50,000 words in 30 days: the NaNoWriMo challenge

National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo, as we call it around here) starts today! Are you Wri-ing a No this Mo?

I am (maybe). Now some people whinge about not having enough time because they're in college (you will probably never have more free time in your life ever) or work a full time job. I am not trying to make excuses for myself, but my full time at one job plus part time at another job plus looking for a new job plus my volunteer and marriage commitments may not leave a lot of spare minutes left for writing. Of course, it can still be done; you can always make time for something if you want it badly enough. I just have to want it more. And I'm not sure if I can do that this year.

Today, I'll start writing something and see what happens. I already know what can be done. This could be just the kick I need to break out of my writing rut.

I am. You peer-pressured me into it. Where were you at the kickoff? I didn't see any bike-rider-lookin' fellas there, other than Nate, who was on the receiving end of WAY more peer pressure than I ever was. I'm just a sucker that way; he had to be bribed. But he's doin' it too. Unfortunately, work picked today to explode, so I haven't had any spare moments to start yet. It will happen though. Oh yes, it surely will.
