panic ensues

Today marks Day 1 of NaNoWriMo. Think positive thoughts for me.

Because I have to spend more time writing a novel, I may have to cut back on the amount of time I spend here with you. I will keep posting. Regular features, such as Three Beautiful Things and Into the Stacks, will continue to appear, although I cannot swear to the latter’s timeliness. But other posts may have more of a “AAAAAAACKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!” feeling to them than before. And there will be less knitting content (although, for those of you who keep coming back for that, I do have my Socktoberfest socks that will be blogged about later this week), because I will have less time to knit.

Other November things to look forward to:

  • Concerts by James Taylor, Bob Dylan, and Brian Wilson
  • Running with Scissors, Stranger than Fiction, and A Good Year
  • A long Thanksgiving weekend in Connecticut
  • Election results (I’m staying positive here, people!)

I didn’t check my word count before I left for work, but when I got up from bed this morning, I did dutifully sit down at the computer and typed out my first paragraph. It’s something along the lines of three sentences. I wrote those 50ish words before I got the email from the NaNoWriMo folks who said I ought to aim for 2000-2500 words a day for the first week. After that I curled back up on the couch to whimper for a few minutes….
