I've been saying for a long time now that my Epic Disaster of a fan fiction has become what my dissertation once was.  If nothing else, that means I'll finish it. Eventually. 

I write a lot, and I still work on my story most days--even if it's just a little bit or something that's going to happen in the future.  My problems seem to be focusing on the next chapter and managing my time. 

So instead of starting a new story for the month of November, I am going to be using the NaNoWriMo daily writing goals to push forward on my current story.  To do this, I am going to be rearranging my sleep and work schedule so that I am up very early on work days, which will give me more writing time at night. I'm not sure why, but I am much less inclined to waste time on the Tumblr at 5:30AM than I am at 9PM. I think it's because the only thing that really offsets the sheer pain of being up that early is focusing all my energy on editing or correcting papers.

 So, I've got myself a little word counter on my main story blog and starting tomorrow I'm going to log all the words I type.  I'm also going to do enough editing to publish chapters as I finish them.  This is so far beyond the point of NaNoWriMo, but I think it's exactly what I need to. And if it works out well, I may just stick to that work/writing schedule indefinitely.
