Nothing but Crows

Certifiably Isane? I think so!

I did something crazy today. I've seen a bit of chat here and there about it and the idea has been floating through my head... I signed up for NaNoWriMo. That's right. I've signed up to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. Will I be able to do it? I have no clue but I'm pretty sure this indicates that I'm completely insane.

Within the month of November I'll still be in class, with readings to do and I'll also have to write a 12-15 page essay.

I've been wanting to write a novel ever since I was a kid. My childhood best friend had written a full length novel when we were preteens and ever since then I've wanted to do the same myself. I love writing but I've never found the motivation or patience to just sit down and do it. Is this the cruelest way I could go about it? Possibly. But there's a part of me that really wants something more than just playing FFXI every night (as much as I love it and am totally addicted to it).

It starts at 12:01am on Nov. 1st and ends at midnight Nov. 30th. We'll see where it takes me.
