NaNoWriMo Day 6. Also Skeet Shooting Season Starts Today.

It has made writing a challenge today. I can’t focus on any one piece adequately, so I’m hopping around, adding a little here, throwing in a paragraph there, starting something new. My work is edgy today. Slow. Angry.


And I’m shot, if you’ll pardon the pun. I hope I’ll be able to get a few more words in later today, maybe as the sun goes down and the skeets are all dead, but I have more words written than I did at the beginning of the day, and that’s something.

  • Essay: “Processing the Leftovers” 1051 words
  • Essay: “Betty Off-Her-Crocker” 1156…
