I’m a complete fool. No really, an utter fool. Here I am starring down a little over one hundred pages of revisions, a deadline, and NaNo???
Madness I tell you.
Well, maybe not all madness all the time. See, I’ve been working hard on this dissertation thing (see the progress bar? I’m such a big fan of progress bars!), and I think I need a little less stick and a bit more carrot in my life. So I’m doing NaNo.
I know, I said I wasn’t, but don’t worry, I’ve never actually joined NaNo and done it. I’ve Joined and procrastinated doing NaNo, or used NaNo to leverage myself into something else.
Well not this year… Or maybe exactly this year. Either way, I’ll be joining friends writing, blogging a little less, and basically, I’ll be turning my awesome book idea into a, yanno, book.
For the record, I’ll be working on The Princess Singularity. It still needs a whole back half, and that could be 50,000 words. If I get to the end and I haven’t reached 50K, then I’ll be going back to the beginning to rewrite from scratch all the things I screwed up the first time around. In short, I’m breaking the rules, but I’m a rule breaker…
Okay, I may or may not actually be such a painfully law abiding citizen that I wait at the corner to cross the street until the light changes, even when there are no cars… sometimes (read: pretty much every morning).
Right. To NaNo!
(as a side note, I think that may have just become my new battle cry).
