Chapter VIII gets a start November 16, 2006

A weird experience tonight updating my progress on the NaNoWriMo website.  I typed in the number of words I had written tonight, 1,888, and I though about how many, or how few that is. 

When I was in graduate school I lived in this really small town in the Pacific Northwest called Palouse.  There was a hotel there, well the building had at one time been a hotel, even though there were less than a thousand people in the town and it was 15 miles of wheat between it and any other town at all.  The hotel, St. Elmo’s, had been built in 1888.  So it made me think about how I had written, in a couple of hours, a word for ever year since the birth of Christ (for that is how I was brought up to think about years, of course.) 

I just amazed me to think that there are so few years and that things have changed so much.  Because a year doesn’t seem very long to me any more.  And they just seem to roll by. 

I must be awfully tired, I suppose.
