What I Want For Christmas

…is for WP to make the links in my admin page go to the article itself rather than to the edit page.  Sometimes, I just want to read the page.  I know it’s a little early for Xmas presents, but I figure if I get my request in now, they have time to get this glitch fixed by the holidays, right?

Seriously tho – who is diving into NaNoWriMo this year??  Two weeks left!  Eeep!  In typical ‘me’ style, I scrapped my nicely-planned-out-since-August outline in favour of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants epicish high fantasy.  What was I thinking?  I blame the distinct lack of coffee in my blood stream of the past few weeks.  I cannot brain without my caffeine.

I think this story will be great fun – and that’s what NaNo is all about.  The characters are from an old story, so I don’t really need to do much, if any, character development on them.  It is all world building and scene descriptions.  I have never written high fantasy before (urban/dark fantasy is my usual genre), and so far I am loving the freedom to do what I please without having to care about silly things like physics (pfft, who needs it?).  We’ll see if I still feel that way mid-November.

My NaNo profile is HERE if you want to be my writing buddy.  And new for this year, I am going to try to tweet my progress every couple of days – I could say I will definitely tweet everyday, but then I would fall face first off the wagon because I suck at follow through.  If you don’t already follow me on twitter and want to watch the crazy live, you can find me @dreacros.

If you’ve ever wanted to get into writing, but didn’t know how, NaNo is the way to do.  Dive in!  It doesn’t have to be good.  It doesn’t have to be polished.  It just has to be out of your head and on the paper (or screen).  No one even needs to read it but you – and trust me, my first novel was definitely for my eyes only (serious stinkfest – but a learning experience, so it was worth it in the end).
