What’s that? You’re too lazy to click? Fine.
This event involves blogging throughout the day of Friday the 4th of November 2011 while writing for your NaNoWriMo novel. You give yourself a goal for the day, mine is 2777 (so I can hit 4000 words), and you try to reach it. So far ten people have joined, including me. One of them is my writer friend Jessica, who’s in Australia and started doing this madness 8 hours ago: you can read her live blog post here.

Friday 4th November 2011
12.10 am: I’ve written 11 words, but as I haven’t even finished my homework, that’s all for now.
Word count: 11/2777
NaNoWriMo total: 1234
6.45 am: Wake up. Snooze.
7 am: Get on computer with intention of writing and blogging.
7.04 am: Realize that’s not happening–I have to leave at 7.30 and I still have to get dressed and eat breakfast. *goes back to reading blogs of other writers doing this live blogging thing*
7.06 am: Decide that the moment I get home, I’ll leave comments on everyone’s blogs and answer to the comments on my post. And get some writing done.
7.17 am: While finishing breakfast, radio talks about weather. The area I live in is on orange alert because of all of the rain. Decide I can get some writing done in philosophy class (all French high school seniors have this class).
7.22 am: Woah, the rain and wind is really picking up… And I should get off the computer now.
8.20 am: In philosophy class. Got maybe a hundred words written in my special NaNoWriMo notebook.
10.18 am: In school library on computer. Going to type up what I wrote, write more then email the whole thing to myself.
Word count: 135/2777
NaNoWriMo total: 1358
11.08 am: Decide to stop writing. Library will be closing at half past anyway and the notes I need to continue writing are at home. (That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.)
Word count: 440/2777
NaNoWriMo total: 1663
3.29 pm: Finally home and on laptop. Need to get ready for awesome writing session. And convince siblings to leave me alone–and resist temptation to watch Supernatural/Glee episode(s) with them.
3.32 pm: *is wearing comfy clothes* Now I need food.
3.45 pm: Got a sandwich. I told my sister I’d watch Supernatural when I reach 1000 words. Here I go.
4.04 pm: Contemplate downloading the new Florence and the Machine album. Scold self and get back to writing.
5.26 pm: Before you give me that look, you know the look, I did not in fact waste time on that spreadsheet. It will come in handy during big fight of novel. Now, Supernatural. (I KNOW! Don’t give me that look…)
Word count: 592/2777
9.44 pm: Cake in the oven and Supernatural will be watched while consuming said cake. Until then, commenting on blogs and writing. Also, I caved and bought the album. Florence is a genius!
10.07 pm: Still commenting on blogs… *sigh* I think being dead-tired isn’t helping. A zombie would be more efficient at writing a novel right now.

So… You’re probably wondering what the hell happened? This happened between Friday 10 pm and now:
- I was tired
- I watched Supernatural
- I ate food
- I watched The Big Bang Theory
- I slept
- Or at least I tried. The mice inside the walls kept scratching and thus woke me up after only 3 and a half hours of sleep
- I watched more Supernatural
- I rewatched The Princess Diaries
- I had more food
- I slept
- But the mice inside walls once again disrupted my sleep
And now I’ve eaten breakfast/lunch/whatever you want to call it and I have homework to do, the X Factor to catch up (bad TV reception last night) and the last two episodes of season 6 of Supernatural to watch. And Misfits is on tonight at 11 pm.
I CAN do this.
