Administrative Notes

In a further attempt to kick-start my writing, I'll be taking part in National Novel Writing Month beginning Wednesday. My friend Katy did it last year, and recommended it -- we'll see how it goes. I'll be starting from scratch (novels-in-progress are forbidden), and a day and a half before the start, I have no idea what I'm going to write. But deadlines always help me, and hopefully that'll be the case here.

Once I'm started, I'll provide more info on whatever I'm making public, and put a permanent link over to the right somewhere.

Extra work this week, so I still haven't made permanent photo albums from St. Petersburg or Prague. Soon. In the meantime, La Nanuk went to Italy, and has been putting up a bunch of cool photos. In lieu of me doing anything these days, check 'em out.

Good freakin' luck!

I'd never be able to get a novel out. My ideas last for about 100 words, and that's it.

Yeah. It's gonna be a mountain. I'm good at quirky little anecdotes. But 50,000 words? Whoooo. That's one long anecdote.

After a few days, I'd probably be like, "Novel? I thought you said navel..." and then stare down at my belly-button until they felt sorry for me and let me quit.
