hmm

My NaNoWriMo experiment is essentially over; I'm not going to make the word count and it doesn't much resemble a novel anyway. But I have learned quite a few things in the process, so I'm not terribly disappointed. A useful failure, in that sense. One lesson: even for NaNoWriMo 'no plot' can be a problem. Or maybe it's just the awareness that there is no plot. In any case, while I can write several thousand words at a time fairly easily, making them hang together with anything in common besides their coming from me requires ...something else. Or some set of some-things else, with which in any case I am not at the moment provided. Still again, I got a fair ways along, and maybe the words there will come in handy as seeds for something at some point.

My, how delightfully vague.

Still not where I would like to be in terms of mood, perhaps obviously.

The kitties are warm and cute, though. Adjusting to each other, and in good health. That's all good.
