Oh my god...

Tonight, at midnight, novel writing month begins. Gulp.

Good thing I wangled a week off for myself out of the job change. I fear I will need it. If things move along as I expect them to, I'll be hitting that horrible midpoint where I always bog down right about that time.

Outline ready. For as much good as it will do. Cast of characters filled out, in the main. Now if only the details will arrive on schedule...

I can't believe I'm really going to do this. Do you suppose the reams I'll have to write to transition my projects over to the successors and management will count in a pinch?

And yes, mintwitch, I am going to use my little Excel spreadsheet in which to type the novel as it comes.
