baseball - omar high-five


So I am totally cheating here and choosing my own topic to kick off daily posting in November -- I'll get started on other people's topics tomorrow, promise -- because THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS JUST WON THE FREAKING WORLD SERIES.

The city is still partying; I hear chanting and cheering and the occasional fireworks, not to mention the helicopters keeping an eye over it all. It's a glow that will last us a long time, I think, and already I can't wait for the home opener of the 2011 season, sometime in April, when announcer Renel Moon presents to us, for the first time "your World Champion San Fran-cisco GIANTS!" I can already feel the shivers traveling down my back, and I love every minute of it.

Specific goals:

1. Write at least 6 days per week. Surpassed!

2. COMPLETE DRAFT OF MEGA FLARE STORY OMG. For certain values of "complete", perhaps. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end, but there are still some gaps. Still, I think I'm on track to post it before the deadline.

3. Write and post the [community profile] intoabar story. Nope. Not even started. I got rolling on the Mega Flare and didn't want to stop.

Two hits, one miss. On to November goals...

1. Write at least 6 days per week.

2. Complete and post the Mega Flare story.

3. Write a substantial post every day, based on the "30 Days of Me" list of questions. There are still plenty of slots! Come check it out, and leave me a question or post topic, especially if you haven't already done so. Post your questions here (DW) or here (LJ).

4. Write and post [community profile] intoabar story. Hopefully I can do this while the Mega Flare in in beta. But if I miss it, not the end of the world; it just means I can't do the next round. Which I would feel bad about, but less bad than if I didn't finish Mega Flare or monthly posting. Priorities, you know.

I can't believe this year is almost over. Almost time to think about how I will tackle writing goals and projects in 2011. Damn.
