Today had been a pretty good day. I got enough sleep last night. I was kept busy at work making a brochure thing for a Career Fair they’re going to tomorrow. I even stayed an extra 25 minutes and didn’t mind a bit to finish them up. I got home and in the mail was an envelope from Social Security. I was all excited, thinking my new card had arrived with my married on it. But no, they returned what I sent along with a letter saying that I had to have proof of my new married name such as a license or health insurance card.
The reason I went to SS first was because I had read about people having trouble changing their name at the DMV without their updated SS card. I had read of people in PA being told they couldn’t change it without the new SS card. So I got rather upset. Now I’m going to have to wait longer to get my new card. I’ll attempt to change it at the DMV this weekend but that just ruined my good mood.
So I wasn’t in a good frame of mind to start my NaNo novel. It did not go very well. I had a really difficult time thinking and only ended up with 781 words for today. My novel is about a woman named Carolina who finds out her ex-boyfriend from years ago has died of unknown causes. She begins seeing his ghost around and tries to figure out how he died. She’s 26, has a long-distance boyfriend, and is assistant manager of a bookstore. As of now, I have no idea how he died, but hopefully by the end of the month I’ll know. If I make it till then writing the novel.
