My binge is complete. I have everything finished, I’m caught up in the class, and my grades are pretty damn good. Hallelujah!
In other news, I’ve had an 8-10 page essay assigned for Victorian Literature that is due–you guessed it–right in the middle of Nanowrimo. That might very well kill me. On the plus side, it’s just an analysis, no research involved. (I can’t even begin to describe how much I hate research papers.)
On the writing front, I’ve finished rewriting The Recruited up through chapter ten. I’m also about a day away from finishing prompt #47 Crime in the 100 Prompts Challenge, which I’ve been working on since the earth cooled. (Seriously. It feels like that long.)
That’s the good news. The bad news is that chapter eleven is way too long to rework in three days, unless I’m going to kick my own ass and really get it done. I also don’t want to start another prompt in the challenge right before Nanowrimo, so that’s out. I suppose I could work on The Lost, but I’m kind of burned out on actually coming up with new prose for that universe, and I have a feeling I’ll feel a lot more inspired after I spend a month working on something else.
Now the question is: what am I going to write between now and Nanowrimo??? I mean, I know it would be a really good idea to wait until the contest starts Sunday night and just not do anything between then and now, but . . . I don’t know if I can do the not-writing thing. That would be a first.
Oh well. Three days until the Nanowrimo kick-off party! Cannot freaking wait!
