A novel in 30 days?!

Okay... so it has been a dreadfully long time since I posted anything here. Too many things have held my interest over these past many months to spend much time and thought here. However, something new has since gripped my affections. I am somewhat reluctant to post this publicly, but only for fear that I may fail in my endeavor. It is national novel writing month (nanowrimo) and I have undertaken a challenge to write a novel in thirty days. The goal is to write an entire novel, 50,000 words, from November 1st to November 30th. It is a daunting task, to say the least, even without the other bits of schoolwork that I have lingering in the back of my mind. However, I just finished writing the last of my papers for the semester and now I am free to write to my heart's content! We'll see if this plays out or if I give up somewhere halfway through. I've wanted to write something longer than a short story for a long time now, at least since high school, and now I have the motivation to do so. Time will tell if I'm made of the stuff needed to endure this challenge... In the meantime, I've posted a word count meter on the blog to broadcast to the world my current status, so that perhaps the shame of public humiliation will spur me on to victory! So, here we go!
Thank's for stopping by!
