Somehow I survived summer at the Teen Center (I came close to suicide/homicide a few times, but hey, what job doesn't
drive you to want to start randomly shooting people?). Anyhow, with that experience under my belt and the hope that I might soon be able to become a fully functioning human being again, I'm thinking ahead. I love to make plans...whether they all come to fruition is another thing. Ahem.
Anyhow, since it's come up in several online conversations I've had lately, I'm stewing over whether to do NaNoWriMo this year. Yes, I crashed and burned spectacularly last year, but I'm still two out of three. However, I will only participate if I finish both the contemporary romance I'm working on right now and The Quality of Mercy
. Although my actions may sometimes indicate otherwise, I really do hate leaving projects unfinished. The good news is that I'm more than two-thirds done on the contemporary and probably only have about three chapters left on QoM, so this is all doable as long as I'm able to maintain a somewhat even keel. However, I also know that I'd better not push it for NaNo, which means if I do participate, it'll probably be fanfic. Not sure what yet. Maybe my long-postponed Snape/Sinistra fic. I think that might be easy-going enough to keep me from ripping my hair out. We'll see.
Also, wee bit of a warning here -- I've mostly avoided discussing politics on this journal, but I don't think I'm going to keep it that way. For those of you who might be offended by my p.o.v., I'll try to put any rants behind a cut so you can just politely skip over it. I just know that I'm not going to be able to keep my mouth shut (much the way I got in a drunken screaming match with a dear friend of mine last night when he tried to defend McCain's choice of Anti-Abortion Barbie as his running mate).
So anyway. As the Chinese proverb goes, may you live in interesting times....
Also, food for thought
