NaNoWriMo 2012 - Day 26

NaNoWriMo Day 26 - 

     Twenty-Six!!! I cannot believe I have made it this far! I am at 40,767 words with 9233 words to go with five days to write them in. That's 1847 words per day to win this thing! Woot Woot!
     After five years of trying, I am beyond thrilled to be so close to the finish line. I see light at the end of the tunnel and it is be-yoo-tee-ful!
     Having tackled 4325 words today in order to catch up from Thanksgiving slacking, I am pretty much typed out. I saved enough words to share this bit of silly with you.
     Horse hide protection. Folks gotta do what folks gotta do to protect their furry friends from overzealous sharp shooters! Deer hunting in the midwest. Boo yah!

"The writer writes in order to teach himself, to understand himself, to satisfy himself; the publishing of his ideas, though it brings gratification, is a curious anticlimax." 
 ~Alfred Kazin, Think, February 1963

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you."  ~Ray Bradbury

"Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia."  ~E.L. Doctorow

Woooo Hooooo!! Congratulations in advance!! I am so happy for you! Right now I am hearing part of the theme song from the old Mary Tyler Moore show....."You're gonna make it after aaaaaalllllll." And then she throws her hat in the air. Sorry, you're probably too young to remember!! And it's corny anyway!!

Holy cow and CONGRATS!!!
That is a LOT of words....go-go-GO!
I too hate deer hunting season; I live too close to wooded areas and often wonder if a shell will come through my studio.
If a hunter can't tell the difference between a horse or a deer....just sayin'....maybe they shouldn't have a GUN or have the ALCOHOL with the GUN???
*shakes head*

Sweets can I just say it's been an honor watching your wings unfurl. I've saved all our conversations for when you become famous and I can say 'yep, I knew her when...' it'll cost ya for me not to share. Teehee! Love the horses!

WoW! Wonderful! I am proud of you!

Thought of you especially the other day when visiting a friend and she had some new books to show us about a photographer. I had never heard of her before, and unfortunately they found her photographs after her death, but they are fabulous. Years ago, all black and white photos. Try to look her up. "Street Photographer" Vivian Maier
