Today I've just been sneezing at everything. 'Object X' is not to be sneezed at? Well, I beg to differ. I've used up almost everything in the house that can be used for nose-blowing. I might as well have eaten cardboard for dinner, too, because my head is so stuffed up that I couldn't taste a thing.
Reasons for all this?
- Mice in the feed shed
- Mum's pet rabbit
I've probably mentioned before that I'm a goat dairy farmer. Er... yes, at the top of the blog. Well, add to that the fact that I'm an Aussie girl and we end up with August to November being the season when all the does give birth. Seventy does kidding between the end of JulNoWriMo and the end of NaNoWriMo, and every single one of them has to be supervised to make sure it all goes well. We'll end up keeping quite a few kids to expand the herd, so I'll have seventy does to milk, thirty or so kids to feed and all the associated records to maintain. During all that, writing doesn't get to happen very often.
I'm sure there was a point to that other than "Siana is freaking out about work!!!" Oh, I know - the reason why I want to write 75k in June. It's basically because I want to finish Doom (the June novel) as well as finish the first-person rewrite of Darkness (book one of the series) before Daily Goats begins. 75k is the length of a complete first draft in this series and the same is true of the first-person rewrite (currently standing at 50k), so I need to write at least 100k by the end of July to achieve my goals.
Anyway, rambling goat-oriented post might as well come to an end. See you tomorrow :).
