Back from its November hiatus, I bring you once more my comic picks for this week.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
As of Wednesday, November 28, the Powerball jackpot is an estimated 500 million dollars. Technically, I am not allowed to play because of work, but it is still fun to think of what I would do if I had actually won that jackpot.
I think I might have an ending. At least, one that isn’t so depressing.
More to come when I know it.
For many who are participating in the National Novel Writing Month, this is the final days of their attempt to write 50,000 words in 30 days. For some, they have reached, or surpassed, the word limit, got their winner’s badges, and are taking a break before they dive into edits and rewrites. Some of these people may even take their NaNoWriMo works and seek publication.
Then there is me. I have reached the word limit. I surpassed it, actually. But my NaNoWriMo will never see the light of day.
I still don’t have an ending I’m happy with. Somehow, I feel that after everything I put my characters through, they deserve a better ending than the arranged marriage one I ended up with.
Regardless of that, this is the day that NaNoWriMo activates their validator.
Taking a break from NaNoWriMo inspired songs, I thought I would pull a song that played off a different theme.
This past Thanksgiving we had the 76th running of the Manchester Road Race. This Thanksgiving tradition draws in runners from across the world for a race that is equal parts serious and fun. In addition to elite runners we have fun runners, some even dressed in costumes of all kinds.
Playing off this theme, we delve back into the archives for this hit from Bryan Adams.
Waiting is horrible, even if it is only two days until I can officially verify my work. It’s like waiting for Christmas for a child.
I am not all that keen on my ending. Worse yet, I am trying to figure out some way in which my main female character can be with the main male character (the man she loves) even though she is betrothed (and I don’t want to to go the “man on the side” route either). Is there some way in which she can break the betrothal without sending the kingdom into war?
My word count is currently 61,501, but validation usually mucks that up, so we will have to see where I end up.
