Tonight is the Rochester Area NaNoWriMo Kickoff Party. I'm planning on going, if I don't chicken out at the last minute. I might know one other person who is going, but that will be it. What am I thinking?
I guess I'm thinking it would be a nice opportunity to meet some new people, to connect with some local writers, and to garner some enthusiasm and support before jumping into NaNo on Saturday. The local ML (municipal liason) is putting together some info/fun packets for those who come, and also planning some 'write-ins' for November where we can meet together to write and encourage each other when things get tough.
I'm excited and afraid all at once. Is this normal? Am I such a fraidy cat that I won't go spend an hour at a coffee shop with strangers who also like to write? Guess I'll find out the answer to that tomorrow.
Have you ever been scared to do something you thought you wanted to do? That feeling of anxious anticipation colors a lot of things I think I'd like to try. Gimme a shout if you've ever felt that way. I'd like to kn0w I'm not alone in my weirdness.
Oh, and I didn't forget the Wed WI. Due to the blog tour, I didn't post it this week. Suffice it to say, there wasn't any news to report. :( Still, staying even = not going up.
If it ain't salad, I'm not eating it this week. Sigh. And I'm logging more miles on the stationary bike. At least I can read and ride. I can't seem to read and walk on the treadmill. So I have to settle for watching TV. :)
