I hate when he's right

Craig finally gave me a bit of a lecture last night. Not that he's unsupportive of my insane venture to NaNoWriMo, but that I'm doing that kind of irritating thing I do when I get into a project: I become singleminded.

But that wasn't his lecture. He told me to stop with the research and start with the fiction. A good point, but not easy for me, as research is pretty much my favorite activity in the whole world.

So I did what he said, a bit begrudgingly, and the next thing I knew, it was an hour later and I'd written 1,000 words, introduced a new character, and realized that I was having fun!

There's still research to do, but I've realized that I can do a lot of writing without it. If I can get to the 50,000 mark with some large blanks in the story, like there are now, I can leave the research for later, when I'm editing.

Thanks, honey. I'll admit you were right. Especially here, because you never read it.

Great job! I like the research best too. :) That's why I went crazy and picked up a second major in my senior year! LOL!
