So you've all heard the phrase 'bit off more than you could chew'? But how many of you have LITERALLY done that? Had your mouth SO FULL that you couldn't put your teeth together to break down the parts... worried about breathing in case you asphyxiated on something in your mouth... had to probe with your tongue and wait for aid from your salivation glands to start to break down the mass in your mouth.
When my daughter was about 3, she shoved a whole pancake in her mouth. This is something like that. What I have done is the figurative of the literal, and I know that sounds like nonsense, I just wanted you to be REALLY CLEAR about the sensation... there is so much I am almost incapacitated... yet I am not a person to go to the trash and spit part of it out. Hell, I even forgot to grab a napkin, as usual... This is a stubbornness thing... and also a refusal to buy into 'that's not ladylike', so potentially tied to feminism *shifty*.
Let me e'splain...
One week from today I will dive into NaNoWriMo.
Just so you know, I still plan to blog probably 5 days a week, but they may be shorter, and some of the content may be me flying by the seat of my pantslessness... I've got a file of helpful writing posts I've been collecting... maybe I will share some of THOSE. Whatever the case, I am keen on diving into the writing. Just so you all know where I am in PREP... I am planning on Storyboarding before starting, since I am writing a mystery and that seemed to work well for the Cozy... For MORE on that... what I've done, what I need to do, to get the storyboard written, check out tomorrow's post at Burrowers, Books and Balderdash.
Under the Wire
What the START date means though, is a DEADLINE for a dozen other things.
2) The LEGACY rewrite... this isn't the FINAL rewrite, of course, but I am committed to THIS rewrite before the WriMo. (December I will incorporate notes, and in January I will clean it—THEN it will be done...
3) Blogging: Not only have I committed to NaBloWriMo this month... I also joined the Blogging Crusade and have somehow ended up with 6 guest blogs to write... I LOVE having people invite me... the TIMING though, is making this just a little stressful. I have my OWN blog daily, a Burrow Blog once or twice a week, and then these guest blogs... Oi...
Okay, so underpants has nothing to do with this section, but calling my husband underpants at the moment is about the nicest thing I can think of. He's being a toad... he and my daughter are warring, and he was being unreasonable Friday night. He's not happy I took her side *rolls eyes *
So there we have it... the stress that is my life... I am making progress... I will do it all... but somehow I keep feeling on the verge of going under.
DON'T FORGET TO COME IN TOMORROW FOR THE TERRIFIC AND WISE WORDS OF ALEX CAVANAUGH!!!
