Office Stock-Get ready to WRITE!

I hear you're asking all around ...

I almost had a heart attack this morning when my wireless connection kept refusing to connect. Seriously, it was horrible. I was doing everything it told me to do and it just kept maliciously laughing at me. Bastard machine. I fixed it, though, when I restarted the damn thing and forced it go through its startup routine a second time. And, lo, it worked. Which is a good thing or I would have been... without the internet all day? Terrible! Terrible! See, there's something to be said for using brute force and coercion on inanimate objects.

Okay. Nano stats:

Check that out! I have less than 3000 words to write for the month and still be considered a winner at NaNo and it's only the 17th. I can totally do that, guys! Totally!

Randomly, today is Donation Day for NaNoWriMo. Since the guys who run this are a non-profit, they rely on these donations to continue rolling out this program every year. Less than 4% of the people who participate have donated thus far. When I think of how awesome it is that people around the world have been brought together for this novel writing experience and only 4% think it's worthwhile enough for them to donate even a few dollars, it makes me sad.

Yes, I did donate. If I could have done more than I did, I would have. This particular NaNo has been one of the funnest I've ever participated in. Mostly because I'm doing well at it, but let's not get into that now, shall we?

Okay, my Public Service Announcement is over. You all can uncover your eyes.

Bookish stuff. Things of a bookish variety.
I'm rereading the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead as part of a re-read challenge and to get back in full-on VA mode since the final book is coming out in a few weeks.
I posted a review for Vampire Academy last night. I already read the entire series earlier this year, so it doesn't count toward my yearly goal (Kelly's rules for book reading in the new millennium, Article 6), but I'm absolutely loving being able to go back and write these in-depth reviews and roll around with the characters all over again.

Waiting on Wednesday - Last Sacrifice - And here's the 6th (and final) book in the VA series. It comes out on December 7th. I have plenty of time to finish up the series before then.
30 days of books... Day 66 - Best line out of this synopsis: Those well versed in fantasy novels and role playing games a plus. That is AWESOME!

Okay. I have to go get Cole up and moving toward bed.
