Update on the novel-front: I have officially decided to cut the Mexico scene(s). I just couldn't figure out how to make it all work. Maybe Quezacoatl and Pralambasura will come back to play in NaNo 2007. Or, uh, preferably not. Fuckin' fantasy... stupid genre... mkjsdfhm.

In other news, I now know how to make my novel work really, really well. As in, I put miscellaneous shit in early just because it sounded good, and now it's all actually going to work. This is due to a nice, long discussion with The Best Person In The World. True story.

I wrote that hours ago, and I haven't actually written a word today. Oh well. I did manage to write a very nice paper for French in just 1.5 hours (3 pages long), so hopefully that'll make up for it. My intention this year is pretty much just to catch up over Sucksgiving Break. I'll be in a string of motel rooms for several days straight, with next to nothing to do but write and steadily grow crazier and crazier, so I think that will be a good time to catch up on my word count. Not to mention--I've been writing after 8pm every single night. What would happen if I began writing at, say, 3pm? Hmm. I'll try to get back on track starting tomorrow.

Anton is, of course, the soul reason I am writing this year.

(I actually have a character who will resemble an aged version of him. !)

haha, don't worry, i've already begun writing your scene. it's not actually done, and it will probably be revised a LOT, but i've begun it.

what are some Indian names you like? your unofficial story-name is Priya, but that can always change... (the character will resemble you, but she just won't have the same name. :P)

Priya is a good name... I actually like that name so it works.
