Today's gnome, "Scintellshine," is brought to you by Anika S.--she's a very fitting gnome for this time of year!
I am now one month away from the last deadline in my three-book non-stop crunch-a-thon. Book 1 (48-page picture book) was finished in May. Book 2 (120 page graphic novel) was finished in July. And book 3 (another 120 page graphic novel) is due in 31 days. I've got 80 pages to go. 168 down, 80 to go. As soon as the gnomes are all finished, I think I'm going to focus on the page-count on the blog. We'll figure out some sort of day-by-day blog game to keep me motivated and on track.
My stopwatch trick doesn't work anymore. I need a new mind-game, a new trick. I think if I can incorporate the blog, maybe that will give me a boost. We'll see.
