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.
