I want to remind everyone that today is the first day of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I love NaNoWriMo, because it forces quantity not quality. The hardest part of writing a novel has to be actually doing it. I should know, because I've never written a novel even though I've started several in my mind.
If you've ever wanted to write a novel, but have been too tired/busy/scared to start, please check them out and consider participating. I'm still considering it. When I get back from DC today I'm going to have a good long heart-to-heart with myself, wherein I try to convince myself that I can do it.
Start here if you've never heard of NaNoWriMo, and haven't a clue what I'm yammering on about.
