One more day…
I’m having visions of rushing my kid through trick or treating tomorrow and getting home so she can go to bed and then I can sit in front of the computer, fingers poised, and wait for the clock to strike midnight.
Pretty silly. Maybe I’m excited because I’ve been needing something to push myself into a challenge. Somehow “official” challenges always work better than self imposed ones. Sure, I could drop out of NaNo sometime in November when I decide that I really didn’t have the time to commit..but that would seem so…so…lame. I don’t know if I will be able to make 50,000 words or not, for me, that is A LOT of words in one month, but I’m going to give it my best shot. I am probably quite unnaturally excited about the prospect. There’s just such an air of anticipation and friendliness about the whole thing at the NaNo website and on Twitter and everywhere, that you can’t help but smile with the thought of happily scribbling your way through November as you cheer on your fellow writers. Could be that I’m just seeing it through a first timer’s eyes. Still, I’m ready.
I have my idea ready and have warned my sister that if my daughter should appear at her house one night looking like an abandoned waif, to please take her in and feed her and maybe offer her a nice bath. 🙂
