I've been pushing my estimated start date back as it looks like I just won't be ready. New estimated start date is May 15th. However, I've decided to give myself a deadline of June 20th, the summer solstice here, to be the latest estimated start date I'll be allowed to make. Not that I think I'm pushing it back for the wrong reasons, but I could use the extra little threat to keep myself working hard.

Writing friends

KazNo may have been a bust, but through it I made a writing friend in Jani.Between doing some beta work for Jani and hitting the gym hard, I haven't spent toooo much of my free time on the outline between yesterday and today, but now that Jani is set for the moment, it's back to the outline for me. One thing that's been inspiring me to outline is this post by Rachel Aaron, who is very much in the plotter camp. I'm taking some advice from her method, and between that and the awesome features of Scrivener, my writing process is evolving into something that should work well for me.

Joke's on me maybe!

It's April 2nd and I'm not writing yet, I've still got so much I want to plan out. I decided a while ago that outlining was how I was going to write this one, so if I stop outlining now and dive in I'll probably be repeating the past instead of making progress. I think I might revise my goal to: finish outline in April and be ready to write on May 1st. It's not as fun as being able to write with a bunch of other people for Karen Mahoney's KazNo, but I think it may be the right call.
