As long as I’m daydreaming and not getting things done… Why shouldn’t he get a little wishful thinking too?
And you can play with Einstein if you like. He’s very agreeable here. Thanks JES!
In other news, in NaNoWriMo, for what it is worth, I’ve written 23,001 words. Whether ot nor any of these words make me a better writer remains to be seen

Glad you liked it. 🙂 It can become an obsession if you’re not careful, though — just what you need, right???
Tickled beyond words to hear of the NaNo progress (both yours and everyone else’s). But a “better writer”? Ignoring for the moment what that seems to imply about the writing you’ve already put on display here… I’ll just say if you’re as good at EDITING all those words as you are at WRITING them, you shouldn’t worry overmuch.
Ha. Just thought, maybe somebody should designate December as NaNoEdiMo. I’m there!
JES, here’s me stepping away from the obsession. My obsession suitcase is full.
Thanks for the encouraging words, and just so you know–March is NaNoEdMo. That way you get a few months to recover from November.
JES, I think I have seen December as Nanofimo (finishing month, don’t you know?) because we all realize that a 50k novel is pretty durn short.
And Marta, remember that it’s the journey that matters, not necessarily the destination.
Whether it makes you a “better” writer or not, it gets your writerly juices flowing and builds your writing practice and keeps you in the conversation. I don’t know how writing everyday can’t help improve a person’s chops, even if you aren’t doing any editing.
Congratulations on your progress so far! Yay!
I know what you mean – I’m wondering if I’ll ever actually get scribbled manuscript ready to send out to agents. Still, it’s a great exercise. You are doing awesome. I’m cheering for you!
