I didn't really do anything special; actually, because of my backwards sleeping schedule, and the fact that I worked last night and tonight, I spent most of the actual day asleep. Ehehe. I'm hoping to hear about my friend Janelle soon, too. Her due date was something like the 18th of November, if I remember correctly, but she was really huge and they were going to induce her today. So, she's probably already had her baby, or will be soon. Exciting!
I'm still behind on my goal for NaNoWriMo, but I'm starting to make headway now, I think. Part of me still kind of wants to scrap what I'm writing now and just start a fanfic, though. I think I'm finding it more of a challenge to get a feel for personalities of characters, etc, since they are new to me, while in fanfic there is that kind of safety net of having a lot of the groundwork already developed. Last time I did NaNoWriMo, I seriously did absolutely no planning, on purpose; I had it in my mind to do as a kind of experiment, coming in with nothing and just seeing where it led me. This year, I had a vague beginning point, an idea of where to start, but no real plot to speak of. Oddly, I'm finding it a little harder this year, or maybe it just seems that way. So far, I have one POV character this year, while before I had several and jumped between them from chapter to chapter, so maybe that has something to do with it? I dunno. I'll just have to keep going with it and see where it goes, I guess. If it still seems a big struggle after a few more days, I'll probably just start writing something different.
