Day 6: Still no rescue vessels in sight. Another life ring washed up on shore; I’ve almost got the Olympic logo filled out. Found another coconut tree. Still hunting for the chocolate tree. The wine should last, if I only drink a bottle a day. Thank goodness for liquor store clearance sales! Only 24 days to go.
Note to self: Invest in satellite phone for Internet connection. I’m good, as long as my computer doesn’t crash, but I can’t update my word count.
Snagged a brief Internet connection when the trans-Pacific flight passed over. Thank you on-board wireless! Great pep talk by Veronica Roth: NaNoWriMo Pep Talk: V Roth
My Muse is still wandering around the island looking for a clue. I told him the only thing between us and 50,000 words is 26 days. And I told him if he has to wander, he better damn well find that chocolate tree. He doubts the Winner ship will arrive on time. I told him that ship will show up early. We have a bet: if the Winner ship shows up before November 30, he can take all of December off. If not… well, I didn’t go there because I know the ship will get here. Hell, this is my tenth go at this NaNoWriMo business. I think I know what I’m doing.
My Muse is calling; he claims he actually found chocolate. Better not be pellet-shaped and smell like rancid dirt like last time.
