Ham and Cheese Omelette, Please. Hold the Ham

NaNoWriMo novel working title:

Ham and Cheese Omelette, Please. Hold the Ham



Thanks to Denny's for giving me the working title. Without meaning to help. And for a good 1500 words toward the NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000 words. It's written in my head, so I'll at least have a few words. Other things going into the novel:

  • Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin playing in the operating room.

  • The last words from my boss the day before my surgery: "Enjoy your new eye." The look on his face was priceless as soon as the words left his mouth.

I have no expectations for the November fun. I just haven't been writing. Even here. 

At least I have a few other solid words ready.

The first line always is:
"It was a dark and stormy night."
And:
"The end."
Who says I don't have high standards.

Surely you jest...




Thanks for all your well wishes.

Cataract surgery is an absolute miracle. I don't use the term lightly.

Are you Nanowrimoing?
