another overnighter

7am in Brooklyn, New York, and it's 45°F/7°C.

I have been up all night writing, on and off, since midnight. Since I was a kid these were the best hours for me, and I have written tomes of journals at these times. Don't know how many words I wrote tonight, as I'm only keeping track of my totals, and that was 14K+ when I stopped writing.

It should be a fairly uneventful day, except for a drs. visit to get some prescriptions. On that note, I had mentioned sometime back about going through some cardiac testing... I have done that, and the results came back that I have a fine heart, and good carotid arteries, so a large scare I felt has been relieved. The cause of my passing out episodes remains a mystery, and may have been due to a drop in blood pressure, I really don't know. I'm just glad my heart is in as good a shape as the doctor said it is.


  1. Glad you're ok Barb! And Yay!! So glad you are really getting into the writing! :)))

  2. Barbara--I have a history of fainting myself. It's almost always a result of a drop in bp due to dehydration. I have what the doctors call a vascular (or some other word related) sensitivity. Wear your fainting like a crown, but seriously, your body needs to chill out. :)

  3. Meant to say yesterday - if you wish to buddy up with me on NaNoWriMo, my ID is WrightStuff. I'm just attacking it now and realising how behind everyone else I am!

    Glad to hear you got a good report from the docs!

  4. barbara, i love to stay up late too. it's my own little world then....

    you're writing! you're doing it!


  5. Hi! I have an award for you on my blog! :)
