MaNoWriMo is turning out to be more fun than I thought it would be. Sure, it can be challenging to face a blank page and realize you have to fill it with — gulp — about 1600 words, if not more, but then I get engrossed in the story again and think, oh, this is actually fun.
I’m within days of the big scene, i.e., the Japanese invasion and subsequent capture of Singapore. I’m approaching it with not a little trepidation since my knowledge of the incident is still rather primitive, but at the same time I’m relieved that I can get into the really meaty parts of the story already after waiting for…two freakin’ years.
You know, I didn’t really realize how focused I get when I’m writing this thing until a few moments ago when someone honked their car horn just outside my office window. I swear, I think my heart stopped for a few seconds.
