Notes on Now: NaNoWriMo and Other Timesinks

Currently Reading (In Search of Time: The Science of a Curious Dimension by Dan Falk):

IMAG0507I have NaNoWriMo coming up and it starts this Saturday. What with my birthday being this weekend and several social engagements that I’ve already committed to, this is going to make for a cramped month, but I’ve got to win again. My weekly calendar is getting cleared but for work and sleep. And I’m not sure about sleep.

This year, I plan to re-write the novel that I began last year. There are a lot of parts of it that did not come out quite as planned. It really needs a full revamp and I’m adding a lot of character building stuff. It runs backwards and forwards in time, going out from the present back to the main character’s childhood and forward to the inevitable climax. It is not an easy story to write, but there are parts of it that I’m really proud of and I’m not prepared to let it go any time soon. Hopefully I can finish it and sell it for, I dunno, like, billions.

Current Events (as of temporal position 10/26/2014):
РLeVar Burton read Go the Fuck to Sleep and it was awesome.
– Interesting article on William Burroughs and his addiction shaking, Parkinsons curing wonder drug.
