Well, today’s update is that I am 3708 words into a brand-spanking new story. Yes, I know I shouldn’t. But I’m going to fake NaNo it—fake because I’ve already started—and I’ll write hardcore between now and November 30 and then stop and see what I have. I figure it’ll be easier to just power through something I don’t really care about, as opposed to the magnum opus that I’ve been working on for over a year, and I think actually finishing something—anything—would be really good for my self esteem.
Not that my self esteem is particularly shaky at the moment. Let’s face it, I’m pretty wonderful.
So anyway. I’m just going to write for a month and a half and see what happens. I’m aiming for 75K in order to keep proper NaNo pace. (That’s about 1700 words/day for those of you playing at home.)
And away we go.
