Gales of November
The storm last night was incredible. It knocked our power out just a few minutes after I made my NaNo post, and the power stayed out until about 7:30 this morning. In fact the winds were so strong that Mom insisted I stay downstairs until the worst was over. This was inconvenient as we no longer own a full-length couch, so I ended up falling asleep in the Lazyboy and waking up around 6:30 all stiff and sore. I dragged myself upstairs and went to bed–it was still very very windy, but the storm had passed. The power came on and I’d had the track lighting over my bed on, so it was like, “SPOTLIGHT! Steph is SLEEPING!” Which of course woke me up, so I got up, turned the lights out, and went back to sleep again.
Dad took my laptop today. He woke me up early to ask, so I got up early and worked on the novel this morning – have already surpassed yesterday’s word count. W00t. Unfortunately our internet is out at home, and who knows when it will be back. Meh. But I suppose that means good things for my word count.
At work now. Whee.
