Oh hey, remember that story I was writing?

Have some more of it! I love how I was like, "IT WILL BE DONE BY THE END OF THE WEEK" and then I completely failed to write any more of it until NaNoWriMo started. Way to fail, me. As punishment, I'm not letting myself start my NaNo novel until I'm done with this one. It's become like pulling teeth. DON'T KNOW WHY.

Anyway, here's what I've written today (this includes last night's midnight writing and today's exhausted, coming off of four hours of sleep and eight hours of work writing).

39127 / 43827 words. 89% done!

This would be the first Halloween since I was born that I have not had a costume. Do not think less of me. Usually I spend months thinking up and putting together a costume. It's the thing that gets me through school starting again and having to deal with classes and human interaction and all that stuff. But this year, I just didn't feel any motivation.

I don't know if you've noticed this, but the older you get, your candy haul dwindles. The more you look like an adult and less like an adorable little kid, the less likely people are willing to offer you their candy bowls. I even had a few people last year ask me if I was too old to be trick-or-treating. Is there a cut off age? How old is "too old"? Such a thing never occurred to me.
