the rules for NaNo ... camping version
My grandmother (and this is not a picture of my grandmother) used to tell me that I needed to look the part. No matter what I did, I needed to look the part.
Tough thinking I am a writer when I wear grungy sweat pants, old t-shirts, and my dog tells me when my time is up for the day (he's got a small bladder, active appetite, and thinks of me as his favorite toy).
So, I'm instituting a few changes.
1) I'm closing the door when I write.
2) There is a timer set so I won't be late for the dog's meds and meals.
3) I am actually going to brush my teeth and hair before I start slaving over a keyboard ... I scared the mail person the other day doing an imitation of Medusa (and no, I did not look like Uma Thurman)
4) There will be a theme song. Right now, me thinks it will be either instrumental or in Spanish so I can't scare the puppy when I sing along!
