My stuff finally arrived yesterday, which meant a lot of unpacking and organizing needs to happen now. Unfortunately, my couch didn’t fit through the door to the living room, so we’re not quite sure what to do with it (for now it’s in the second bedroom, since we could bring it in through the rear door). We may have to keep the couch left by the previous owners (which I’m not very fond of).

What we might do is keep the old couch from the previous owners for a couple of years or so, while saving for a new couch. That maybe can be delivered in parts or something! We’ll have to see.

I’ve been busy trying to get things organised and unpacked, but there is still a lot left to do. We also need to get some bits and bobs for the place still. Some things we can get sooner, while others we will have to get later – to split the expenses a bit more evenly.

As for NaNo, I’m writing every day – but I’m a bit behind. Especially since I wrote just under 2000 words the first day – and just couldn’t feel the story. So as of day two I’m trying another story, but that means that 2000 words are gone from my word count (since I’m guessing I can’t use them since they’re from another story, even if written during NaNo). Even the new story feels odd and stilted though at this point, but maybe it’s because I’m so rusty. I will just have to keep typing and hope that I eventually feel inspired. At least this second one is coming along a bit more than the first, which I just didn’t really know what to do with.

Stuff has arrived!

  1. For couches, you can always try local used sites – I put up my nice, comfy couch when I moved for free (though roommate kept it). You can check the sites periodically and snatch up a cheap/free one when it comes up, since you aren’t in a rush to find a new one.

    I don’t know what the rules of NaNoWriMo are – you’re not allowed to write more than one story for it, I guess? It will probably get smoother as you write on, though!

    • I think the problem is that unless we find a couch that can be taken apart, we will have the same issue with all of them *lol* The hallway is just so narrow that you can’t angle the couch through – and it’s not even a particularly large couch! It’s just a very narrow hallway. So we need a modular couch or something, I guess. But it’s not impossible that someone will sell a used one of those either!

      I’ve been trying to find our the rules in NaNo regarding writing and it all just mentions “writing a novel in a month”. I would have preferred a personal goal of writing 50 000 words in a month, even if it was for several stories. All I’m really looking for is to get back into the habit of writing every day. Which story I’m writing on matters a lot less to me.

      • I think, since you’re doing the writing for you, that you can get away with 50,000 words rather than a 50,000 word novel. Unless you’re signed up somewhere official, I say do what you want as long as you keep track of the word count! But I am a rebel.
