... in the service of NaNoWriMo this year. Because otherwise I may be screwed by the alignment of the days of the week.
I have just realized that my grand plan to take Nov 1 off and get a head start is a massive fail, as November is also United Way month at my office, and I'm the campaign chair, and I should probably attend the kickoff event I haven't planned yet.
Stupid, stupid do-gooding, it gets in the way of the writing, too.
Also, my immediate family thinks NaNoWriMo is a bad idea, because "What will you get out of it?" they asked. Well, another first draft, for one thing. (As if I need more of those?) And a sense of community.
