As you can see the month is almost over. I might not die. And I have over 40,000 words so I might actually do this thing. Wow. Just wow.
Now I have a couple of problems. The first one is I’m afraid I am going to run out of story before I hit 50,000 words. Then what do I do?
The second is I am having a hard time finding something to read. I don’t want to read anything in the genre I am writing because I don’t want it to influence what I’m writing. And I have a book in the genre I am working on sitting on my desk calling to me in an inviting fashion. It’s such a tease.
Of course now I also want to re-read On Writing by Stephen King and Bird by Bird by Anne LaMott. But I’m afraid if I read any writing books right now it will interfere with my groove, if that’s what you want to call it. They will have to wait until December. That’s probably a good thing because December Is For Editing. Although in my case I suspect any editing will have to wait until January.
I probably shouldn’t be talking about this like I’ve already finished it. Disaster could still strike between now and next Monday.
