Before I get too drunk and forget

Just wanted to say thank you to those of y'all that message me and are super supportive of my life decisions. It means a lot to me when y'all wish me luck and give me advice about shit. So spanks. 🤙🏼

Hi Kelly Sue! I've had a novel floating in my head since I was 18 (26 now) and after 8 years of research, "research", outlining and "outlining", I've set Nov. 1st as my personal deadline for starting. Can you wish me luck/give me advice/give me hell if I don't commit? (P.S. I've written other stuff between then and now, just to be clear.)

The first step to finishing is to start.  

I don’t think you should start November 1st, though. I think you should start today. You’ve got 8 years of research and an outline?  What are you waiting for?  Afraid you’re going to get docked points for NaNoWriMo (NaNoMo? WTFever.)

Create a document. Write the first sentence. 

C'mon, fuck it – just do it right now.
