Bean Feed

Booo!

So, I didn't walk today either.  I woke up with a horrible headache.  The idea of going out in the cold and wet was not very appealing.  I decided to lay back down after eating breakfast and taking some Advil.  I actually napped on and off for several hours.  Luckily, when I got up, my headache was gone.  So glad for that!  I only ran out once this afternoon to hit a Pokestop so I wouldn't lose my streak.  I did that and came right back home. 

I spend the day not doing much. I watched some true crime shows on Prime and I watched Sunday's episode of The Simpsons.  I didn't even think about it yesterday!  I decided that updating my Mac would be a great idea tonight and started it and then I was stuck.  I had nothing to review for writing on NaNo tonight.  I just opened the old MacBook and opened Bean and wrote.  I got some of my writing done and then the update was done on the MacBook Pro.  I connected them over the network and transferred over what I had written.  I put it in Scrivener and finished my writing for the day.  After I type this out, I'm going to relax and read before bed.  I plan to walk tomorrow.  It's supposed to be overcast, but I don't think it's supposed to rain.  It's also double star day at Starbucks, so I might just go over there and do NaNo tomorrow night and write some pen pals letters.  We'll see how that goes!


Late start, but wow! :P

I didn't get to sit down and write for NaNo until just a while ago.  I hadn't planned to start so late today.  Why so late?  Well, let's see.  I walked as I always do.  I stopped by one place to see about after Halloween candy. :p . I got four bags of Halloween candy for 50% off. WHOO! lol . I got two bags of individual Reese's. YUM I also got two bags of this 'nut lovers' collection.  It has Mr. Goodbar, Hershey with Almond, Take 5, Paydays, and Reeses.  I was so happy to find this collection.  I usually don't find a collection of stuff that I like everything in the bag.  This is one where I like them all.I have a lot of goodies to snack on during NaNo. Yay!  It's funny that I got so many Reese's my main character, Sophie, LOVES peanut butter cups.  :P

So, I got my candy.  They also had some fuzzy 'at home' socks at the register for $1 a pair. I adore fuzzy socks, so I got three pair. lol . I came and had to sample my candy. :p . My friend texted and said he was coming straight from work and we'd go eat.  He said we'd eat quickly. I thought, great.  That way I can get home and write.  Well, we ate and it wasn't as quick as he said. lol He also had to pick up a few things at the dollar store.  He got me some chips and vitamins though.  Then, he got himself a milkshake.  When we does, he usually asks if I want a Frappe.  I did! :P . I rode with him to the grocery store.  He ran in for a couple of things and then ran him by his mom's.  He was in there a lot longer than he planned, so I didn't get some until much later than I had planned.  Oh well, I sat changed into comfy clothes and sat down.  I wrote 1942 words so that is just fine!  I don't think I'm going to add anymore tonight.  I need to pack up and put away my Halloween decorations and that is going to take a while..  lol . I have sooo many!

So, NaNo is off to a great start, I have snacks and I actually got a good start.  When I got home from my walk today, I finished re-reading the send half of book two.  I was ready to go when I sat down.  Now, I'm going to get my Halloween decorations put away.  Well, the ones that I don't keep up year round!  I also need to do my French, and then I'm going to fix dinner and read.  I started another true crime book last night.  This one is about Marie Hilley.  I've seen her story on Unsolved Mysteries and some of the true crime shows.  I'm looking forward to reading the book. She was a piece of work!

I used Scrivener for day one and I love it!  Bean is a great program, and I am grateful to have had it these last two years, but I know I'm going to enjoy Scrivener a lot!


Almost 9000

Yes, I have almost 9000 words for NanoWriMo so far.  I might write more today, I'm not sure yet. I decided to take a break for a bit.  I hit 1879 for today and I had 1856 yesterday.  I would have had more yesterday, but I was interrupted by a friend's phone call.  I was at a good count, so I stopped.  I can't believe I'm so close to 10,000 words!  It's flowing easily.  The story to me seems a bit boring though.  I don't know.  It might not be that bad.  I'm just very critical of it.   Oh well!  

I had a cup of coffee during my writing session.  The Seattle's best coffee is GOOD.  I really like it a lot.  I will definitely buy it again!  It felt funny putting it in my Starbucks tumbler. :P  Shh!  Anyway, it was delicious.  I would like to try more varieties of their coffees.

I got in my walk today.  It was overcast and chilly for the entire walk, but it didn't rain at all.  I was glad about that!  It's such a pain to walk carrying an umbrella!  I came home from my walk and relaxed a little bit, I then did my workouts and had lunch.  I watched Friday's episode of Deadly Women while I still have PS Vue.  I will only have a for a few more days, so I wanted to watch that.  After that went off, I made my coffee and settled in with the Macbook  I am writing in a program called Bean.  It's what I used last year for Nano too.  It's a good little program and it's free!  I like it.

After I post this, I might get out my Kindle and read for a bit.  I am not sure yet.  I don't need to write anymore today, but I still might do that.  It's really early yet, so who know?  I do know I'm probably going to take a bath and soak in their a bit.  We turn our clocks back here tonight so I'll get an extra hour of sleep.  That is always good, but the time change always screws up my sleep schedule!  Let's hope it isn't too bad.
