A month of no sleep in a seemingly useless and futile endeavor-but I did it!!!! I WIN!! MWAHAHAHA! I wrote a novel! A whole stinkin' novel! Yah-tah-tah-tah-tah-tah! *does one person conga line victory dance*



ok, I'm going to go sleep now. Godspeed Rowan and Mamoru, Midori and Tamotsu, Yuriko and Takeshi. I adore you all, my creations. *sniff*

They're all going to be okay. I know. But I'll still miss them.

I know I hit 50K tonight but I'm not doing a word count until it's all done.
I was reading up on concussions for the novel, and I was reminded of my own experiences.
I had a concussion (lost consciousness, don't remember exactly what happened, the whole nine yards) when I was nine or ten, I can't remember which. It was the year I went to camp at the western stable. I was overmounted. We were on a "cattle drive" I think, and the horse I was riding took off. I remember him vaguely lunging into a canter and yelling "whoa!" at him. The next thing I remember was coming to on the ground, curled up in a ball. I think I had a bloody nose.
The articles said that concussions are cumulative; in other words, the effects add up. In hindsight, my method of quote-unquote disciplining myself by smacking myself on the head with various thick books and my clarinet case probably was not a good idea.
In aikido this semester, I got tossed around a bit roughly and I got dizzy and nauseous. I grounded myself for a week, but now I wonder what effect all my head-banging has done to my poor brain. That scares me.
Right now, I need to go to bed more than I need to worry. One day at a time, that's all I can do.

I think some of my impetuous in writing is so I can create a nearly perfect guy. And I did. And damn, if I wasn't having him marry one of my main characters....No, it's okay. I still <3 him. Because he's still one of my characters. And he's still wonderful. Don't worry, he's almost done with college, and she'll finish her degree....once I write my last major event! Muahahahaha! I'm going on 45,000 words though...this thing's going to be bigger than I thought. How did I ever think I *couldn't* write 50K?!?

Damn. I think I'm addicted. What Who am I going to write about after I send Rowan, Mamoru, Tamotsu, Midori, Yuriko, and Takeshi off to live happily after all? They're like my...creations. I love them all, but once I get them to happy, there's probably not a whole lot I can do with them, since I'm writing mostly empirically. Even writing some of the upcoming scenes isn't going to be easy. Midori is actually an adaptation of a character I created in either middle or high school, and so that idea's more or less shot. Most fairy tales have been worked to death...argh.

Ah, I need to focus. And to write. Maybe one day I'll post the novel online, in its rough draft, with only a few minor corrections for continuity. Or maybe not. I'm not sure yet.

So, for those of you who don't know, I'm writing a novel. No, I'm not publishing it. No, I probably won't let you read it all. I'm going to post an excerpt, but you're warned, it's probably considered NSFW...
