Hopping on the plane in less than 12 hours. Thinking about allegories and such, and other things for my other blog. It's a good thing I plan to blog more next year.

Working and reworking the laws of love in my head.

Wonder when I'll actually finish it.

I have decided that on January 1st, I'll set some kind of writing goal for myself.

A doable type goal. Maybe a scene a week. I was originally going for a scene a day, but then I thought about it some more and decided it might make me want to kill myself. I've done that enough times that you'd think I would have learnt a long time ago, but apparently on top of being stoopid, I am also extremely stubborn.

The point is, though, that if there's one thing I've learnt this year, it's that writing isn't like economics for me.

I can't just sit and work and work and work. I am perfectly working for 12 hour stretches at my studies with just short breaks for food and drink, and I can do this for days on end. Negative marginal returns don't set in until, maybe, the tenth hour.

With writing, it sets in much earlier. I don’t even want to estimate how early because it would just be depressing.

Shock treatments a la NaNoWriMo haven’t worked for me. Talk about burnout. Screaming and crying burnout.

So no. Never again.
