wmao, close cousin to nano

So, I've been remiss in my blogging, and I apologize for that. Only, not much of any note has been going on except craziness at work, which is really not the stuff of compelling bloggage.

Otherwise, my only exciting news is that I've declared this weekend WMAO (Write My *ss Off) Weekend.

See, I've finally found a true impetus for me to get a draft of my novel written: there is a writer's conference in Big Sur, California at the beginning of December that I would love to attend, but one has to have two full chapters to submit by November 16th.

(It also costs $600, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there...)

I had already planned to participate in NaNoWriMo this year to try to pound out a manuscript, but I would like to have the first few chapters polished a bit beyond a first draft before sending them out, so I'm going to sit my rapidly expanding booty into a chair this weekend and just WORK. That's my goal. Going grocery shopping tonight to stock up on the essentials: chocolate, wine, easy-to-prepare foods, and all the ingredients for baking cookies when I'm procrastinating.

So send me all your best positive writing vibes for the weekend! And I'll try to have something more interesting to say in the near future.

chocolate and wine, very writer-y, how can you *not* produce compelling drama with that for fuel?
