Fallen Behind

I have, through no fault of my own (wait, that's a lie, it's completely my own fault), fallen far behind on the word count for NaNoWriMo.  I need at least 6,200 words this afternoon to catch up.  I have less than 5,500 words.  Yes, you read that right, I have to write more today than I have written in the last six days just to end the week on schedule.  Can I do it?  Do you care? The world may never know.

On a happier note, my dog, Scooter, may be pregnant.  We'll know about the time NaNoWriMo ends. Will I finish my novel? Will I win NaNoWriMo? Is Becky's dog knocked-up? Can you handle the suspense?

Writer's Block

Will someone please explain to my brain that it's too early for writer's block? I have 3,000 words done so far, which is just barely behind schedule. But I need to be ahead of schedule. Scooter goes to meet the future daddy to my grandpuppies tomorrow (Figure that out, if you can.)  so I won't have any time to write tomorrow.  Thursday is my night to tutor my literacy students, so no writing on Thursday.  I need to get some words behind me if I'm going to make it through the week. Help!
