Books and Writing
So I broke down and put aside Titus Groan last night to read some fluff (why yes, that would be Sorcery and the Single Girl). And it was good. And then, this morning, I received the Nanowrimo reminder in my inbox, and realized I better get my butt in gear if I actually want a vague chance at success this time around. (My last foray into Nanowrimo was less than a dazzling success.)
So, this means that I must finish off both the R.I.P. II and Books to Movie challenges by the end of October. I'm not worried about the Armchair Traveler challenge, as I have more than enough time to read two books for that in December.
And what shall I write? I have a vaguely sci fi idea kicking around in my head that doesn't want to leave me alone. I think it has 50k work potential, but even if it doesn't, this month will be a good opportunity to get the bulk of my ideas down on paper and out of the way. I tend to write in important scenes first, and then go back and fill in the transitions. Getting those scenes out on (virtual) paper actually helps me go back and fill in the rest of the story. So we'll see what I can do.
