Camp NaNoWriMo and Masochism
I’ve been crazy-busy in the writing cave this week. Working hard at getting One Gold Knot ready for release. In addition, I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo and have committed to completing 30,000 words of Dominant Cord, Book 3 – title as yet to be determined. I’m off to healthy start with my word count currently sitting at 5386 after 2 days, but that’s still a fair way from my goal.
July was supposed to be nothing but writing and a some low-key preparation for our upcoming trip home. Somehow, we’ve added dinner guests and a trip to Germany to the calendar. No rest of the wicked, I suppose.
It’s odd how completely disconnected one subject can seem from another, yet once you see the thought progression, it makes total sense. This happens to me a lot. I’m a multi-tasker. I’m often surfing the intertoobz whilst having a conversation, so it’s inevitable for something within the conversation to send me scampering to Teh Google, and before you know it, I’ve said something seemingly irrelevant to the conversation and given someone, usually Math-geek, a WTF moment.
Yesterday methods of learning wound up at masochism in only three steps. Okay, for some of us that’s not such a stretch.
Anyway, I was having an internet conversation about learning through song. Someone wondered if there was a song for learning times-tables, which made me think of the Element Song by Tom Leher. So, of course, I had to wander over to YouTube to watch it – because I’m easily distracted like that. As I was listening to it, my eyes wandered to the sidebar, because I’m easily distracted like that, and with one click, I was at masochism.
