So Camp NaNoWriMo is open (as if I’d let you forget that!)
Not only am I experiencing the usual angst of accepting the 50,000 word challenge but I’m also realizing I have a few well developed writing quirks.
Headset on and MP3 loaded I begin. Soon I realize I forgot to turn the music on. Fix that. Now my head starts bopping as I write. Suddenly I’m trying to think of a word and my Sicilian comes out. Which means my hands leave the keyboard and start aimlessly waving in front of my face while I desperately try to get my brain to pull the word I want out of long term storage. Ah, found it. Then I notice the kids watching me and being disgusted with their weird Mom (teenagers you know). So I just close my eyes and keep on typing. Which really does help me cocoon away from reality but oh let me tell you how the eye rolling begins then!
I can’t be the only one with weird little habits. So please, tell me some of yours.
