So Here It Is
Soooooooooooooooooo . . . it's practically November. And I did not forget my New Year's Resolution. Which means it's, like, time to start. Thursday.
Now that it's here I am SO anxious. I have a story line that I'm pretty sure is decent enough. My main characters are about as fleshed out as they can get without actually writing anything about them. Heck, I've even got my multiple word count widgets over there >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> so everybody can keep track of how it's going. Because you're all totally going to be waiting with baited breath to see the word count every day. Lol.
On the other hand . . . talk about rotten timing with the whole adding-a-potentially-lengthy-presidency-meeting-every-week thing. Blargh.
Also: I've only done 50,000 words once. Granted, I have done it, so do at least have an idea of what I'm in for. But only once, it was seven years ago, and it took an entire semester. I suppose a semester isn't all that much more than a month . . . but it feels like a lot more.
And then there's the part where I have to type it all in the first place (because counting each and every hand-written word just isn't going to happen). Not sure how that's going to go. My hands are itching to grab a luxuriously thick-inked, brightly colored gel pen and get going - but my pile of notebooks shall remain empty this time. Sad day.
Anyway. Starting this weekend I'll be going into hiding (well, even more, I guess I should say). Feel free to start taking bets on whether I'll even survive. :-)
See you on the other side.
P. ost S. cript
Here's hoping I retain this much sanity come December 1.
