Boring NaNoWriMo update #12

Right now, word count is 24428. Still not half way there, with only just over a week to go. But I got this.

My writing plans last night were scuppered by having to meet some friends to receive some "stuff*". As is customary, this handover took place in a public house, leading to the consumption of hearty ales. My interlocutors turn out to be not entirely down with NaNoWriMo. Harsh words and phrases like "stupid", "waste of time", and "contributing to the ever growing mountain of shite books" were used. But I am in too deep to stop now.

In mere minutes I will be heading out to do my field research.


*the shady contraband that is the latest issue of Frank's APA.

Well, you can rest assured when I see these "friends" of yours, I will be asking them to account for the ways in which they spend their free time, and they better be doing something meaningful with it.

I may be exaggerating slightly for effect, though one of said friends did have to leave early to finish a sculpture he was working on.

Sculpture! What a waste of time. Why doesn't he/she look at real things instead?

(I am very funny.)

I believe we also called it a sad indication of where modern society was going. Or maybe I just thought it, either way: we were right.
