Over 9,000

I don’t know how many of you know or remember the meme where Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z went, “His power level! It’s over 9,000!” (Or something like that. Who remembers?)

Upon looking at my blog’s dashboard, I saw that my comment level is now over 9,000, so I thought of the meme and giggled to myself.

Most importantly, I wanted to say that I’m thankful for all of you who read this blog and take the time to write comments. Hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving!

[Thankful] Thursday Three #38

There are three main things I have to be thankful for:

  1. Health. I’ve often heard it said that if you ain’t got your health, you ain’t got nothing. Over the past year, I’ve learned that this is true. You can’t focus, can’t enjoy simple things, and find it very difficult to function and do the basic necessary chores.
  2. People. All my life, I have been afraid of people, and to a degree, I still am. People bring irritation, but they also bring joy and happiness, and I never realized that more than I did this year, so I am deeply thankful for the people in my life.
  3. Memory. Someone said recently that they were thankful for their mind, that it worked properly. In a similar way, I am glad for my memory, that I can look back on all the things I have enjoyed over the years.

And I am thankful for you, the reader, because you listen to my ramblings. 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving NaNo Update

One of the many things I’m thankful for this year is that I haven’t fallen behind in NaNo. At the beginning of the month I had doubts about whether my wimpy (and somewhat lazy) idea would be strong enough to warrant a word count of 50,000.

As of this morning, my graph looks like this, which means I am right on track and set to reach 50k on Sunday. (It’s also in fall colors!)

Because I’m writing a bunch of stuff related to revision and trying to make sense of my ideas and tie up loose ends, this NaNo document has probably been the most useful of all the others I’ve written over the years. I am getting some good ideas, and these ideas are leading to questions about the story, which leads to me having some nice brainstorming sessions about the characters and the plot of the whole series. All in all, I’m pleased with it.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
