Spent today walking around Edinburgh. Check out the photos!
I want to say, "It's finally the weekend again," but of course there isn't much difference between weekdays and weekends for me at the moment, so I'll say instead, "It's finally one day closer to payday again". As mercenary as that might sound, it is really what I'm waiting for -- payday means we're back on track, closer to the world-wise travelling lifestyle I yearn for (well, once the debts are paid off!!). Get there eventually, I guess.
In the meantime, I'm writing! I've signed up for NaNoWriMo -- the National Novel Writing Month -- which means I'll be writing (or attempting to write) a 50,000 word novel throughout November. I still don't know what I'll be writing about, not even the type or genre of the book, but it's something that I really want to do.
It's been running for a couple of years now, as I understand it. There's no real prize, just the satisfaction, and it's completely focused on quantity rather than quality -- I can just write 50,000 words of complete bollocks and I'll still get the little GIF or PNG "I completed NaNoWriMo '05" badge. But people from all over the world do it, and some even get published down the track so I live in eternal hope. (There is a matched NaNoEdMo -- editing your novel -- early next year.)
Anyway, I've got until just after midnight on the morning of the 1st to come up with a plot. And characters. And a title, I guess. Oh, I'm in way over my head!!
