First, the writing update. As I've mentioned before, I'm trying to finish my current project before the end of October, ending around 90,000 words or so. At this point I have:
I had hoped to be at 71,000 words, but since I'm closing in on the end of the novel I'm not so bothered by the word count at this point. And hey, there are still three weeks until NaNoWriMo, which is the date I absolutely have to finish. I don't think I really want to be working on two stories during that crazy month.
Speaking of NaNoWriMo, I still haven't decided which novel I'm going to write. I said back in August/September that I had an idea, but that has kind of fizzled since then. I got another idea yesterday, but I'm not sure my current enthusiasm for it will stick around.
It might just be another one of those infuriating New Shinys which a.) drag me away from my current project and b.) don't actually turn into a full-fledged story.
How's your writing coming? Do you have any deadlines you're trying to meet, either self-imposed or otherwise? Are you trying to finish any projects this month?
And are you doing NaNoWriMo?
(Oh, and you can friend me HERE at the NaNoWriMo site, if you're so inclined. Though I'm not sure what exactly is happening with their site as they're supposedly relaunching it today . . .)
Happy Columbus Day!
