The Heretic Writes….a lot! (#NaNoWriMo) and Moving Update

I am currently sitting in my new office, aka TWIH Headquarters, with my computer and sound system set up. The wife is in the other room on her computer doing some work. I have my podcasting equipment partially set up, although it needs a few tweaks to make it work right. I have a phone meeting shortly about an interfaith service that’s happening this month.

Life keeps going forward despite the upheaval of moving house.

Tomorrow is our last round of hired moving help. The cleaner’s clean the old house early Friday morning. After that, we will officially be done with the place.

There are boxes everywhere. The kitties are happy and curious, liking the fact that they now have many windows to look out of and towers of boxes to sleep on.

We have one frying pan because the movers didn’t move our kitchen gear in the first round. But, I was able to make our first breakfast this morning (that wasn’t a Cliff bar) and make the wife her coffee. Tea kettle and tea is packed somewhere, which was kind of sad, but I can live without tea until everything gets here.

In a few more days, though, it’ll be November, with a whole new project for me. I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year: 50,000 written words in 30 days. It’s a little bit of an intimidating goal, but I want to do it. I want to write this novel that I’ve been batting around in my head for the last year or so. I think some of the intimidation of the goal is that I tend to get caught up in telling myself that my words are meaningless, or that I’m boring, or the story is stupid. I know I’m not the only one to feel that way when writing, and I know that it also stems from a lot of old tapes, but it’s there, and it’s real, so I try to accept that while still pushing ahead.

But I will do this. I want to write and finish this novel!!

(Any support, cheerleading, prayers, etc for me while I embark on this crazy endeavor would be greatly appreciated! 🙂 )

Oh, and this week’s TWIH will be a special Samhain edition! Mage of Machines and I hope you enjoy it!
