High Gear kick from the Brazen Hussy

Well, now I've gone and signed up for InAdWriMo again, I will have to crank out the words on one of these papers. Monumental manuscript is probably closest to getting done, so I'll pledge to get a draft of it out by the end of November. It is a bit nuts to take up this challenge now, given all the jobs I have to apply for this month, plus a trip home for Thanksgiving, and making an exam for the class I'm teaching...but the more work I have, the more I seem to get done. I'm a high-gear-or-dead kind of functioning person. So why stop at busy when I can be super-busy. Why not just get some of the writing done that I should be doing anyway?

I'm a bit late to the start but I won't let that stop me either. I've signed up for 5,000 words, which should cover a full draft, even with revisions. Now that I'm getting back into waking up ridiculously early, a little morning writing can be arranged in before I head off to campus.

Ok I've potentially a dumb question but here goes... How do I put the word count monitors in the side bar?

You see, I want to join you in the quest for InAdWriMo to help me battle through drafts of a few bits and pieces (draft of a book chapter, conference paper and more Dissertation...).

I've been really enjoying your blog by the by. Good luck reaching your target!

Hi Ms. Corporealities,

Just clicked over to your blog, and I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts.

The word count monitor is from: http://www.languageisavirus.com/nanowrimo/word-meter.html
You take the code it gives you and paste it into the "Add a Gadget" in the sidebar. (This appears when you click on "customize" at the top left of your home page on blogger).

Good luck and keep us posted on your writing progress!

Go, Alice, go!

I have a dumb question: what does InAdWriMo stand for? It sounds like something I should be doing, since I need to morph into super-productive person, stat.
