Ready, set, NaNoWriMo!

Ah, autumn, the time when aspiring novelists turn towards that beacon of self-discipline, NaNoWriMo.org. See, November is National Novel Writing Month, and thousands celebrate by trying to write a 50,000 (175 page) novel in 30 days. All participants who mangage this feat are considered winners and can get T-shirts commemmorating it.

Last year I got a late start and didn't really have an idea of where I wanted to head, so I think I managed about 7000 words. :( But it was still fun. :) This year I've already got a decent idea in mind that I think I'll be able to outline quickly and coherently and then just start writing. So stay tuned.
