Oh my god, I'm reading through old LJ posts and going "OH MY GOD I'M SO HILARIOUS WHY DO I NOT UPDATE LJ REGULARLY ANYMORE" and the answer is because I have grown accustomed to the widespread connectivity and immediacy of Facebook. Something I swore I would never do. AT LEAST IT ISN'T MYSPACE. I still feel like a jerk who is neglecting my roots, however.

So I'm reading old LJ posts because NaNoWriMo is coming up and you are never in a million years going to believe me when I say this, but I am actually SORT OF PLANNING WHAT TO WRITE THIS YEAR. It's also sort of non-fiction. And when I say "sort of non-fiction" I mean pretty much entirely non-fiction, but I am giving myself the option to be liberal with fudging details for the sake of story so that I don't feel too much like I'm breaking the "rules" of NaNo by writing non-fiction. Given, however, that this is my ninth NaNo and I've never before had an actual idea for a book with a beginning, middle and end that I actually WANTED to write, I'm letting myself be loose with the rules and NaNo at my whimsy.

I also need to remember to friggen' mail in my Alphasmart to get fixed because I STILL HAVEN'T DONE THAT, and at this point it's been so long since I even turned my baby on that the batteries have done the thing where they get all residue-y and whatnot and that just isn't okay. I really want to NaNo on my Alphasmart this year.

There are other things going on in life right now, but NaNo seems the most relevant to LJ, given it's a tried and true LJ topic. Perhaps I'll get around to updating about the other stuff at some point. If I keep updating.
