I am writing like mad trying to finish Brimstone by end of day tomorrow. It was all going well until I had an epiphany about the scandal scene that has been giving me endless grief. I finally figured it out. Which is great. But it means a rather extensive rewrite of that scene, changing it completely, and then trying to seamlessly fit it back into the story.
But I am writing on my lunch hours and trying to find every pocket of time I can to get this finished. I am almost there. Things aren't looking too bad yet. I haven't hit the panic button. Maybe tomorrow, but not yet.
I have figured out a tentative schedule that will hopefully work for next month.
Nov 1 - 12: Write like a mad woman on my NaNo story getting as much done as humanly possible.
Nov 12 - 26: Write in the morning cleaning up the final edits of Brimstone once I get it back from my CPs and write NaNo during lunch hours and evenings.
Nov 26 - 30: Write like a madwoman to finish NaNo story.
That's the plan. Let's hope it pans out. Stay tuned for regular updates on the insanity as it progresses over at Creative Insanity - NaNo 2007. That's where me and my RWAC buddies will be blogging as we lose our minds to NaNo.
