Update: I didn’t. I just stared out the window and listened to music. ?

Actually had to commute today, brought my FreeWrite traveler with me. On the morning commute I got 1300 words written. If I can replicate that on the way home I could possibly catch my :nanowrimo: "quota" BEFORE the last week of the month.

If you're using :obsidian: Obsidian.md and you like :vim: you really need the vimrc support plugin. github.com/esm7/obsidian-vimrc Finally I can use jk to get back to normal mode!

Just discovered that Obsidian.md makes you enter the command to quit :vim: Vim without saving before you can enable Vim-mode. 😆

Fortunately I passed.

Don’t pour your heart and soul into anything that has an HR department.

I really like that has an integrated "Update :nanowrimo: word count" button now. Gone are the days of looking at your word count in Scriv, then seeing it go down by a couple hundred when you pasted your text into the NaNoWriMo checker.

Trying for hosting my :nanowrimo: novel for this year. I like a lot of things about WorldAnvil, but the (beta) version of "manuscripts" isn't really one of them. Still, I'm determined to stick to it for the month. Feel free to read along here:

Last night I bought Beast Breakers, because I like the soundtrack. (and had an epic games store coupon). This is probably the first time a soundtrack has led me to buy a game, instead of the other way around.

The game is pretty okay, but I think...the soundtrack might still be better. Big Giant Circles is awesome.

Trying something new for :nanowrimo: this year: using World Anvil to keep a nice database of people, places, things, events, etc.

Not sure if I like it. I'm still writing in and importing here.

Anyway, check it out if you like.

The best thing about 🎃 is that :nanowrimo: starts the next day!

Just discovered DungeonDraft for making :dnd: battlemaps. Instant love.

In my family :dnd: news: we have determined that “Coziness” is a Wisdom-based skill.

's new album BOOK is pretty okay! I'm impressed that they have been able to keep up the art rock vibe for all these decades. 📖 💿 🎵

I've been doing :nanowrimo: every year since 2008. I have never published one of my novels. (I'll get around to it, don't rush me!)

So this year I had the amazing idea: what if I wrote a novel during November without any intention of going to print? What if this year is just focusing on honing a specific set of writing skills, and writing a story just for me?

It's so crazy, it just might work.

Boring administrative 

Meetings per day:
Monday: 2
Tuesday: 1
Wednesday: 1
Thursday: 8
Friday: 1

I don't know how the process failed so bad this week, but today is not a fun day.

Re-watching :tardis: Doctor Who from Season 1 again. I forgot how fun the 9th Doctor is! Season 1 is a lot better than people give it credit for.

My favorite harmless piece of :dnd: D&D "Lore" is the concept of a "dice jail" for dice that are performing poorly. Random is random, dice obviously roll the same before and after being in jail. But it feels good to punish a wayward :d20: d20.

It's a rainy autumn day. I could get used to this! 🍂
