Tomorrow is going to be an interesting day. I have to get up at 7:30 AM and get out the door by 8:00. I get to go to the writer’s group and get started at 9:30 (and they keep creeping the time up on me…) and try to stay awake until they close everything at 1:00. Now, you might be telling me that it’s only three and a half hours and I should suck it up. You’re right…I’m getting up earlier for this than I get for my day job. After that, I duck out for a quick lunch and go to the NaNoWrimo write in from 2:00 to 5:00 and try to make up a 3,600 word deficit from Wednesday. I did about 2,000 today in a couple of hours, so getting the 3,500 in three hours shouldn’t be a big deal. Even if I get half that, I will come home and start the laundry, do the dishes and make up the difference while half listening to a hockey game. As long as I hit 3,500 by midnight I’m good.
Am I complaining? I hope I don’t sound like it (except for getting up at 7:30, that just sucks balls). It’s going to be a good excuse for me to eat out for all the meals, this cutting down on the numbers of dishes I will have to do. I’m spending time writing, which is what I want to do for a living and I like hanging out with other writers, still it’s a good way to network. The only downside is that I’m not going to have any time to get caught up on any of the series I’m watching when I do watch TV. Speaking of which, I got the series package for “American Horror Story: Coven” this week. Next week, I’m going to get caught up with “Sons of Anarchy” and maybe in the first of December I’ll indulge a private vice if mine and get the current season of “The Ultimate Fighter” and gaze at Rhonda Rousey.
As far as the first novel, I’m getting ready to give the artist my step of approval and see if I can get a blurb for the back cover before anything goes to print…which I am still looking at getting it out there at the first of the New Year. After that, I’m going to focus on only one novel at a time. I thought I could do double duty, but that is sadly not the case right now. Maybe when I can dedicate more time to writing, but not right now with the day job. All the more reason to work hard with getting the first novel our and finish the Tyro novel. The Nano-novel is going to be a low priority. I’ll finish it (hopefully by the end of November) and set it far aside and get back to the Tyro novel and get it done and ready to be released as the second novel of the year and try to get the second novel finished and out the door before year’s end. After that, I think I’ll work on I/O Error and give fantasy and romance a rest.
Well, I’ve got an hour and a half until the marathon day. I’d better get my iron pills and caffeine ready. I’m sure you’ll have a more restful day than me, but it won’t be as fun.
