Remember that episode of Friends where Ross accidentally cheats (or not, depending on what camp you’re in) on Rachel, then spends the rest of the season explaining that “We were on a break!”?
That’s how I felt when I opened Microsoft Word this morning, and the pitiful little word count glared accusingly at me.
“We were on a break!” I wanted to yell. “Remember? I explained that! I had a lot to do yesterday! It was a busy day! It’s been a busy week! Can’t you just give me a break? I promise I’ll write scads and scads this weekend! I promise! I promise!”
It didn’t help that I overslept and already felt guilty for having only a few minutes to devote to writing.
It didn’t help that the cruel overlords at the NaNoWriMo headquarters sent out an email from “My Novel” begging me to get back to work.
We were on a break, I tell you!
