And I am doing this crazy thing. The 3-Day Novel contest. Yep, I’m going to attempt to write a novel this labour day weekend. Oh, and they have a handy survival guide, the first recommendation of which says:
“You should, as presumably you would for any marathon, be healthy physically. This includes being free from common colds, active allergies or even healing bones that are painful.”
Since I have both a common cold, and a healing bone, I should be just shit out of luck. Regardless, I’m giving it a go.
I am gathering my supplies today, probably some cheetos, granola bars, lots of coffee. I’m making some lists, gathering some research material (on what, who the hells knows?) and re-reading Bird by Bird. I re-read On Writing the other day.
Wish me luck.
