So, two and a half hours to go. That's REALLY NOT THAT MUCH TIME. I'm freaking out. I'm having flashbacks to freshman year (my first NaNo) when I couldn't sit still and I had so much energy that I just wanted to run up and down the hall and yell and make a ruckus. I also had major butterflies (a combo of nervous and excited) and I actually felt like I was going to have a heart attack, because my chest was so tight and I couldn't breathe.

Okay, so it's not that extreme right now, but I definitely have butterflies and sometimes it's hard to catch my breath. I really don't know why I'm so excited, but it probably has something to do with the fact that this is a brand new novel. New characters, new stories, new adventures. I've only known about this story for a few weeks, so there are still plenty of things left open-ended, and it's frightening and amazing all at once.

Eeeeek. I still need to finish my Russian essay so I don't have to worry about that this weekend. And then I need to find ways to distract myself so I a) don't start early by accident, or b) have a major NaNo-related breakdown because I suddenly realize that my story is complete crap and needs to be rewritten from scratch.
