Well, now I kind of have real readers sometimes, so you can hold me accountable. Because now you know my goals and you can make me feel guilty through the Intramanets if I don't complete them. Right? Yeah. I don't want to disappoint you! (pretend like you'll be disappointed if I don't complete my goals) I like how I have to create fallback guilt trips for myself in order to get anything done. My life is obviously in order.
Goal: finish Across the River Styx by the time I go to China (December 31). Remember how I started that novel (the first draft) in January of this year? I have let the second draft sit for way too long. I know this is going to involve 2,000+ word writing days, but thanks to NaNoWriMo and Three (which I have been writing at an unbelievable rate, basically wrote a novella in two weeks - if you're really motivated, it actually doesn't take a long time to write; imagine that!) I believe in my ability to do that. It will be a writing spree like no other. But what a great way to start off the new year, huh? I'll be starting it on a stuffy plane, watching lame-ass movies, but let's not think about that.
The countdown begins. Nine days left.
