Nowhere today on the novel, 2,000 meaningless words yesterday and every day. I reread some of it today and there are some things not so bad. Instead of diving into the abyss that it is, I did more writing exercises today. I will attack the novel after coming back from the planning commission meeting tonight, if I have energy, and I need to have energy. If nothing else, I am writing. There is nothing else and actually that is enough.

A woman a few seats away from me in this coffee place is trying to talk two other women into selling the Body Shop merchandise. I could tell that the other women were hesitant, being steam-rolled, even though this woman kept saying "no pressure". That's when you know there is pressue.

I love the Body Shop! I have nothing against those who sell it. I only know how it is to sell on your own, how hard it is even when you love the products. Hard for me, anyway.

I find it hard to believe that your 2,000 words were "meaningless." If nothing else, perhaps some of them can be useful and can launch something else.

I am looking at the novel as "writing practice" rather than has a real novel that has real possibilities. I think that's best.

Interesting that The Body Shop is also a kind of Avon there, it is just the chain of shops (as well as the manufacturing) here.

No words are wasted, sometimes they're just in the wrong sentences.

Right! I don't mean to put down (as in criticise) any of those words. They've been faithful to me.

The body shop is also a chain here, in fact that's its main thing. I think they have this Avon-type thing for areas where there are no stores nearby. Like where I live.

i'm in awe of your dedication to writing - you are far more disciplined than i am...

Oh, but no! That's the problem. I find every kind of distraction and it's like pulling teeth. IF I do succeed and write 50,000 words by the end of this month, it will be one hell of an accomplishment for a dilettante like me, even if those words do not constitute an actual novel.
