If gray and yellow is worthy of its own term – grellow - then I think gray and fuschia likewise deserves its own neologism – gruschia? I love how the gray and the fuschia play off each other, and to finish the look, I added bits of brown. My first instinct would have been to wear black accessories with gray, but I think the brown is less expected and more interesting. After I got dressed, I realized that I had unintentionally recreated this look of E’s from last winter. Thanks for the subconscious inspiration, E!
As for NaNoWriMo, it’s definitely getting hard. This week, I’ve made quite a bit of progress in my research and my running, which is wonderful, but it’s left me pretty tired and uninspired at the end of the day with little creative juices for my novel. Last night, in an attempt to squeeze out just one scene, I decided to write the “reunion” part between my two main character. This is the best I could do:
Casey walked in the door and immediately spotted Sam in the back of the coffee shop. He was sitting in their usual seats, two mugs of coffee placed on the table in front of him, looking nervous and sheepish and delighted all at once.
“I wasn’t sure you’d come” he said.
“Of course I’d come.”
“Why of course? But thanks. I appreciate it. You look great.”
“Thanks, you do too.”
“This dialogue sucks.”
“Yes, I know, I can’t believe she can’t think of anything else to have us say while we’re having this all important decisive final meeting.”
“My thoughts precisely, let’s get out of hear and have this conversation in private.”
“Sounds good to me.”
So yeah, I’m definitely at the part where I feel like I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. S.
