Random Thoughts

I left work at 4:45pm and didn't get home until just before 6pm. I only made one stop so I'm not sure why it seemed to take forever. I went to the library next to the park and was surprised by how many people had dogs there. On my way out I passed a gentleman in his 40s or 50s who had an exuberant corgi jumping around him just waiting for some treat to fall out of his jeans pocket. It was a cute sight.

I found a funny quiz for NaNo that predicts I'll win! Credit goes to arieswriting for bringing it to my attention.

Hooray for you! You're going to win Nanowrimo!
Persistence and hardwork reap great rewards.

It's Nanowrimo Time! Will you reach 50K? What kind of novel will you write?
