Being without internet (or power, for that matter) makes you think differently. I'd been waffling about whether to do nanowrimo this year, and had nearly convinced myself out of it. But writing is one of those things you don't need a computer to do, and I have nearly a lifetime supply of paper and pens--as well as a story I've been noodling for a few weeks.
Now it turns out that my husband's workshop got power yesterday (and internet), so I can work there during the daylight hours. And the laptop, when charged, will last in the evening hours for as long as I can stay awake and feeding the fire. So for the first time in my personal nanowrimo history, I've actually wrote and managed the target word count on the first day of the month! Of course, I can't post it until a day later, but hey, last year it was a week into the month before I was able to do any writing.
Life is good.
