Not counting today (which is almost over) there are only four days left before NaNoWriMo begins.
And my characters still do not have new (easily typed) names.
Well, the warrior might. I’m not really in love with it, though.
And the wizard’s wife has a name, but she’s a minor character. Figures, doesn’t it?)
So, yeah. Four days left and I have no names.
My outline is shaping up nicely, though. I have solved a bit of a logic problem (one that has plagued me for the entire series, actually) and I think I have enough plot points to get me through November. I am still working on it, however, and will be refining and revising right up until midnight Tuesday night.
And in between now and then I have to do a lot of running on Saturday, and then work on Monday. (I took off Tuesday – and Wednesday, of course.) And somewhere in there I have to get groceries.
And in my free time I need to finish assembling the Work Box 3.0 that I finally took the plunge and bought. It’s not all that hard to assemble, actually, but the pieces are heavy so I can only do a little bit at a time and then have to stop and rest my back.
And I need more floor space because the whole thing is assembled on the floor and when it’s all put together you stand it up. (Me and what army? The individual pieces are heavy. The shipping weight was a little under 700 pounds. This is going to be… interesting.)
So, I have the weekend and Monday evening and Tuesday to finish putting the Work Box together and get it upright. (And put the front room back together too because Jazzy would really love to have access to her couch.)
If I can just clear enough space to work, assembly is doable.
Naming characters, however…
