I've been pondering this for a while, what with that reading list this semester (~ 4000 pages, to be found here ) and all the other things I have to do. Now I have come to a decision - I will be attempting NaNo once again.
I have not decided on a project yet, though. I feel like I want to continue with TdM, but I also have ideas for a collection of short stories in Romantic style.
Mind that I only use that term in its literary history-sense, that is, denoting a certain literary period which, with regard to German literature at least, comprises philosophical musings, fairytales, fantastic escapism and scholarly research into the Middle Ages (among other things) written between ~ 1790 and 1848. Roughly.

What I certainly won't do: Smut, fan fiction, romance, horror, ninjas, zombies. (I won't exclude vampires just yet...) Yes, I am that weird.

Sometimes, when I have a lot of free time at hand, I get bored with myself very easily, and instead of spending that treasured bit of free time on something useful, I stay on the internet far too long and wait for something to happen. Which it doesn't.
I need to get a grip on myself.

I have just been busy - which you might have guessed, especially since the new semester started last week. And I will be even more busy in the weeks to come, with an election for one of our history professorships (I'm in the election committee, this means a lot of reading, besides other things), debating and my Greek exam coming along all too soon.
And from tomorrow to Sunday [ profile] rhuna and me will be attending the Tolkien Seminar in Jena which I have been looking forward to and obsessing about since February at least (here, and here on my German blog).
Also planned: to post my timetable (the html-code is not yet finished...), to catch up with all my friends' journals (don't worry, I have not forgotten you), finish a number of books, update at mission101, and much more...

Reading: Tad Williams' Otherland. Oh, so much intertextuality. And plot! And characters! And dystopia! And prediction!

Ideas/Plans: Jena, reading up on Romanticism, Philosophy, my seminars next semester (yay for Historic Novels!)
Pages: The Hermitage , Every day, one good thing, Hello Mr Fox
Blogging: posting random lists of things, slowly dragging out all my childhood/early adulthood inspirations

And I've even written 600 words today.
