This is the first day of NaNoWriMo, and I’m not going to leave the house. I’m even giving up my t’ai chi class. Yep, have to make sacrifices. Tomorrow I have a committee meeting that will last for three hours in addition to the 45 minutes of driving time each way, and tomorrow afternoon I have my English tutoring with Chi. So I know not much will get written on Wednesday. That being said, I’m going to write my brains out this first day. It will be very hard because, now that I finally have my violin back, all I want to do is play it. So I will reward myself with fifteen minutes of violin time for every hour I put in of writing. If I’m on a roll when my husband comes home, I may have to send him out to pick up something from Five Guys. Yep, as I said, I have to make sacrifices.
I didn’t want to leave you with nothing while I’m hard at work writing the Great American Novel (or in the case of NaNoWriMo, the Great American Schlock), so I’m going to give you this great video to watch. My brother e-mailed me the link, and I’ve watched it four times already. Ah, to have real showmen again instead of just actors! Enjoy.
I also added two more of my favorites:
I love this one of the very dignified George Murphy, who later became a United States Senator from California, dancing with Shirley Temple.
