As of this writing I have less than 36 hours of sanity remaining.
Tomorrow, the plan is to clean the rat cage and do a lot of minor chores to get them out of the way before the start of Camp and NaPoWriMo.
I may also have a farewell party for my sanity.
How much of anything will I get done tomorrow?
Optimism says “All of it!”
Experience says, “Not much.”
Am I ready for Camp?
Nope. I have no outlines in place and am going to be winging it.
I’m also not starting where I had planned.
See, I had planned on wrapping up this novel (and thus the trilogy) before Camp so I could go right into book two of The Other Mages trilogy, but it’s not going to happen. I don’t really seem to be any closer to the end of it than I was a week ago, mostly because someone from Arrek’s past showed up and through a wrench into my plans.
Still, she’s making for an interesting twist…
And it’s not really bad that it won’t be finished before Camp – it just gives me something else to work on in April. I have set my goal to 60,000 words, or 2k-a-day. I’m pretty sure that book two won’t need that many words to be finished, so having something else to eat them up is a good thing.
And even between the two of them I might not hit 60k, so then it’s on to something else, probably either an Academy of the Accord novel or some side stories.
I may not be ready, but I am starting to get excited.
Let the insanity begin!
