I have decided to go ahead and do National Novel Writing Month this year. The novel I've been plotting out is at a point where I just need to sit down and bang out a rough draft, and there's nothing quite as motivating as a hardcore 30-day deadline for the first 50,000 words. :)
Say a prayer for my energy and creativity (and my ability to juggle life), and I'll be posting my word count here--if not every day, at least every other day.
(And for those of you whom I've discussed this project with, yes, it's the sci-fi "mermaid" novel.)
