“I don’t usually give up. Until I see smoke. If you see smoke, that’s the only time you give up.”
J has tackled some pretty finicky, frustrating problems this week, including saving me from being stranded with a dead car battery this afternoon. And when he finished up solving another problem he’d been working on since Monday–one where he had to change his strategy several times and take things apart and put them back together again several times and test and retest things–he said that. ^^^
So I think that’s his kind way of telling me to not throw my hands up and quit because the NaNoWriMo isn’t going as smoothly as I’d hoped and I’m kind of pouty about it.
I’m not seeing any smoke.
So…not giving up.
