"Write what you know"

I signed up for NaNoWriMo.

So far, it's not going so well. I'm supposed to crank out 50,000 words in 30 days and I think I've got just under 400 on the second full day. Gah.

I know no one's going to come steal my babies if I don't get it done, but I'll still feel like a failure if I can't get at least half the required words in. It's supposed to be fun, right?

Anyone else trying masochism on for size this month?

I considered doing this last year. In the end, I gave up because I suck at writing fiction.

So, what's your word count? I'm still under 2,000.

Michael: Apparently, I do too.

BSUWG: I haven't done shit since the 1st. I think I might scrap what I have and start over.

My novel contains many illustrations.

OHMYGOD. How many times have I tried this, let me count the ways.

In fact, one year Dale bought me the t-shirt!

Good luck!

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
