I've had an idea for a novel rattling around for a while, but with work, child, life and all the other usual reasons-slash-excuses just can't seem to get off my duff and get the thing actually started.
But November is Nation Novel Writing Month and this time I'll be in the race.
Today is Oct. 31, so it starts tomorrow. I'm of course deeply concerned I'm about to make a huge—huger?—jackass of myself, but so be it.
This is the time! There shall be writing, or at least typing.
See you on Nov. 30 with fingers worn down to nubs and hopefully a good first stab at a novel.
