NaNoWriMo 2005: Day 4

I'm a bit behind. My sleep schedule is off and I'm not writing as soon as I wake up. Ugh! I hate this. Making steady progress, just not at the rate I wanted.

Greener pastures

I've been a long time user of Jarte, a wordprocessing app with a small footprint that handles RTF in a universal way. This had many advantages at the time, but sadly it's been blow out of the water by OpenOffice.org, which gives me the power of a high-end wordprocessor without the cost. It does everything Jarte did, and more.
Bye bye, Jarte. Next time I am forced to write on a computer that can't handle modern wordprocessors, I'll look you up.

Night Races

I had no idea that, sometime between midnight and now, NASCAR built a racetrack in my living room. My cat is making laps as we speak. It wouldn't be so bad, except they neglected to light the track, so my cat crashes into things repeatedly.
At least I'm already awake.

NaNoWriMo 2005: Day 3

Another 500 words or so, this time not a sex scene. And the characters are watching a sex scene.
I'm not trying to write pornography, honest!
EDIT: Went past midnight and still didn't get enough words in, and I started out ahead today. Only 5749 total. I'll have to work harder tomorrow. I had a hard time figuring out what to write. A consequence of writing without much of an outline.
