Today was long, if anything, but wonderful at the same time. I got up earlier than normal (6:30) to start my National Novel Writing Month challenge: my goal for the day was 1667 words (or more). I only had around half that by the time I needed to leave for the Warrens/BFC&T.
I ordered tons of espresso gear for the shop (which was a surprising--almost ridiculous!--amount of fun), then spent the next 6 or so hours helping Bethany plant trees and bushes in front of the house. I tried to add a bit to my novel (I had e-mailed myself the second part), but didn't get far.
Then I had to work at the bookstore--er, calendar kiosk-- for the rest of the night. It was fairly dead, but I managed to keep myself busy by reading snippets of the hardboiled detective novel I brought along. I got home not too long ago, and--amazingly--finished up the rest of the NaNoWriMo goal for the day. And then some--I'm at 1765 for the night.
I'm going to watch "Lost" in a moment and eat dinner, then hit the sack and get up early again. The best part is that I feel better than I've felt in (physically and, interestingly enough, emotionally) well over a year.
Again, if you missed it, I have two chapters for my NaNoWriMo novel here.

I think if (read:when) you accomplish this we should have a "reading" party in which we all drink enough wine to make it sound like it took 12 years to write. You know- author's favorite selections- then you can do a siging where you slap your John Hancock on people's laptops in Sharpie. What do you think?
