I am soooooo not freakin’ ready for National Novel Writing Month.

Yeah… that’s all.  lol

Okay, not really.

This will be the first year that I “officially” participate, which almost assures that I won’t reach the goal.  This is also the first year that I try to write a novel while focusing on a lot of other things, including running for a national office in Alpha Phi Omega, finding full-time work, getting more photography clients, developing a client base for my consultancy, and you know, just basically trying to pay rent.

I think I owe it to myself and the people who enjoy my work to make sure that I consider myself a novelist first.  A novelist who happens to have to do other things to pay the bills.  Mentally, I am okay with that designation.  And I am okay with struggling for a while until I reach my ultimate goal.

It’s still scary, though.
