It was a dark and spooky Halloween on Friday October 31, 2008.  I was home alone.  All the lights in the house were turned off (you know cause we are suffering from global warming and one should do all they can to conserve energy; not to mention the economy sucks and one never knows if one will have enough money to cover the electric bill next month) I am tucked in bed with my laptop.  I am perusing my Google Reader.  One of my favortie RSS feeds comes from Quiet Rebel Writer.  In her post Creative Link Love and a QRW recap she happened to mention NaNoWriMo.  Since I did not know what that was, I had to investigate further.  Truns out NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month.  Also turns out it is quite a popular project/challenge.  The concept is to write 50,000 words in 30 days.  The 30 days being the whole month of November.  Now, I do not know what possed me.  It probably has to do with the fact that I spent all of October reading Cristina Favreau’s blog about anti-procrastination.  Something came over me and I entered the contest.  I can hear Dr. Phil saying “WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!?!” I dunno Dr. Phi.  I think the spirits possed me.

This is completely impromtu.  I have no outline.  I have no predefind characters.  I am starting with a completely blank page.  I am going to see where this little adventure takes me.  Here is my profile if you want to check me out.

I am sending out productivity vibes to all the NaNoWriMo participants.  Good luck!
