Hot damn

I’ve been writing furiously for my NaNoWriMo project because, alas, it’s a holiday month. Not that we’ll celebrate the holiday, but I’m going to go north for a few days to help Mom move.

I’ve enjoyed being ahead of schedule with my word count. Unfortunately, I’ll come back 5,000 words behind schedule. But like I can’t bullshit my way through those last 10,000 words in a few days. Sleep? What’s that? Like fresh air and daylight (other things I’m deprived of), apparently I’ve had enough in my life.

I’ve fallen in love with my characters. I’ve finally gotten a real picture of them — what they look like, what their natures and demeanors are, where they’re going to be (theoretically) in 10 years. Hell, I know them better than I know myself at this point. 😉

The break will be good for the imagination, I hope. I know my fingers will be itching to be typing while I’m gone. I also hope that, after I take a break in December — to catch up on the ever-elusive lifestyle maintenance things I’ve neglected due to being away from home too many hours a day and then staying up all night writing (example: I did five loads of laundry tonight — that only removed 50% of the dirty clothes from my bedroom floor *sigh*) — I’ll be able to fall back into the groove of finishing the book and doing a really good edit on it.

In the meantime, it’s my last chance (for now) to feel like I’ve kicked ass, so allow me just a moment to brag a lil bit:
