N is for Numb
My fingertips prickle with sensation. But that’s all.
Here, it’s easy to lose feeling. Acting on them could get us killed. It’s a defense mechanism, really. Without it, I don’t think I’d be alive.
I wonder what would have happened had I tried to stop them from taking him.
Would I still be so cold?
And here's the song Numb by Linkin Park, which is also on my writing playlist:
And, I just thought I should share the news.
a) I hit exactly 100,000 words on April 14th! My goal was to have that word count by the 15th, so I'm like dying with excitement about that!
b) I haven't actually finished the story yet. I've got about two chapters to go, I think, if my estimation is correct.
Now, there are two people I need to thank.
First of all, my mom for letting me sit around on the couch all weekend to get there. And because she got me Scrivener. Ever since I got it, I've been hammering out three thousand words a day without much problem. A few times I've hit eleven thousand. In a day. It's simply awesome. No other way to put it.
And last, but definitely not least, I have to thank T. Z. Wallace for making the suggestion for me to get it.
Thanks so much, everyone!
Now, have a Nonchalant(?) day!
