About time I post more than a paragraph, eh?
Less than a week until the next semester. Actually rather looking forward to it. I miss friends and being able to wander around and trading snark with my Latin teacher. I miss learning stuff. Not looking forward to this homework thing but other than that…
Speaking of college. Went to buy books today. Apparently not one but *two* of my profs neglected to tell the bookstore what texts they were using, so the bookstore didn’t have any idea what books to order. So they didn’t. So if the class *does* have a textbook, I may have to buy it online, which means I can’t use student loan money for it. Because my profs didn’t do their paperwork.
Well done, professors. I am Not Impressed.
Next, NaNo. I have tentatively titled it “A Fog that Never Fades” which is totally wrong but fuck it, I don’t care at this point. I’m tired of calling it “That NaNo thing.” I am… almost done with the first draft. Like. Within a few k. I’ve got a half-page worth of outline left of plot, and then a few epilogish ideas. I might even finish it this week.
It feels weird.
I’ve *never* finished a long story. I’ve never even gotten close. I’m not nervous, just… bewildered, I guess? Bewildered and unsure and confused about what the next step is. I actually like the draft, mostly, which is surreal enough as it is that I want to throw the draft at people so I can check that I’m not completely insane. Maybe it actually broke me this year…
By the way, would anyone be interested in reading it? *bright smile* I haven’t decided if I want to post it or not.
…I think that’s enough for tonight. Have more rambling but that’ll fit better elsewhere, I think.
