Okay, so this is my thought about NaNoWriMo. Finishing the rewrites on Urban Shaman is *way* higher in priority, particularly as I’m not doing NaNoWriMo for the purposes of Writing A Novel. I’ve done that several times. The purpose of me doing NaNoWriMo is to enter a contest which closes on Dec. 31; if I succeed in that, I’ll be delighted. If I don’t, I’m not going to be crushed. I’d *like* to, but I’ve *got* to finish the US rewrites.
So this is my plan: I’m going to work on US on weeknights, and do NaNoWriMo writing on weekends. In order to actually accomplish the 50K words in a month that NaNoWriMo aims for, I’ll have to write something on the order of 6K words a day each of the weekend days of November, and that would be . . . stupendous.
If I do this, I will be a gibbering fool in December.
But anyway, that’s the idea, at least. I’ll manage it or I won’t, but I _will_ finish Urban Shaman. _That’ll_ only take a _rewrite_ of one chapter a night, which is, okay, still a lot, but it’s a whole buggering lot less than writing a five fresh new chapters a day.
Right now, though, I should go work on Kitlings and wait for trick-or-treaters.
