Visited the library this morning. Was a wee bit disappointed, until I remembered I can go online and request books to be sent to this branch. Oh happy days. So I just requested a whole bunch of books including ones suggested by my flist. Thank you! :D


It is funny how we grow and change. Once upon a time I loathed the idea of first person. Yet my favorite books are first person. Go fig. I realized that and pushed that loathing aside and have found myself enjoying first person now. Shocking I know.

UF I have long detested. But then I hate fads and it felt very faddish to me. But I have several 'friends' here on lj (most on my other lj actually) who write UF. So it felt like I was betraying my 'friends' by being stubborn and disliking UF. So I started reading it and I found myself liking some of it (God forbid!).

I might even admit to being a fan of it.

But that is what self-education is all about, isn't it? Teaching ones-self to change ones opinion. Learning how to open your mind up more than it was before. Lord knows I have a long way to go, but I really hope, I truly believe I will be a better person because I am pushing out of my comfort zones.

Anyways, I'm not even sure if that makes sense to anyone besides me.

I have felt very different this nano from prior nanos. I haven't been worrying that I won't get the words done. I know I will. I haven't worried about the suckage cause hey, you can always edit later.

I have been pretty calm about my writing. I seem to write for three to four days then take a day or three off then go at it again. Currently I am sitting at 33063. I did 3224 words today. Throughout the day, in between mommy duties.

There has not been the rush and panic and "oh no! Am I behind???" I am a little puzzled at how calm I am about this.

33063 / 50000
(66.13%)



I have felt a change in me, in how I write, how I form the story in my head. How I prepare for it and how I actually write it down. As I worked on this Island Story, solutions for other stories hit me. The realization of what I need to do has combined with a sudden confidence I have found in my writing. In my abilities. In myself.

I know I will accomplish this.

My monstrosity, my UF ideas, my various fantasy ideas and even that Space Romance thing. I know I will complete them. I know I will be able to do a passable job and with time make them shiny and pretty.

I think my main hope is that other people will love my characters as much as I do. I worry I won't be able to bring them across to others the way they are in my head.

But at the same time I know I can. It is a matter of simply doing it.
