t log onto the Internet, either, and see how much more progress I make. I’ll update my word count at the end of that session and we’ll see how I’m doing. Right now I’ve got an awful kink in my neck and am seriously considering scheduling our next write-in over at the mall where they have several massage chairs set up and actual people giving neck and shoulder rubs. Twelve bucks for twelve minutes or three lattes. Yeah, that’s worth it!
Until tomorrow, NaNo, NaNo!
