Today, I'm going to be liveblogging as much as is physically possible given my work and class schedule. This blog will be updated as often as I can, though it's hard to say whether I'll be editing this document or making a new one. I'm aiming for 3-4k, so we'll see if I can actually get it done.
12:00–Beginning the liveblogging task. Word documents open, YouTube video on and playing. Let's do this!
12:19–Am in the process of re-breaking a character's leg and keep changing my music. Anybody know any good music to break bones to?
12:24–Logged onto MSN for the first time in months. An utterly pointless gesture; I don't know what I'm hoping for.
12:33–Turning music off. Time to pump out rest of words for yesterday/today and get to bed.
12:42–Word count met–for yesterday. 764 of today's words written. Going to bed. Will continue updating tomorrow.
11:08 a.m.–Computer's on. In the process of checking my internet related things before class/writing. Actually, this particular class doubles as writing time.
11:23–Time to get writing. Nothing much new on the internet this morning means I have no more excuses to procrastinate.
11:42–Have to turn off computer and finish getting ready for class. Will continue to take notes in my journal so I can update this liveblog once I have internet access.
Word Count: 951/3000-4000
12:00–Leave for class. Walk twenty minutes to campus.
12:20–Arrive at foreign language building. Talk about Nano with another local Nano buddy.
12:30–Class starts. Must do at least a little work before I can start writing.
12:53–Reached my writing time! Let's see how much I can actually get done.
1:00–Pause to do our part of the presentation.
1:03–Back to writing!
1:18–Leave class to go grab lunch.
2-4:15–Work. Work, work, work.
4:31–Checking the internet once more before I write. Forever.
4:48–Getting down to business. Bring it, MS.
5:27–Keep checking my email. This is no good. Logging out of gmail right now. Right. Now.
Word Count: 1448/3000-4000
5:35–Got a Skype message. Now talking to my aunt instead of making dinner, which means I need to buckle down and write some more for as long as this conversation lasts.
7:00–Somehow dinner turned into a ninety minute affair. Our apartment has also added two more guests. Let's see how productive I can actually be.
7:20–Still haven't written a word. Conversation proving to be more distracting than I would've thought.
8:06–Just got off the phone with my dad. Clearly human interaction is going to be the death of me. The headphones are going on. Time to get serious.
9:52–Got back from a long second dinner/dessert run. Brought my computer and wrote a few hundred words.
Word Count: 2016/3000-4000
10:44–Have been typing steadily for nearly an hour. It's looking like I could finish on time.
Word Count: 2762/3000-4000
Word Count: 3076/3000-4000
So, I met my goal. It wasn't pretty, and it wasn't by nearly as wide a margin as I'd have liked, but it worked. Hell yes!
