NaNoWriMo (and, for that matter, NaBloPoMo) is off and running. Or writing. I'm very pleased to say that I surpassed the daily minimum word count of 1,667 words, which is a strategy I hope to keep up to give myself a nice buffer for Thanksgiving/having of a real life/procrastination. What's my survival strategy? Bribery with cookies, like this Moose Bar from The Break Espresso, a wonderful cafe and bakery downtown. This cookie is an amazing concoction of oats, chocolate chips, and peanut butter. I tell myself that the oats make it healthy.
