I'm officially going on hiatus for the month of November. My writer friends are likely to understand why immediately, and you can go ahead and stop reading now. You get it.
For my non-writers: November is National Novel Writing Month, and I'm participating in the 50,000 word challenge to write my first novel, daunting as it is. I don't expect perfection the first time around. Heck, I don't even know if the first one will be any good at all, but I figure that once I get one under my belt, the size won't be so daunting and I can really concentrate on writing something fabulous. I'm sure it's in there somewhere.
