NaNo NaNo

Remember Mork and Mindy? Not if you're young.
I spent the weekend doing chores and typing madly. Progress is happening but I'm still playing catch up, hence not much blogging and fewer photos.
Word count is at 22772.
Tonight I have dinner to prepare, homework to help with (gotta hate those dangling participles) and a Nutcracker rehearsal. Yeah, I'm dancing in a local Nutcracker for the second year in a row. No, I'm not even remotely good at it. They just need my warm body as an "extra" more or less. My younger son has a lead role, though. He's the Nutcracker. Literally.

How does your son feel about your being in the show too? most kids would hate that I would imagine, but i can't help but to think this is a cool supportive thing to do.

I just printed off my NaNo novel from 2005 - the only year I've managed to reach 50K - with a view to start a second draft and write it properly instead of farting it out in a stupidly short space of time.

I haven't mustered the courage to start reading it yet; it's going to be awful.

My mother is a major player in her village amateur dramatics society. It is a source of great embarrassment to me; and I'm 33 and I live 500 miles away. I dare not imagine how mortified your son feels to have you in the show.
