Didn't write last night. I just didn't feel it, and I confess, with a comfortable lead, I let it slide. Today I wanted to get in a 10k day. So far I have...nothing.

I'm going to get something hot to drink, something healthy to eat, and swap my laundry from washer to dryer. Then I'm going to put on some kick-ass NaNoing music and get to work. NaNoWriMo sprints coming up at the top of the hour. :D

For now, I'm at 28,819 words. I want to be at 45,000 by the end of the week. I was going for a double-NaNo of 100k this year, though that's not looking 100% likely at this stage...but we'll see.

And now, off for some protein!

I'm in crisis over TLF. It is such a bloody mess right now. Last week I was trying to work out plotting on it and stuff, because I've decided to go back in time from where I started the last draft, and I think it needs to be two books, actually, rather than one, and...well, frankly, it's a MESS. When I started writing this novel, EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO, it was a story about Bria. Now the main characters of the first novel are Brandon and Justin, and Bria is really going to be only an off-screen character until Book Two.

*tears hair*

So at this point, I'm going to go back to work revising FTGGI (and retitling it) and getting it ready to submit somewhere by the end of February. (This is the novel that didn't make it to the ABNA semi-finals.) I have fantastic notes from [livejournal.com profile] slightlyjillian and [livejournal.com profile] krycek_chick for revision, so it's a matter of knuckling down to work on it.

I hate that I keep putting off work on TLF, but as much as I love my other novels, TLF is the one closest to my heart, with characters I care most about. I made a huge mistake in trying to work on it for NaNo this past year, and until I work out the plotlines I want to braid together, and the ones I need to winnow out, I'm not going to be able to do it justice.


So these are my goals:
  • Submit "Trade All My Tomorrows" to a professional-rate market by Feb 1.

  • Complete a first draft of my [livejournal.com profile] castlewriters Winter Challenge story by Feb 29.

  • Submit FTGGI to either an agent or a publisher by March 1.

  • Commit to working on TLF daily come March 1.
