7/30/10 402 posts in 10 1/2 years…

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

or about 3.2 posts per month. That seems right. (And this is after importing my NaNoWriMo blog entries and my “Unfinished Thoughts” from my abortive tumblelog at gohlkus.wordpress.com.)

9/2/04 I need an infinite number of hours and monkeys

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Because I haven’t done laundry in a while, and was sweaty from biking, I changed into my NaNoWriMo shirt yesterday immediately before my East Bay for Democracy (DFA) meetup. Subsequent conversations make it likely that I might throw my hat into the ring again for NaNoWriMo 2004. I like the format for this blog so […]

2/20/03 stewing in my subconscious

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

This update is simply to note that I haven’t written any NaNoWriMo blog entries in a great while. Also, I haven’t worked on the novel since November. It’s stewing. Yeah, that’s it: it’s stewing in my subconscious. New political developments threaten daily to make the novel obsolete, a problem I will have to tackle when […]

11/30/02 44,968 words in the next 10 hours and 12 minutes

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Unless I can write 44,968 words in the next 10 hours and 12 minutes, which I won’t, my NaNoWriMo experience will end in failure. I haven’t entirely lost interest in finishing this novel. I think NaNoWriMo spurred me to actually start writing and to be excited about it. For many reasons, though, the main one […]

11/12/02 fear and sleep: equal culprits

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Well, hello. I have written 5,032 words so far. I should have written 18,333 by the end of the 11th. I am merely 8 days behind the projected pace, after 11 days, but am now making an attempt to catch up. That, plus freelance work, will keep these weblog entries brief. I was pretty burned […]

11/4/02 procrastination has always worked well

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Again, I have failed to get to bed at any reasonable hour tonight. Unfortunately, I didn’t even quite keep up with the pace—I’m only at 4105 (out of 5000, where I should be after 3 days). I’ll catch up this week or over the weekend. Or over Thanksgiving weekend, perhaps. Procrastination has always worked well […]

11/3/02 sacrificed a couple hours of sleep

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Well, I sacrificed a couple hours of sleep to get back on pace after two days of writing, if only temporarily. I have no plans to write much else today, Sunday, however. Writing some dialogue on the BART Saturday worked pretty well, in retrospect. I’ll continue to use those moments productively. (Hell, even that’s justification […]
