whatever happens

I'm feeling much less depressed now. Almost human again. I'm going to try to catch up with my flist tonight, if I can.

I think the major reason I'm coming out of it is Nano. The excitement waited until today to grab me. I sat down at lunch in a cold sweat, since I have no plot (boy and girl fall in love and live happily ever after is not a plot) and one of my major characters didn't even have a name! I thought lejune's icon was simply perfect for me. But who cares? The character has a name now (Guy Dorne) and as for plot... well, who cares about plot anyway? On Saturday morning I'll just start writing. After all, that's the point of Nano. Right?

Every year they get more famous authors to give us pep talks. This year, they include (drum roll) Piers Anthony, Meg Cabot, Brian Jacques, and Philip Pullman!!

I often wonder if my non-Nano friends think I go nuts at this time every year.

Glad to see you're feeling better; and good luck with Nano! I'm planning on taking November off from writing to focus on other artistic hobbies.
Aren't you supposed to go nuts? This will be my first year living with somebody who's doing that... I have no ambition to write a novel. My ambitions involved comic books, but I should probably try the same kind of thing, page a day or something for a month.
ROFL!! Good luck living with a Nano person. We don't communicate, never mind socialize, during November. We eat at our computers (or our notepads), drink lots of caffeine, and don't bathe often enough. We expect everything else to be dropped until November is ended, and not to be bothered with trifling things - and anything short of a 3-alarm fire is considered trifling.

Good luck to you! And to your Nano-er!
I'm glad you're feeling better. I've been thinking of you all week.
