A Brief Update
I am tired, stressed, and incredibly cranky because I skipped lunch to go to a seminar that wasn’t completely mind blowing. There’s way too much to do before the holiday. I wish I could get myself cloned so I could do these things faster. I envy the students who have already taken off to get a head start on stuffing their faces with turkey.
On a Nanowrimo note: There’s a strong possibility I may hit 50k before the end of this coming weekend. Why do I think I can do this? I’m going to an all-night write-in on Friday for a possible total of twelve solid hours of writing. On Saturday, there’s a three hour write-in. And on Sunday, there’s another write-in for two hours. Let’s say I average 1k an hour (even though in reality I can do more than this). I need 13k to pass 50k. And there’s a total of 17 hours of write-ins. This will mean that I would have a 4 hour buffer.
Actually finishing the story is another matter.
I couldn’t do it. Actually, I think it’s more a matter of I wouldn’t attempt it. But then I don’t have a compulsion to write thousands of words. I have other compulsions. Are they better or worse? No telling.
