I finished the first draft of my outline for my NaNoNovel. I haven't started writing, I promise! The rules say that outlining's OK, and I'm taking advantage of that. It's the first time I've written an outline for something I'm going to write. My experience from the last time I did NaNo and actually won (two years ago) is that I really need to know where I'm going before I start writing. I'm sure that there will be revisions to the outline over the next several weeks, but I promise, no writing until November 1.

So, that's how my writing has been going. That's one of the things I said I was going to work on for the "back to school" project. Everything else is pretty much status quo, though I've been slacking off on the morning pages (largely because I've been inspired to do some actual work[!] in the mornings, but partly because Mary's been getting up with me in the AM), which I was doing to give myself some focus.

The weather here has been just beautiful, and probably will be for several more weeks, at which point it'll probably start raining all the time. I'm sitting out on the deck with Mary. The guy next door is driving a backhoe around his property, leveling it off. And life is good, and the world is made of doughnuts.


EDIT: speaking of later, LJ seems to think that I'm posting this an hour later than it is. Go figure.
