Why yes, I am very behind on my wordcount.

Apparently, given the opportunity to write about anything, anything whatsoever, I gravitate towards two people bantering at each other.

Worldbuilding is hard.

Plastic bags are going to be our species' lasting contribution to this planet. I'm not sure how I feel about this.

Ironically enough, my two main characters argued about this today (the plastic bag thingies). Of course, they found themselves on a world where (as far as they know) they're the only two people there, so it kinda takes new implications when they were talking.
I listened to the audiobook version of The World Without Us at work, which was fascinating in a lot of ways, but wow, plastic bags.

Rubber tires are also apparently not going anywhere any time soon, and are also very useful for making into shoes.

I know what you mean. Granted, I come from a place where it's normal to recycle them a lot, but still, one can only get so much use out of one bag. It's a sobering thought that one day the earth may run out of people of my line, and that plastic bag would still be out there steadfastly resisting the ravages of time.

As for NaNoWriMo, please, PLEASE don't give up. I like your writing very much (InuTez love is surprisingly awesome), and while I haven't seen any sample of your novel-in-progress (you don't seem to have it posted), I sure would be glad when you finish it. So NaNo on!
Aww, thank you! I keep plugging away at it, and there are two more weekends left in the month, so we'll see what I can accomplish.

Last time I finished I emailed a copy to everyone who was interested, so watch this space!
