NaNoWriMo, Day 20

by on November 20, 2015

Darlene the Invincible is, somewhat reluctantly, leading an attack by her newly acquired followers on a castle. My word count is over the 22,000 mark now. Only 38,000 to go, right? Right. 🙂

Meanwhile, today I had lunch at Wendy’s, and rejoiced to see that they brought back the round Sweet and Sour sauce containers; I very much preferred them to the square ones they have had of late. I often eat lunch while reading a book, if I can. I recently read an NPR article on the stigma attached to eating alone, and saw a Frasier episode that dealt with the same problem. I’ve never quite understood that. I have never felt that stigma, because whenever I have had occasion to eat lunch on my own, I usually have a book. There: problem solved.

So, today I was happily reading my book (Eamon Duffy’s Saints and Sinners: A History of the Popes, 4th edition, in case you were wondering), when I became aware of a group of individuals next to me. One individual was clearly a leader in that social group, and was also the loudest. This person said a number of potentially tweetable things. I finally got on Twitter this year. I could very easily have tweeted out what this person said. It might have gone viral. Ridiculously viral, even. I could’ve been a star!

But then, I didn’t.

I left the group to their own affairs, finished the chapter on the Reformation (I had not known about the Sack of Rome in 1527 before. Yipes), and left the Wendy’s to proceed about my day.

I didn’t go viral. Neither did they.  The world kept on spinning somehow.

    Hi, Rowmie-of-the-moment. I’m cheering you on for NaNoWriMo! And lunch is always better with a book. 🙂
