It’s getting closer! Here are the things that are currently on my to-do list for getting to and through November with my dignity intact (and a novel, although that is secondary):
- Reread the novel. I am fairly certain I know where I’m going and what I need to do, but there are some fuzzies in my brain and I need to make sure I’m still headed in the right direction.
- Go over the plan for the rest of the book. I am, I would say, comfortably 2/3 of the way through, but I only have vague hand-waving for what I want the end to look like. I can pants some of it, but not all.
- Stock up on good coffee, dark chocolate, and bourbon. (Ol’ Uncle Hemingway would be proud, I guess?)
I am also going to start getting up early and writing or reading in the mornings… hoping to make it a routine. Notwithstanding that I got up at 9:30am this morning. But it’s going to be a journey that I take with myself again. I spent a lot of time a few years ago getting up at 5am every day to write before heading to the office.
This is going to be fun! I am actually looking forward to prioritizing my creativity again. Here’s to Dranna and the rest of the gang. We’re finally going to find that keystone.
