For anyone just now tuning in: November is National Novel Writing Month - 50,000 words in one short month, to cross the finishline!
Just popping up from the rabbithole to say "Hi!" It's been fun so far & I'd thought I'd actually been pretty productive - a whole chapter! Woo-hoo! It's a blast, "falling through the hole in the page" (I think that's how Stephen King put it in his book on writing, which I have lying around here somewhere, but of course I can't find it right now to tell you it's actual title....)
Anywhooo, thought I'd been pretty productive, until I saw how much other people have gotten written in the past 4 days. I now realize I better step up the production rate... How many days are there in November? THIRTY!?!? Well, at the rate I've been writing I should be finished by oh, CHRISTMAS! well, maybe New Year's...
I've been just a little too a.r. about self-editing as I go - a bad habit I picked up years ago in another life, when writing newsletters & such. I need to just let 'er rip & pick up the pieces later.
That & somehow I've got to coerce the rest of the family to let me out of some of the ta-ta - like, can't someone else take Peanuts to the Spaymobile tomorrow? (it's HIS lucky day tomorrow! Hope the girlycats are nice to him when he comes back home; for that matter, hope it goes smoother for me than when I took THEM to the Spaymobile (see "Lost In Suburbia" post in Oct).
So, it's been great seeing you (I admit I had to jump around checking on everyone's blogs to see how they're doing...I'm such a looky-loo!), but now it's back down the rabbit-hole!! Thank you so much, everyone, for your Good Luck wishes! It meant a lot to me! You're great!! Can't wait till I see you again...
