Big Plans

I have two big goals for the upcoming months.

For November, I am doing NaNoWriMo. For those of you who have never heard of it, the idea is that you have to write a 50,000+ word novel in a month. It is very likely that I will fall flat on my face. Still, in choosing which idea to pursue, I have learned one reason why I often fail at my goals. I have too much ambition. There are so many stories and books I want to write, so many sites I want to create, and so many that I create these big sprawling universes that take up the space in my head that I can't get it out. It frustrates me very often that I have more time than most people and yet I make no progress. So for this challenge, I am going to take one of my old and bad (I *know* it's very bad) ideas and work toward it, instead of something I desperately want to get done. If I can churn out a cliche-filled, hole-ridden, horribly unrealistic novel in a month, perhaps I can make some side income writing romance novels. ;)

For December, I'm going to try the 24 Days of Final Fantasy, something I know I can do. The reason why I had to suspend my campaign last year was because of a funeral I had to attend. Hopefully, no one from out of town will die this time, and I can do this. In addition, I also have a special plan in mind, but the problem is I will have to gather the materials to do it.

So if I'm not around much, it's because I trying my hand at both of the above goals. I can only hope that some generous person will not surprise me with Final Fantasy XII until Christmas. I need every spare moment I can get.
