Day 10

Today is day 10 of Camp NaNoWriMo.

I've gotten through the first 11 chapters. I've also cut down some of the future chapters, so now there's only 30 in total, so I only have 19 more to get through!

I go back to work on Monday and I'm trying to figure out how I can edit during my breaks. If I take my laptop, I'd have to leave the computer room every time I want to edit and that really isn't possible. (Confidentiality of the work is a huge issue, so we're not allowed to have electronics in the room near our work.)

Ideally I'd like to print out a chapter or two to take to work with me, but our printer ink is so hard to find and so expensive I don't want to waste my parents ink and I leave for work around 7am and the library isn't open at the time.

So it doesn't look like I'll be able to work on my stuff during work :( There's one reason to get an ipad or tablet or something.

Can you edit/write papers on a kindle fire or on a nook? probably not.

Not that it matters. I won't get my first paycheck until at least the 26th (then I have to mail it in to my bank so I won't have my money until like the 30th or first of may) and my first project ends on the 29th.

I can't wait to have money again. There's so much I need. I need bookshelves/some sort of shelving, frames, possibly a new dresser, a new desk. Plus concert tickets and of course I need to go visit my dear friend in Green Camp.

Alright, time to get back to editing.

  1. If you have the Microsoft Word app on your Kindle/NOOK then yes, you could, but it would be extremely annoying. However, I could say that if the library were open on your way home from work you could print out stuff for the next day.

    Also, hey, you know, I got my first paycheck yesterday, and I have plenty of paper and ink, and the ability to mail stuff to you. So, I could theoretically print out at least a few chapters for you and mail them. That way they would arrive to you just in time for work.

    Oh, and yes, you really do need to come visit. I am seriously considering the possibility of a weekend trip down to see you...on my motorcycle.

    BTW, it is day 10 of Camp NaNoWriMo and my total is still 164 words. I am sort of failing. But I will try to do a marathon of writing this weekend and next week I move to 2nd shift so I can write before work, which really works oh so much better for me. :)
