NaNoWriMo – Day 11

Today has been hard, folks, as Maya decided to wake up at 12.30 and not to sleep until 4.30! I’d have to add a.m. to both the times to be clearer!

Needless to say I feel like a zombie and I didn’t manage to do much!

So here is the statistics, don’t hate me if I’m so fast in writing the post tonight but I need to chill a bit!

Number of notes written on my mobile: 4

 

Number of piece of paper scribbled while not busy in work: around 30

 

Meals skipped with the colleagues in order to write: 2

 

Cups of tea or coffee drunk: 7

 

Dried apricots eaten: 13

 

Corn on the cobs eaten: 0

 

Times I hysterically despaired to make it: 6

 

Word count for today: 2.070 words.

 

Favourite sentence or excerpt of the day:

Important thing to remember this isn’t only a draft, but a NaNo draft so ignore errors and what doesn’t make sense please!

We notice that at the very end on the left there is a big table purple in colour and modelled in a funny shape you’ll never find in nature. We notice that Ky is over there with other two people who, considered the resemblance with him and their height must be other guardians.

They’re all concentrated in doing something and don’t even realize we’re getting closer. I can see some smoke coming out of the table and when we get closer we see there some bowls, and bottles and some buckets full of steaming liquid.

One of the guardians is eating what I get from the perfume is pork curry and the other, the one who wears glasses, is playing with a small ball.

“What are you doing?” I say leaning towards them

“Oh my, Fran, you scared me!” Ky says startling and spilling some liquid of a nice blueberry colour “Oh no, look at that!” he says frowning.

I feel sorry but mostly I’m curious to see what they’re up to.

While Ky is turned to me the one who’s eating puts some powder in the bottle Ky’s is keeping in his hand and it is then that the liquid begin to smoke a lot more and then explodes.

The one guardian wearing glasses starts to roll on his tummy and laughs so hard that in a while the attention of the whole room is on us.

I cannot help laughing myself, although I’m not following all the details of the conversation.

“Why did you do that….again?” Ky yells at the second person.

“Because I told you, curry improves the flavour!”

“Not of blueberry mead thought!” Ky says

“Curry could improve even your socks’ flavour Ky, I’m sorry!” he says shovelling in his mouth a huge spoonful.

“And most of all…” the third person says “You owe me two wings and one pop if we include the last time. I told you it was going to explode again!”

“Just because this idiot put some of his curry inside!” Ky yells. His face is red but it’s still funny to watch.

NaNoWrimo – Day 10

I’ve disappeared again I know, but I have a justification and some news!

I’ve been in Italy again at a comic exposition. As you might know I love comics and my partner does too, so when we can we go there.

First day we decided to bring Maya with us too and it was possibly the funniest of the four days.

I have some pictures for you.

The only problem is, as usual when I go to this exposition, I was left behind for my NaNoWriMo, so now I have to catch up. I’m doing my best all considered, so here is the statistic.

The working title is The Horror Heritage.

Favourite sentence or excerpt of the day: well not of today but so far for the moment, until this post becomes regular.

Second thing to remember this isn’t only a draft, but a NaNo draft so ignore errors and what doesn’t make sense please!

I don’t know how long I have slept last night but I know I can hear an alarm now. It’s not an alarm; it’s more like a scratching noise. Or maybe not even that one.

I feel like Emma right now, I try to decide whether to open my eyes and give a lesson to whomever is doing such wreckage or stay with my eyes closed and wait to calm down.

It’s like this in the morning; I have to wake up in a soft way.

“Fran, Fran!” I hear Aisolar voice calling me, she sounds scared.

“Oh no!” this should be Moko’s voice instead “Not again! Cari will you stop please?!” she shouts.

I open my eyes, and I see that the room is still dark but using the light coming from Aisolar’s air I can make out the lines of someone floating in the room.

“Wake up, ladies, wake up, little flowers!!!” she screams and then she starts flying hysterically form one side of the room to the other.

“Ok, ok! We’re up, we’re up! Stop it!” I shout.

The figure stops and she start floating in the middle of the room. I can see she’s transparent, so I think she’s a ghost but her behaviour recalls something I read in a book once.

“So you’re a poltergeist!” I say

“Ding, ding, ding! Right answer! Continue like this and you’ll start working before you can say poltergeist!” she says and then starts laughing hysterically.
