So fellow bloggers, November is National Novel Writing Month (often shortened to NaNoWriMo). Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you probably are very familiar with this annual, Internet-based creative writing project.

Word counts are validated on the site, with writers submitting a copy of their novel for automatic counting.

I begin to slowly drift off into the wonderful world of distractions and shiny babbles.
But I figured, “What the hell could it hurt?” It will only cost me a little self-esteem and some confidence. I mean, it’s not like I haven’t lived all my life without them anyway. Who knows, maybe I can get it ticked off my bucket list. So wish me luck and here goes…
