The warm October day that we've been waiting for all month long is now quickly vanishing as a cold and forceful wind has started up. Tomorrow should be the kind of Halloween that I've always dreamed of. The kind that I watched on TV when all the stations were showing holiday specials. We're in for a cold and howling wind, the kind that sends dried leaves into dizzying spirals around your feet. Tomorrow will be a Sleepy Hollow night.
So I decided to try it out. I'm following my fellow LJ friends into the depths of insanity and I've signed up for National Novel Writing Month. I figure I have almost nothing going on in my life and my writing portfolio is TRAGICALLY lacking. Besides, 50,000 words is only about 1,600 words a day. Of course, now that I think about it, that's approx the length of a 6 page essay (times new roman, double spaced). Now - I have written my fair share of 6 page essays in one day during my time at college (but never for you, Laurie, NEVER for you!), but doing that every day for 31 days? Man. Of course, I think I can bank my words. I'll figure it out.
Now - what I really DO need to figure out, seeing how I am so late to the party, is what I AM going to write about. I have a day to come up with a plot. Or just to see where it's going. There's been a short story floating around in my head that maybe I can use as a subplot. We'll see.
SO! 50,000 WORDS IN 31 DAYS! YES! YES IT CAN BE DONE!
And I will have my fucking portfolio finished in time. Hells yeah bitches.
