NaNo Day 4 (Or is it 5?)

So, here  I am, at 0208, writing a bit...I know, I know, I know...I wasn't going to write today, but here we are anyway...

Turning in a respectable 2045 in two hours tonight (I started after the election was over here in the states).

17,107 for the running total!  That's 34.2%.  Yay!

PS-You know how I love Wil Wheaton?  Well, here's a good part of why-Wil on NaNo:

*hugs you madly*

You're a good night's writing ahead of me. Most likely 'cause I couldn't write last night--just COULD NOT, thanks to bleh grey skies and a glass of wine. But I woke up this morning to the sound of ravenous plotbunnies threatening to pull me out from underneath the covers and chew my legs off. So I'm not quite where I wanted to be before work this morning, but I DAMN straight will be when I go to bed tonight!! LOL

*smiles happily*
It's a beautiful fall day, grey skies and all, and I think I'm in love with my Muse again. Stupid thing.

Well, I'm off work today, and I should be writing, but instead I've wiled away a few hours online, and it's time to do chores now, so off I go, but I should be able to get a bit of words in tonight. We'll see!

It's gorgeous here today, so I'm going outside for a bit.

Oh, and I'm in love with your muse, too. Who wouldn't be, with looks like his? Then again, I bet it's a love-hate relationship based on what the bastard says, huh?

Ah, Saturdays. It's grey and cold here again, but I'm going away for a bit. I understand there's a Penn State game on this afternoon though--so I'm going to chain myself to my computer and not leave until I'm WELL over a large number mark. Haven't decided which one yet....

I love my muse. He's so sexy and sweet. He's got beautiful blue eyes....like someone else I could think of, but won't....*SIGH* It's very much Love/Hate, 'cause he has a tendency to get all smug and uppity on me. Damn man. But then again, who can fault a Muse who whispers to you in that sexy-ish Canadian accent that just oozes spine-tingling appeal? Not me!

*feels a little punch-drunk*
Yeah, this is gonna be a productive day!

Oh, I love the stuff on the Wil link -- and I already love Scalzi!

I respected Wil Wheaton as an actor and a person even though I didn't care greatly for his TNG character either -- especially not at first. He did a lot more, with a lot less, than most would have been able to do.

Have you read Wil's books? There are three so far. I haven't read his latest one, yet (it's on my X-mas list), but I have read the other two. Dancing Barefoot is cute but short-more a collection of short stories. It's enjoyable, but Just A Geek is great. I really enjoyed Wil's humor in that one, and his insider's view of the other side of the con experience was eye-opening. The stars are people, too, folks...honest.

My favorite part was this:
"I never considered that most actors go their entire careers without one film like Stand By Me to their credit."

Ok, so that's actually NOT my favorite quote, because I can't pick just one, but it's the first one that is bookmarked with a little yellow sticky that I turned to in my copy, so it will do. And it is the one I reference most in my daily life when I try to remind myself that I don't have things that badly when something goes awry.

This one is early in the book, which is a journey from disenchanted teenage star to grateful actor to caring father and insecure writer.

Star Trek plays a big role in the book, but I think anyone who knows much about fandom would enjoy it.

After all, Wil says this, too:
"Performing well at a convention is extremely important to me. I care about what the fans think. I don't write them off or take them for granted. I know that they've spent a large part of their disposable income on this show, and I want to make sure they get their money's worth. I remember how I felt when WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER dismissed me on the set of Star Trek V. That feeling of humiliation and disenchantment is easy for me to recall, and I do everything I can to ensure that I don't inflict it upon another person. When I'm on stage, the only real difference between me and the people I'm talking to is that I got paid to wear the spacesuit. I'm a huge science fiction geek. I've been attending conventions since I was in the fifth grade, and I know what it's like when a guest is only there to take the fans' money."

Yep...he's one of us...and I am glad.

And once again, I mourn that I removed my Wil icon from my userpics a while ago...sigh...good old Jonathan will have to do. He gets Wil's vote of coolness, so it's all good.

(He also offered to beat up WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER, along with Michael Dorn, after the insult mentioned above...but for that gem, you'll have to read the book.)
