Licorice Lasso

A lot of people say, "I'd do NaNoWriMo if it wasn't in November. November is such a bad month. February would be better."

You know what? I completely agree. And that's why I think it's great to have it happen in November. Even if I don't get to 50,000 words, I know I will have written so many more words than I would have if I wasn't playing along.

November's so full of family situations: school conferences, music concerts, half days at school, and two kids with strep throat. And that's just been in the last two days. But I will find time to write where I can.

Today, I will pull out my licorice rope, but instead of using it as a whip, I will fashion into a lasso and pull in as many words as I can. I have four hours today. Four hours to spend at The Vault. Four hours to write as much as possible.
I'll let you know how many words I'm able to capture in my licorice lasso. And feel free to join in.

Whoaa! That cowgirl doll-cake with the licorice lasso is super funny!!!
It's 10 am on the east coast. I've been working since 6 (with lots of kid distractions in between) and FINALLY I'm done :)
I hope your word round up goes well today Jolie.

Kim, I know she is funny, isn't she? That lasso is sort of inspiration for me today though. Yay for being done. I'm just getting started.

She's great! I love it! Today I have you-know-who pie dough and writing group, but I might manage to finish the words left over from yesterday if I set her to work on something...yay!

There was supposed to be a comma in there somewhere. ;)

I love my verification word: upturged.

Holly, I think I "upturged" some words today. I was a little bit relaxed with my giddy-up and go today but I did manage to wrangle in a little over 3000 words which feels great. I'm thankful for each one.
