Yet another reason why I am an idiot

I've decided to give NaNoWriMo a shot.

Problem is, I'm gonna kick myself in the ass if I don't make the deadline. Stupid high opinions of one's abilities....

On the other hand, though, I'm already at the 1/5th mark, so I can't be doing too badly. Although I am really concerned about what is going to happen when I run out of ideas. I'm estimating that this will happen at around 25,000 words.

Just keep ripping those bodices, baby.

Of course, if you run out of ideas, just make the heroine discover some horrible secret about the hero, and have her run off in a fit of spazzes, requiring him to come chasing after her, or her after him, to discover he has reconciled with his ex-fiancee, and she runs off, then he tracks her down to a deserted tropical beach and punches out her date, sweeping her off into the sunset.

Or you could just put in an all-singing all-dancing musical scene. They pad out well. Though it might be tough without the audio and visual.
