NaNo Day Four: Is NaNo frying my brain?

Okay, what is going on? Is NaNo frying my brain? I took a little video of the upstairs den/office so you could see "where the magic happens" (snort), but can I find the camera now? I remember the last time I saw it. Did the elves take it?

When I went to the store, I nearly forgot the very first item on the list and the reason I went in the first place. Yeesh, distracted much?

In any event, the writing's going pretty well.

Day Four results:

a.m. - 1357
p.m. - 892 for a day's total of 2249 and a cumulative total of 9447. Obviously, I'm writing more in the morning.

Since I've misplaced the camera, here's a mini-movie of the Pantheon in Rome, a temple built by Agrippa and saved from destruction because it was turned into a church.

Yes, that's an opening in the dome. What happens when it rains? There are drainage holes in the floor.

Actually, my cameras are some of the few things I CAN find. Things in our house seem to grow legs and walk off with great frequency.

As for forgetting the first thing on your list, I have been known to have to go back into the store to get it after getting about twenty other things I didn't really need.

I believe the technical term for the opening in the roof of the Pantheon is the Occulus. Those Romans knew a thing or two about architecture, didn't thay?

TO change the subject entirely, my Tippy kitten goes in to be neutered tomorrow. Not bad for a cat I didn't think would survive the night, he was so starved when I found him back in May.

Happy writing.

Your NaNo count sounds impressive, Margaret!

Hugs to Tippy Kitty! But the responsible thing to do.

Thanks, Kaye. I don't know if I'll be able to keep it up, but I'll try!
