Well, it's that time of year again, when those writers who are truly insane or have a lot of free time (but mostly just those that are insane) attempt Nanowrimo. I attempted it once... six years ago (holy crap, that long ago?). But I lack the self-discipline to crank out 50k words in a month. I haven't quite gotten that far on my current novel, and I've been working on it for... I don't know how long, I think 5-ish years for the current plotline.

That said, I think I will at least use Nanowrimo as a motivator to kick myself in the butt and finish the first draft this month. I currently have roughly 45-50k words and have started organizing what I have and filling in some of the gaps. I'm aiming for 75k words. So organizing the rest of what I already have and writing another 25-30k words is more reasonable. At the very least, I hope to accomplish most of that task.

But it's November... and my baby sister is turning 20 later this month... aaaaaaahhhhhhhh! I feel old. I'll also be getting a new baby cousin around Thanksgiving. It seems like just a short time ago, little Jaden came into this world, and now he's getting a little sister. Holy crap.

Some girl I went to high school with added me on Facebook. I'm not sure why, since we never got along. She was a loud, annoying, snotty cheerleader, a prime example of the "bitchy popular girl" archetype so prevalent in teenage chick flicks. What the crap, she treated me like dirt in junior high and high school, and now she wants to be "friends?" Yeah, right. I think not. IGNORE!

    Time for another "year in retrospect" post. 2010 was actually a pretty good year for me, all things considered. In the middle of January, I adopted…

    Well, NaNoWriMo is over. In one way, I failed to meet my original goal, but I didn't fail epically, and I did make good progress. The original goal…
