Nine days until NaNo starts.
I've got half my research done. It seems like every time I research something – There is another thing that pops up!
I printed off the fifty-five single-spaced pages (of seemingly useless info) I have so far. Then I sat down, hole punched them and attacked it with three different sized sticky notes -- all to make some sense out of what I'm doing.
I’m still not there.
This is the biggest project I've ever taken on. Can I do it?
Historical accuracy? Do I really need that? Can't I just make stuff up? Wouldn't it be just as good?
There’s a reason I’m doing this for NaNo:
(1) I can push through without thinking about it.
(2) At 50 thousand words, I’ll know whether or not I can pull it off.
(3) If I can’t, I’ve only wasted a month.
So… we’ll see.
And to all my fellow Okinawa peeps… I’d really like to do NaNo with someone. I know, you’re all laughing… I’m just saying, I’m going to be lonely sitting in a coffee shop every night by myself. Don’t you feel sorry for me? Isn’t there one person who wants to at least try? I can bribe you… I’ll buy you a coffee!
