NaNoWriMo begins in one week! Gaaaaaaaaaaah!
Actually, I think I'll be okay. Stressed out and drained and very grrrrrr for a month, but okay. I've already got a good handle on the four main characters, I know where the story starts and where it ends, and a few interesting things that happen in the middle. And I've already written something longer than this, so I know I can come up with enough stuff to hit 50,000 words. I mean, I've got more ideas for this one than I had when I started my first novel. More scenes worked out in my head, more characters named and gelling, and definitely a better rapport with the narrating character.
If you're wondering why I've been so silent this past week, it's because my brother and his girlfriend were here Wed-Sun on their midterm break from college. It's the first time I met his girlfriend, and I really like her a lot. He seems to have chosen wisely :-)
I should really come up with nicknames for them, so I don't have to keep saying "my brother" and "my brother's girlfriend"...how about "Johnnycake" and "Dimples"?
