I still have Zero words.
I should be writing.
Instead, I'm surfing the web.
There is something SO wrong with me.
I just can't seem to grasp the words in my head.
Slippery little buggers.
Elusive snots, those words.
The barn doors are open,
but the horses refuse to leave.
This sucks!

    Write a sex scene. It doesn't even matter if it makes it into the finished story, just start writing about a couple of your characters going at it and at least that way you have a word count bigger than zero and maybe it'll shake things loose. If you hate it and it doesn't fit, you can cut it out of the story in December.

    In fact, if you write a sex scene that somehow includes a rubber chicken, a pair of pink-fur-covered handcuffs, a bird named Trixie, and a DVD of the Happy Days "Jump the Shark" episode and email me a copy of the scene, I'll make a fabric postcard to send to you as a prize. Seriously. :-)

    Oh so very tempting!! In fact, I think I just may take you up on that challenge. And post it here!

    I see you have written 886 words now. Does thet mean you completed Deb R's challenge?

    Well done for getting off the ground so to speak.

    Nope, those don't actually belong to Deb's challenge. They belong to the "I started one story but now I hate it" category. I'll start something fresh in a day or two (and perhaps include Deb's challenge in that). Work is killing me. Weekends are not mine for the rest of the month. Just a bad year all around for NaNo. I won't hit 50k, no way, no how... but I'll be damned if I quit.
