Re: Another Shooting

All true! My grandmother was the one who discovered my brother's language. He wasn't quite two at the time. And to continue the threadjack, a few thanksgivings ago, we went to my mom's church thanksgiving meal here in Maine, and at one end of the table were two groups of very different seeming peopl...

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011-2019

30K to my recent project. That's nice bolus of words to help the year.

Tag me somewhere if you want to go into December longer (or January) and I'll write along with you!

Re: Happy Thanksgiving 2019, y'all!

Happy thanksgiving!!

We're staying home and inside, since it's a little snowy out there. Prolly play some scrabble on the kitchen table and have a low-key supper (or what Verbie considers low-key anyway; the list of prep is long already.)

Re: Hijack this thread

ETA It’s NaNoWriMo. I was all ready. I got 14k under my belt when the smith hit the fan (autocorrect). What say ye, listeme, can I pretend the last couple of weeks didn’t happen and extend my PeNaNoWriMo into December? (Personal) Yes! I'll keep on with you! I lost a few days here and there myself.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011-2019

Day 12! Still on pace. Zero today though -- a lot of proofing for day job and a sleety day here, which makes all the outside chores take longer.

Onward!

Should underbused be underbussed? :think: :confused:
Bused and bussed are both fine in scrabbleland.

Only bussed is underlined in red in fogbowland.

This is a big pickle.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011-2019

So far so good. I'm getting an okay groove going. So far, a lot of it is in long-hand. Not sure when I'll switch over, and I need to get the papers ORGANIZED, but I'm at approximately 3,400 words and not too frazzled.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011-2019

Actually got something of a break today, as we had no electricity -- so I just hunkered down with pen and paper and hammered out a nice 1,700 words. Tomorrow, a lot more moving pieces, so we'll see how it goes. Day one though!

Yay! I am actually doing a lot of prep this week, or at least more than usual. We shall see! :mememe: :-D It's that time of year again! I'm doing the whole thing this year. (It's been a low writing year, what with all the other stuff, and I am going to use November to beef it up.) Anyone with me?

Re: DOJ Investigation: Re Jeffrey Epstein Plea Deal; 2008 SDFL; 2019 SDNY

Like illegal drug use and illegal drug trafficking -- those seem to be illicit use of drug A versus selling drug A to other people. Maybe I have those wrong too :) But it's a construct that makes sense to me, and I wouldn't think twice about extending this construct. I think it's all very unclear. I...
