What made you think you could do this? Are you insane?
Well, I just decided I needed to do it. I just really, really want to and if I don’t do it sometime I’ll never do it.
Needed to do it? What about needing to get the show ready for dress rehearsals next week and dealing with your car tag and Christmas Knitting and OMG DRESS REHEARSALS and do you know where your Christmas knitting is…. Did you have to NEED to do this now.
Well this is when NaNoWriMo is, November. A lot of other stuff happens in November, I know but it’s not like I haven’t learned how to put my life on hold for productions.
So just how is this extravaganza going anyway?
I don’t know. It’s all over the place. I can’t connect the scenes up and I have whole pages of stuff that doesn’t belong. Last night I added a ghost and a dog. I think that might be helping.
And you think this is progress?
Well everyone who has done this before says its gets more coherent as you go and the stuff that doesn’t fit can be edited out in the rewrite.
Rewrite? You mean there’s more? You aren’t just going to start a bonfire with the manuscript and sacrifice it to the Gods of bad writing?
I sure hope not.
Well count me out of this. I need to go collect some firewood. While you’re busy I’ll just worry about the dust bunnies under the table and whether or not you paid the power bill, OK? Just get some sleep will ya- all this is hurting my head.
Watch that attitude, missy. I can always write you in to the book and I don’t have to be nice.
