46 Days: The power of a good outline

I have procrastinated to the end...I need to mail my story out to Charlie and George on Tuesday morning, which leaves me tonight to write and tomorrow night to proofread and make sure I didn't fuck it up.

I spent the day working on Nanowrimo, reading The Shining, watching football and paying attention to Gatsby. I finally decided, at 6:30, that I needed an outline.

I outlined my story as it is, while throwing in the scenes that have been floating aimlessly around in my mind for the past two weeks. I trusted myself to remember the major problems people had raised and worked to address them in the outline.

After the Simpsons halloween special I will commense with the revision.

Here I go.......
