I came to the realization today that we're only five days out from NaNoWriMo. Five days, people! THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
I've been less productive than I would have liked the last few days, so I'm sorry to say that I'm not ready at all. I should have started reading through my novel a couple days ago, but instead I'm rereading a nonfiction book about the 20s called Flapper. (I'll post about it later.) It's a good way to get me into the mood to write about the 1920s, but it also means I have only five days left to get ready to start rewriting my first Ruby novel.
I also have a full library cart of books about the 20s - some fiction, some nonfiction - that I wanted to get to as well. I really don't know what I was thinking. Forget "bit off more than I could chew" - "checked out more than I could read" should be a saying, although in this case it's literal.
I know I'm not the only one who isn't ready for NaNoWriMo. My husband only has an idea for what to write about - no story or characters - and one of my co-MLs said in our chat tonight that she doesn't know what she's going to write about at all!
The closer we get to NaNo, the more tempting it is to say never mind, I'll just work on my blogs, or a project that I'm more ready for... but I'm going to try to stick to the original plan, and work on Ruby!
