NaNoWriMo No. 2 – Chapters 7 & 8 pre-post

Only one person (that I know) of noticed an unfortunate misspelling in my last post (it has been corrected). The phrase was supposed to read:

” . . . when I lifted my legs to get out of bed, the movement triggered a series of cramps up and down both legs.”

I did not notice I had left out an important letter, and the phrase actually read:

” . . . when I lifted my legs to get out of bed, the movement triggered a series of craps up and down both legs.”

Very different meaning. I had a good laugh when it was pointed out to me, and I hope others did too.

Also, because of the mistake I made when I posted Chapter 6, some readers missed the Chapters 4 & 5 post. Here is what has been posted so far:

Chapter 1
Chapter 2 & 3
Chapter 4 & 5 (password protected)

Chapter 6 (password protected)

Chapters 7 & 8 will go live tomorrow morning in a password-protected post. 

Here’s my progress so far:


I wrote 745 words yesterday using my phone, and 2,650 this evening, the laptop keeping my injured leg warm, for a total of 13,255 words (per Scrivener). 

Anyone wanting to read the novel, please shoot me an e-mail requesting the password, or leave a comment below to that effect.

As a point of information, asking for the password does not mean I will subscribe, or even read, your blog. It just means you get the password. Perhaps I might get curious and check you out, perhaps not. 

One other thing. 

Last year I did a precis . . . I know some people like the precis. I did it last year because I stopped writing for a few months, and then I was not writing regularly.

This puppy is going to be finished before the end of the month. I won’t have time to write a precis, and the timeframe is short enough to perhaps make its absence irrelevant. If not . . . sorry.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

  1. I had a good laugh. I had a graphic picture in my head and it wasn’t a badly bruised leg :D

    After months of immobility, I totally sympathise. The only thing to do is read/computer fiddle and enjoy being waited on.

    Looks like you’re going good with the word count. Am enjoying this :)

      I studiously tried not to visualize anything, but glad it offered you some mirth.

      And yes, the words, at least for now, are flowing well. Glad you’re enjoying it.


  2. Ha! :-D I saw the misspelling and I laughed…and I knew what word you meant…but, I am not a spelling or grammar I let it slide…and didn’t inform you. Craps was much more fun! ;-)
    Your NaNo write is progressing well. Now, I hope the same for your poor legs.
    HUGS!!! :-)

      Glad to provide laughs, intentional or not. The world needs laughs.

      Leg is progressing as it should for being hurt. By this time next year I’ll probably have other problems, so I’m not too worried about it now (irritated, yes, but not worried).

    Yep. Saw it. Visualized it, even. Wasn’t pretty ;) probably due to typing on one of these effin’ iGadgets.


    • disperser says:

      No iGadget. I do have a Samsung gadget, but that was written on the PC.

      I am a fast two-fingers typist, but that means I don’t look at the screen when I type. I go back and read to ensure what I wrote is what I meant to type, but sometimes crap (literally) falls through the cracks.

      Sorry you visualized it . . . even if my mouth did curl into a smile at the thought of my words triggering visions.
