NaNo No-No

Captain's Log, Supplemental

I am giving up on NaNoWriMo. Ever since I came back from visiting my parents at the end of last month, and with the traveling and events I had planned for this month, I KEEP COMING HOME TO A MESSY HOUSE! IT’S DRIVING ME NUTS! MY BRAIN FEELS AS CLUTTERED AS MY OFFICE!

I got a measly 4000 words done (although to my credit, I did manage to get the entire book plotted out scene-by-scene on my scene spreadsheet).

I came to the conclusion this weekend that I’m spending too much energy trying to write in the midst of clutter, and it’s stressing me out and blocking any creativity I might have.

So, I’m taking this week off from writing to clean my house! Captain Caffeine has graciously offered to help, so I think he’s feeling the clutter, too.

And no, I will not terrorize you with pictures. People would drop dead in front of their computers all over the world.


  1. oh when you finish want to clean my house.
    (although its not to bad at the moment im going away for a week tomorrow)
    so bookstores watch out country chick on the way.

  2. I never got into the NaNoWriMo. It's the sort of thing that is good except when it's not good. Getting writing is a big thing for writers, but if you are already writing you don't need an artificial schedule.

  3. cami,
    don't be so sure about pictures of your cluttered house making people drop dead - first it would have to compete with mine!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
