Last day of classes now; I just have my 3-hour Anthro lecture at 6pm, and then I'm FINISHED! Well, except for the exams, but whatever.

I am *so* tired; I can't wait to be able to sleep in again. I don't think I've gotten more than 4 hours a night for the last two weeks.


Blurg. So, catch-up news: finished Nano on time (just by a couple hours . . . eep!) and am now revising. I think I might cut out the first 23k entirely, and just expand the stuff that happens in Ribanoak . . . the travelling part is pretty dull overall, and doesn't have much significance to the plot. So far I've written a new first scene, changed the history of Jorna and Jorna & Rulik's friendship. I really, really, want to get this written, but I'm so lacking in energy right now, thanks to the Term Papers of Hell. Maybe over the break. I'm still having a bit of awkwardness with the point of view - I don't know what it is, but it's bugging me majorly and slowing down the writing process. It seems so far that the only improvments to the second draft will be plotting, not narration.

I'm considering cutting out Rotam entirely - I don't like writing her, so she always comes out as rather 2-D. It's too bad, though, I enjoyed the dynamic . . . maybe I'll keep her as a side chara?

So, I've been in hiding the last week, catching up on my nano. I wrote around 20k . . .


And lost it all. Now I'm even further behind.

Computers suck majorly.




On the bright side, I did find the boxed set DVDs of Queer as Folk seasons 1 & 2 at London Drugs, marked down to $49.99. (Canadian dollars!) Of course, I bought them immediately. (I'd been saving up to get them anyways; and now I have both for less than the price of just one!) I need more money so I can get the other 3 seasons. There's something deliciously ironic in the way that I purchase all my slashtastic goods with money earned babysitting for various uber-Christian families.


Still, I have no time for watching, thanks to stupid losing-ness of two thirds of my nano.

Behind already. Damn twelve-hour school days and babysitting until 1:30am - I only have just over 5k now, and I *do* need to go to bed soon. And babysitting again tomorrow, from 3:30 until god knows when in the morning.

Gahh! Life should stop in November. It's far too much to ask to do laundry and dishes as well as novelling. Argh.

Seven more days until Nanowrimo.

This year, I will finish. [mind over matter] It will definately help to start on time, and have a general plot in mind. ^_^


EDIT: Oh wait - October comes before November. *is stupid*
