I went to IR12 and didn’t present, which was liberating. Had lots of fun, hurt my brain in new and creative ways as always.

I’m really pushing to finish. And I’m doing Ac(ademic) Bo(ok) Wri(ting) Month, which is a spin on NaNoWriMo. It’s good for me because getting started writing is always the hardest thing. I always get frustrated because my first drafts are utter crap (my husband is right at this very minute handing me a pretend phone and saying that the kettle is calling because whenever he laments having to start writing something I tell him to just get the first draft down and fix it in editing…) but once I get the first round of thoughts out I can turn it into things that are actually coherent, not to mention realizing where the holes and things are. The goal I’ve set myself is 30000 words this month, which is four chapters of 7500 words each (I picked 7500 because that’s the word limit on a journal submission that is top priority right now). So far… I’m not doing all that well, actually, because I keep getting distracted by data analysis.

AcBoWriMo Progress 11/11/11But it’s way more words than I’d written in the previous month, so I’ll take what I can get!
