I'm Calling to Celebrate a Momentous Occasion. We're Now Officially Moved In

Yesterday was 11/11/11 and it was quite a magical day. First, I hit the 25,000 words mark in my novel, meaning I am halfway through NaNoWriMo, so I can post on my blog, right?

It also marked a momentous occasion:  I finally unpacked the last box. Now, it's official. Ha, ha, ha.

The last box had been sitting in a corner, all by itself, ever since I finished unpacking all the other boxes. What was in the last box? Books, of course. I couldn't unpack them because I had no where to put them. That is, until yesterday, which is reason number three yesterday was such a magical day:

I got bookshelves! I got two matching ones off of Craigslist. They are seven feet tall and three feet wide and can hold a lot of books. They can hold so many books, after putting them up and stuffing them with all the books we own, there are still a few empty shelves. Hooray!

From what I could tell from the women I bought them from, she inherited the bookshelves when she bought the property that used to be a library in a neighboring town. So I guess my bookshelves used to be actual library shelves. That's pretty cool, right?


  1. Cool! I love that your shelves used to be library shelves!

  2. wow! 25,000 words! do you have any tips on how to write so much? I gotta write 3,000 for my argumentative essay by next week :)

  3. When I sit down to write, I tell myself i'm not allowed to get back up until I've reached my word count. I close all non-writing related tabs and minimize all distractions.
    But really, I'm getting my word count because I love my novel. I've been so excited fro November because I've been dying to write it. So that helps.

  4. Hooray! That's so wonderful!
