Listening to: Lagwagon, "Automatic"
Finished my first pass of revisions yesterday! It was a long slog to the end, but I managed. I wanted one day of sanity--or at least, non-writing-related insanity--before the big start.
That's right, NaNoWriMo starts at midnight tonight! Actually, it's already started for nine time zones. At 12:01 a.m tomorrow, I expect to be in front of the computer, pounding away at the keyboard. My word count might move slowly for this first week, since I'll be dealing with all the moving stuff, too. That's right, we're 99% sure that we're getting the hell outta this state on Saturday. I don't want to say 100%, as that may tempt the fates...and TH's company.
Short post today, as I have a long list of chores to do so I can squeeze in some writing time tomorrow. I'll be joined in the insanity by my friend Todd back in PA, and my friend Nancy in Wisconsin, and 80,000 other fools. Maybe more--I haven't seen an official count on the NaNo page yet. I just hope we all come out the other side sane and well.
And 50,000 words richer, of course.
If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
