I didn’t get to the library as quickly as I had hoped I would. I couldn’t concentrate at home (big surprise there), so I did some chores (thinking this would appease the husband) and then headed out to the library at 10:00. I stopped by the bank to pick up a roll of quarters (so I can feed the MSU meter monsters this month) and now I’m at the library, sitting at one of the tall, funky tables and I just typed out my prologue, which is only 546 words, I’m sad to say.
However, I’m finding it hard to concentrate because I have a young couple behind me working on some sort of project and being loud in their discussion, and a young girl, on her cell phone, retelling a story to someone and crying. Apparently, from what I can gather, she was involved in some sort of physical drama last night. Though I don’t know, I hear a lot of “then she said,” and “then he said” stuff going on, so it could simply be a broken heart. Not that that isn’t a big deal but …
I feel sorry for her, I really do, but I can’t help but be irritated as well.
This is a library! Get a study room for your project and take your conversation outside, missy.
*sigh* I do feel sorry for her, though. She really does sound upset.
Actually, I’d like to move closer to her and see what the problem is. Maybe there’s a story in it somewhere.
I’m disgusting, aren’t I.
Update: It’s now 1:53 p.m. and I’m already pooped. I got up too early this morning, I think. I feel a nap coming on. 🙂
I had to change venues – the library just got WAY too crowded and WAY too noisy and all of the study rooms were being used (I can see why!). So, I ended up driving to the university library where there wasn’t a soul to be found and the place was so quiet, I was able to pound out 1,500 more words. So, my word count for today? Is below.
Lesson learned here: NEVER use the public library on the weekends unless I’ve reserved a study room. AND, it’s almost always worth the drive to the university library because I can’t access Internet there, it’s super quiet and I get a ton of work done. Oh, and the parking is free on the weekends. No brainer in my book!
If you’re a NaNo’er, what’s your current word count? If you’re not doing NaNo, how is your day shaping up?
