If I had the ability to change my eye or hair color, I would deliberately change... neither. I'm pretty happy with the blue and silver I've had going on for years. 😊
Type !bang in DDG search for clues. There are ‘000s but you’ll end up with a handful that you personally use all the time (like !w for a Wikipedia search is one of mine).
I agree with Shufei on this. I’ve used DDG exclusively for the last... oh I dunno... maybe 7 years. I guess I’m a heavyweight researcher with many hundreds, sometimes thousands of searches a day. I also use the bang syntax a lot. Would never go back.
3,000 words in the last 3½ hours! 😲😵
My total is now 33,480.
Finishing the day with 30,426 words! #NaNoWriMo 😵 💤
NaNoWriMo yet again (rolling eyes allowed)
I think Part II of my novel is coming together. (At last!)
There's enough intrigue. I've broken the back of the detail. I know (roughly) where the plot is going. And I'll be really sad and sorry to say goodbye to one of the characters - which I think is always a good sign!
Now for some drama before I plant the necessary hooks and zoom forward 3000 years for Part III.
27,480 words total so far.
This is happening!
More NaNoWriMo rubbish if you can stand it
Mega writing day today. I'm exhausted! But worth it: +3,446 words written. A lot of hard work but a lot of progress. 25,004 words now is my total - so I'm past the halfway mark. #NaNoWriMo
Another NaNoWriMo update
I'm tired after a busy day. But I still managed to scramble up to 21,558 words - nearly halfway!
I had to divide the novel into three parts:
Part I, set in modern times, is complete, and uses the same characters from the first two books in the series.
Part II is now on its way. I'm introducing a complete new cast of characters, MCs and protagonist. We're at the end of the 20th Dynasty in Ancient Egypt.
Part III will integrate it all in modern times.
After 7 days writing, I’ve reached 13,568 words. Which sounds reasonable, but... I’ve discovered I now need to finish by November 25th, so I’m upping my daily minimum goal to +2,024 words. #NaNoWriMo
Five days writing,
+1957 words today,
10133 in total.
Too tired for ice cream reward - damn!
Four days in

I need some pumpkin bread 😋
Three days in, and I'm up to 6,048 words. Maybe I can actually do this (again) after all. 😅 #nanowrimo
I'm happy to have ended my first day of this year's #nanowrimo with 2,600 words written.
Those sound worthy of a poem... 🤔
And they put me in mind of a "we do/sell everything" shop I visited on Vashon Island. All those and in ice cream flavors too. 🤤
But that was 8 years ago. And bodies and brains and their coping abilities move ever on. But like the wino skeleton in... wait... did someone just say that?
