I hate work...

And that's all I'm going to say on that subject, else I'll go into an incoherent rant.

I registered for Nano, only I haven't written anything. Nothing. Yesterday, I had this great plot idea, only when I got home from work, it didn't seem so great because I just couldn't write it down. Not even as a note!

I've been telling myself that this means I'm obviously not a writer, and yet when I read over some of the fanfiction I've written previously, I amaze myself. Maybe it's all the stress I've been under since before summer, when I found out I was going to get laid off--and it just kept getting worse and worse. Only, I've never really felt stressed; I haven't exactly been overexerting myself.

Probably, it's just a minor setback, and as soon as I'm able to pull all-nighters instead of going to bed at the decent hour of 9 or 10, I'll probably be back in the swing of things. I seem to be able to write more while sleep deprived.

You can write; I've seen you do it.

What's funny is that I've got my sister hooked on it after she adamantly refused to even try. Then she signed up on the very first day and is doing a lot better than I am. *sigh*

It also doesn't help that every time I sit down at the computer my mom begins her sighing and huffing routine, like I'm putting her out or something. Either that or the various vagrants whom my other sister keeps as 'friends' are constantly wandering in and out.

Maybe I should write about my life. It's not interesting but I've got twenty-four years worth of material---some of which has been gleaned from older relatives.

I got a NaNo size plot bunny today too but no freaking way am I going to attempt 50 000 words before the end of the month! *clings to sanity* My muse lacks timing.

Yeah, when the bunnies bite, they usually do it at the most inconvenient times. And then, they hop away from from you, kicking and scratching, because they were just teasing you and didn't really want you to write the thing.

Ugh, I know, I always get great ideas at work but I'm too busy with the "patrons" to write anything down. I thought working in a library would be peaceful but it's really quite exhausting.

What is Nano? I've heard so many people mention it but I have no clue...

You'll find everything you need to know about it on that site, but basically it's a thing to write fifty thousand words in thirty days. I've already missed seven days because of my procrastinatory nature.
