I’ve been buried in NaNo preparation the last two days and there is progress and reversals and more progress and much banging of the head on my desk (not literally, of course, I like my head).
Overall I think I am finding my pace with this project and still hopeful that I’ll have something resembling an outline ready by November 1st. My greatest enemy is perfection, yep, I’m one of those cursed people that loves having things right the first time and you all know that never happens in writing. So, I’m just putting together what I have, which I think is considerable given that I’ve only been working on this for 18 days and let the chips fall where they may.In the end, I’ll have a solid vision of this story by the end of November, and know what will and won’t work for it.
Looking to the long road, December will be assessment and re-outlining followed by a January-February rewrite. Yes, that’s right, NaNo hasn’t started yet and I’m already planned for re-writes.
I’m caught up on my lessons for Kristen Lamb’s Blogging for Brand class. Tons of great information there, by the way.
I did my first walk on the treadmill in about a month and a half on Sunday. Felt good and yes I tweeted it on #ROW80. Every time I walk I’ll be putting out a tweet that says #ROW80 Accountability: I just walked for x minutes and x distance. Or something similar. Next walk will be this afternoon so watch for the tweet. I know my awesome ROWbro Kerry is doing the same thing.
Thanks to everyone that commented, left suggestions, war stories and generally threatened to keep us accountable on Sunday. Your friendship is invaluable *smile*
Hope all of you are having a great week! Oh, and, *teaser* there will be kitten pics on Sunday.
