Where’d October Go?

Wow, October just kind of snuck by in the night, didn’t it? No? Just me?

With only 2 days ’til NaNoWriMo 2010 kicks off, I’m poised somewhere between excitement and dread.

On the one hand, I have pages of plans and outlined scenes written (47, to be precise), as well as character profiling and general writing prompts. I have my arsenal of writing software (‘Scrivener’, ‘Ommwriter’ and the ever-so-encouraging ‘Write or Die’). I have my new MacBook Pro, bought for the sole purpose of writing to my heart’s content, ready and waiting for my fingers to slam its keys into oblivion for 30 days straight.

On the other hand, I haven’t written anything for months, and I’m worried that I will not be able to maintain the momentum for 30 days, or worse, worried that I won’t want to.

It doesn’t help that NaNo starts on a Monday. Bleh.

I suppose it’s important to maintain a positive attitude, because I’m not at all self-defeatist.
