I Might Be Nuts.

I did something crazy yesterday. Before you jump to conclusions (and I know some of you who will!), I did not get Dumbledore's face tramp stamped to my back. Instead, in a sleep-deprived, study-crazy, crack-addled(jk) fit of madness, I signed up for NaNoWriMo. November is National Novel Writing Month...and as of last night, I'm doing it!

I realize it's a big commitment, but hey, they don't even judge me (though you guys probably will) if I don't finish the 50,000 words (yeah, that's 1667/day...about 3 pages)! I've always got weird stories going on in my head anyway, so I figured, to hell with college biology classes and midterms! I'm going to write fiction! They also don't expect it to be any kind of quality work. You know what that means? I could almost literally ramble 50,000 words, and few would judge me! Well, I would judge me...which is exactly why I have a plot developing (slowly...) in my head. It was all I could do to pay attention to the exams in front of me today.

If my writing space looked half as nice as this, I probably wouldn't get anything remotely productive done in it.

I will, hopefully, keep you guys updated on my progress, but I'm sort of shy about my stories. I'll be trying to fix that. Wish me luck!
