my nano stats

At this rate you will finish on March 23rd

Kinda says it all, doesn't it?

I got busy. 

I got sick. 

Mr. Cynic took over the computer and I've rarely had a chance since.  I believe he was on for 10 -possibly more- solid hours yesterday.

At 10:30 last night:

Mom: Get off the computer!  You've been on all day!
Mr. Cynic:  But I need a thousand more words to make it to today's goal!

I've created a monster. 

Today I gave him the laptop and told him not to go online in his room.

Maybe I can thwart his progress a little by taking him out for a driving lesson. 

Oh wait, that'll thwart mine, too.

Does this make me a bad mother?

My ears are burning.


  1. Hello! I wanted to stop by and say "thank you" for visiting my blog. I giggled after reading your latest post. I have my own "Mr. Cynic", and he often needs to be reminded to get off the computer too! :)

  2. thanks for stopping by mine, too, heather! aren't teens a joy? ;)

  3. oh, mr. cynic is doing nano too? how cool is that!? i wouldn't worry about the doomsday "at this rate" projector - you'll have some days where you will churn out words as if you were the mother of the dictionary, so save up your strength for some mid-week bursts and you'll get right back on track!

  4. thanks for your words of encouragement, aimee!
