Today I had to research weather on Okinawa (accidentally learned how to spell that correctly, also) and whether a skidoo requires a key for its ignition system (yes).
I was having trouble getting started, and one of my fellow VPers suggested I throw in some bacon. It worked! I wrote a sentence about a bit character eating some bacon, and then I was off!
So it's my first NaNoWriMo tip is this: When you get stuck, throw in some bacon. Everything is better with bacon.
