The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

... and I'm back from lunch and with 3,500 words so far! I'm just about through Chapter One. OME, it feels so good to write. I haven't written--truly written--in so long that I'd forgotten the feeling of becoming so immersed in a story that the rest of the world fades away. (I'm hoping that I can forget it again because, after today, it's back to the grindstone for me.)

I was worried that I wouldn't be inspired by the story, which happened the last time I tried NaNoWriMo. Plugging through a novel you could care less about sucks. But I've fallen in love with the story and the characters, and I'm not even out of Chapter One.

Of course, ask me in 12 hours--or 18 hours--how I feel then. ;) But so far, so good.

    WooHoo! Great job. I wish I could do that. (I'd like to send my family on an around the world trip or something. That and find a sugar daddy. Then I could write. Of course, I could! Yeah!)

    Have a great day writing!

  • YAY!!!
  • Awesome! :D
  • Loving a story and really wanting to write it is such an amazing feeling, I am so glad for you. A chapter already - that's brilliant! (Unlike me, battling to put together a 100 word drabble :( )
  • Yay! :) Good luck and enjoy! :)
