Today is my birthday and I've been racing around at work all day, but I got an awesome hour long uninterrupted lunch hour...and churned out 1500 happy fun new words on my novel...and added an awesome twist that I'd played around with but never really got inserted in the book....someone's stalking my main character! AWESOME!

Okay is it sick and twisted that I consider this a fun birthday present to myself?

Can I just say that it was awesome to get a birthday email message from this board as well? Thanks guys!

I know I'm going out to dinner with the 'rents tonight and they're gonna smile and nod and think I've gone off the deep end again when I tell them how great my birthday was that I got a chance to get so much writing in, and in a place I needed it in my book.

Heh. I know that "off the deep end" look. Don't worry, we all get it.

I smile like an idiot when I get even 500 words down. :)

Sure, words count as a birthday present. For the last couple of years, I've finished NaNoWriMo on my birthday.

So Happy Birthday, and good luck on the rest of your novel!

Happy-happy birthday! :Cake:

I'd say that you've more than made your 500 word goal. Enjoy your evening with the 'rents!

At least you can come here where people get how cool a productive writing day is.

Happy birthday, akkadakka (did I pronounce it right?) -- hang around another year and let us make a fuss over you next time.

Congratulations on the writing! I wrote, um, sixteen words yesterday, and they didn't even go together very well. (And yes, it DOES make a difference in poems, wiseguys.)
