Before you have a first baby, you get kind of lazy. You start nesting, watching daytime television, eating for two...this is all done subconsciously. This is because instinctively, somewhere in the back of your mind, you understand that taking a luxurious shower will soon become a luxury.
This is why I haven't gotten anything done this week on my WIP. Because I know, tomorrow starts national novel writing month and I'm going to go for it. I'm going to finish the fourth Ashley Stockingdale novel in the month of November. Yes, it will be a skeleton version. I'll have to go back in and add humor and layers, but I'm totally ready for the challenge.
I've got buddies on the program -- because they apparently figured out the website better than I did. And I have 12,553 words to start with -- I'm not sure how many of those words are usable, but I'm hoping at least 8k.
So I may get quiet. You, who have been nagging me for 8 years for a new Ashley book, this upcoming silence is for you!
First though, I'm going to continue the slothful streak and answer the door for Halloween while I watch the Ghost Adventures Crew live in Vlad the Impaler's Castle.
EDIT: Did not enjoy Vlad. Way too dark for my tastes!
For those out there joining me, woohoo! Here we go!
