Fired Up!!!

Oh yeah. *grins*
That's me.

I signed up for NaNoWriMo. And I feel goooooooooooood. I've had this four-book series floating around in my head for the past couple of weeks or so. Now is the TIME! I feel it. So I girded (is that a word?) my literary loins and signed right up. There is no backing down. I have committed. And I should be committed. *grins*
November, however, is a pretty good month for me to try and bang out over 50,000 words. That's only slightly over half what I would like the finished product to be, but it sounds absolutely wonderful. This is just the kick in the ass I was looking for.
I am in immersion mode. Researching my characters. Getting a feel for my lovelies. Making nice, so to speak. :)~~
I've also come to realize I'm not Superwoman. Isn't that tragic?
Here I was multi-tasking to beat the band. Making sacrifice upon sacrifice. Grinning and bearing it.
You heard me.
My body's all tense, and I'm betting it's because of the whole "super mode" issue. So my goal, also, this November is to take what I need for myself.
God. Isn't that the hardest? Especially for a Mom. I need to dial down the uber efficiency and realize that I have three children who are more than capable of doing dishes or sweeping a floor. And they do. Don't get me wrong. I simply feel like I have to pick up the slack. So. Obviously I should simply say... SCREW YOU, SLACK!!! You evil malignant guilt trip ass! You've fucked with me for the last time.
*doing a victory dance*
Updates to come.

I'm going to do it too, but haven't signed up yet so thanks for the reminder.

Girded is way better than girdered, which I'd like to see.

I've signed up for NaNo, too. I did it last year and had a blast with it.
And I totally get what you're saying about taking what you need for yourself. I'm a single mom of of which is an overly hormonal tweenie. Help. Me. :) Grrl, feel blessed that your kids help out. I'm not quite sure if my daughter knows how to hold a broom! *snort*

Lyvvie: And here I thought that was some kinky obscure Scottish reference. *grins* Silly me.
Kimber: I've added you to my sidebar and my whatever the blazes it's called when my blog says when your blog updates. Yeah. That. LOL

Good for you. I'll be right there with you. I just added you to my buddy list.

And I know what you mean about taking the time. November is my busiest month but I've done it before and I feel certain I can do it again.
