Musings on an English Degree

Month: November 2011

November – Day 30

I’ve survived. Let’s wrap this all up, shall we? I started the month with a few goals in mind. I wanted to take 30 Day Challenge to be a Better Man. I wanted to deactivate my Facebook account, at least for the month of November. I wanted to grow a mustache to support prostate cancer awareness. […]

November – Day 29

I’m running out of things to write about. Push ups and sit ups are on schedule. Writing is done for the month and the mustache is still growing. Today’s task in my 30 Day Challenge is to conquer a fear. All day I thought about the fears I have. I could only think of the psychologically incurable […]

November – Day 28

Can you believe it? I’ve been at this for four weeks now. We’re almost home. You may have missed yesterday’s fanfare, so I’ll go about tooting my horn again. I won NaNoWriMo last night. I came in at 50,045 words and I called it quits for the month. My brain is dead. I have insane […]

November – Day 27

Where to begin today? How about with the weekly mustache update? Here it is: It’s actually starting to look less creepy. I’ve decided once the month is over, I’m going to start growing a beard to complement it. I’ll shave one last time on Wednesday, post the picture and then it will be facial hair […]

OH MY GOD. NPH just showed up …

OH MY GOD. NPH just showed up in an episode of Roseanne as Doogie Howser.

November – Day 26

I’m not going to suggest I’m awesome. I’m going to say it. I am awesome. Today, with the aid of a full night sleep and two cups of coffee, I wrote 7,722 words towards the novel. I am completely caught up from the past five days where I only wrote about 400 words. I’m also […]

Four days left in #NaNoWriMo a…

Four days left in #NaNoWriMo and just over 8,100 words left to write. I can see the end.
