Two upcoming things that are occupying mental real estate today:
1. The race tomorrow. The SIX HOUR race tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it but also getting a little nervous. I’m 100% sure that I will come in last among the small group of people doing the six hour race (there are about 30 people signed up all together but most are doing the 24 hour race. I think there are maybe ten doing the six hour version) and I’m okay with that. Tonight we go have a pre-race dinner with some of the other people signed up and I am very curious to meet/see them. I am also 100% sure I’ll be the biggest person in the race and I am trying to be okay with that and not to feel overly self-conscious of my utterly un-gazelle like self. Tune in on Monday for a full race report!
2. NaNoWriMo starts on Monday and that means that I’ve committed myself to writing 1,666 words per day every day in November. This blog does not count in those 1,666 words so I’ve got a lot of writing to do. I have a story idea brewing so I think starting NaNoWriMo will be easy but I expect I’ll have some difficulty just writing and not editing during the month. Mr. Monkey is also doing it so I’ll be curious to see how it goes for him as well. I hope he lets me read his stuff when he is done. I love his writing.
