Dis/inhibition: I did NO work on the manuscript this week. Work has been an utter bear, and any spare time I have has been devoted to NaNo planning. The artist resurfaced, and we are back to work on illustration 5 of 6.

New story: I am trying to get everything prepped so I can just dive in Nov. 1. I was worried this week I might have to cancel NaNo altogether because of work, but in my mind, my job exists to support my life and my writing, and if it actually starts to prevent me from doing the things I want to do, than it's not a job I want. So NaNo proceeds, and I will try not to go completely insane.

Oh, yay.

good luck. I still have an entire unit to prep for class and the haunted house all next wek. My sanity is also in jeopardy

We'll end up in adjoining padded cells at the funny farm. Party.

I'm excited about NaNoWriMo - mainly because I'm cheating and using it as an excuse to type up my first draft.

Cheating at NaNo is a long and proud tradition. My goal is to get 50,000 words deeper into my first draft. So if I find a great spot in upcoming chapters where words I've already written would fit in just dandy, then I'm counting them.
