Wednesday I gave my persuasive speech about language revitalization. It went surprisingly well, and I got nothing but compliments. I'm finding it hard to believe that I'm actually a good public speaker. I've always been very quiet and introverted - not someone who enjoys being in the spotlight at all - and suddenly I'm not shaking uncontrollably and I'm somehow managing to appear confident and intelligent in front of a group of people. Huh.
I've been trying to get shit done all week so I could start out November with an empty schedule - perfect for NaNoWriMo. I'm not quite where I wanted to be, but whatever. I'll just have to do a little work over the weekend. No big deal.
NaNoWriMo starts in t-minus 10.5 hours! I'm actually really excited. My goal for November is to complete both last year's novel and the year before's novel. If all goes as planned, I should manage it. Don't be surprised if I begin posting more frequently throughout November - I like to keep in touch with my fellow NaNoNerds and also keep track of my own progress. Anyone else doing it this year?
