I'm still alive, my novel didn't eat me, I promise.

I think I'm done, at 67k. There's a lot of editing to do, and I think I have one other scene to add before it's really done, but my story's been told, and my poor characters are exhausted. I'm writing a little short story with Em, Trout, and Nina - they're all going off on vacation on a different planet, in a tropical locale. I think they deserve it, poor guys. I'm still trying to decide whether or not to make Em polyamorous - she loves Trout, but she's got feelings for Nina as well. Ahhh, the drama. Poor Em. I've put her through so much in this novel - it's a wonder she still lets me write about her.

I'm sad that the story is over - while I enjoyed writing about the characters (and in Em's case, as the character) back when Pedro and I roleplayed back in 2001, I've grown very attached to them all after this novel. It's almost like they're human to me, and I don't want to leave them just yet.

I gave up waiting to put up my Christmas tree, and decided to put it up tonight. I'm ridiculous, I know, but I've been waiting to put this sucker up since I bought it at a garage sale in August for $5. I didn't quite realize just how HUGE this thing was - I went from a three foot tree to a seven and a half footer! I stuck my Princess Serenity doll on the top, instead of an angel or a star, and poor Serenity's head almost hits the ceiling. It was also a pain to put together - it was color coded, but I had no idea which colors went where. It was like putting together a puzzle that's only one color, and all the pieces are roughly the same shape. At least it came out relatively tree looking, even if it is listing to one side a little. Once my camera's battery charges, I'll post some pictures. It's a very eclectic tree - only on our Christmas tree will you find The Simpsons ornaments, Beauty and the Beast ornaments, Precious Moments ornaments, a sprinkling of tiny stuffed animals, and a Sailor Moon doll stuffed on the top.

I did a little bit of circle trimming today - mostly it was people who haven't updated in months (with the exception of [personal profile] nomnomchuupie, considering we're married and all that). If you're just lurking around DW, and don't post entries but still read mine, and you're sad I removed you, just let me know and I'll add you back. (Although, one person I removed hadn't updated in something like 78 weeks, so I doubt they're lurking.)

AUGH. I just looked at my tags. NaNoWriMo and Christmas tags shouldn't ever be used together. XD
