Six Sentences Sunday 2

So... It's Sunday again.

And I'm bad at creative titles for my Triple S's.

So I'm just going to number them.

Because NaNoWriMo ended two days ago, I don't have much new after then, but that will change very soon, yes it will. So here's the last six sentences I wrote for NaNoWriMo. Enjoy.

She managed a slight smile as Aoduain and Hrothsam came closer. 
"Looks like we made it just in time," Aoduain said.
 "I had it under control," she said. "As if I'd ever need help from a human." 
Aoduain rolled his eyes. "Yeah? Well these two humans just saved your life."

Tee hee.

I love the way Aoduain and Ilyrana interact.

(If I haven't mentioned, Aoduain isn't a human, he's a half-elf. Hrothsam, however, is a human.)

Ta-ta for now, my lovelies!

Post NaNo Life

Whether you made it across the finish line with 50,000 words (like I finally did this year!) or not, you're going to need to get back to normal Non-NaNo life.

For some, the transition is quite simple.

For others, such as myself and Murphy (I mean, just look at her recent tweets), it can be quite difficult.

There are piles of dishes to be cleaned, animals to be fed on a regular basis again, food that we actually have to COOK. Some of us even have to get back to a normal sleeping schedule. (Not me, my schedule is whack because I work overnights).

So how does one go about re-entering this Non-NaNo "normal" world?

I would advise you take it slowly. One step at a time.

One thing at a time.

Dishes need doing? Do them, then take a break. Watch some television. Maybe write a little bit (if you're still in that mind set like I am).

But then do some laundry. Then take a break.

Do it like this for a few days, or a week, and slowly you will become accustomed to doing chores on a daily basis again.

But also, for those of you who are first time NaNo'ers, or even first time writers, you can write any time during the year. You don't have to wait for November and NaNoWriMo to come around.

I think some veterans may even need to read those words.

Ta Ta for now, lovelies! I'll see you on a daily basis again, now that NaNo is over.
