And it also means that there are only 8:14:8:21 until NaNoWriMo begins.
On the BRIGHT SIDE, I finished the outline for my story, which means I actually have a working road map for this novel. That's more than I can say for my novel last year: I spent all year studying instead of writing a workable outline. This year, I mostly skipped researching and just went straight to the outlining stage. Since it's a mystery, I just killed off all the victims with the plants I learned about in botnay.
So, YAY. MAYBE I'll live! And win! But for now... I think I'll just go crazy with stress. :P
