Because it’s fun to say, that’s why

NaNoWriMo is here.  That’s National Novel Writing Month for those who aren’t hip to the lingo.

Starting November first some masochistic bastard has challenged the helpless writers of the world to write a novel in one month.  I can’t quite track down who started this insanity, but it’s been happening every year for ten years now and it sounds like a lot of fun.

I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to give it a crack.  I kind of like to set my own bizarre writing deadlines but their website is rather snappy and has things like little bars that fill up to indicate your rising word count and I can win a badge plus just try and say NaNoWriMo without smiling so…I’m on the fence.  I’m not sure I have the time for this right now.  On the other hand, it’s a novel in one month.  Nobody has the time for that.  Ever.

I might come back to this.
