It's that time of year again, dear readers.

Despite the tough time (read: near mental break and a blatant inability to come up with a decently organized and plotted story) I've been having with my creative writing this fall, for the last month I've been kicking around the idea of participating in NaNo.

I have a working title. I have two main characters. I have a handful of peripheral characters.

I have no plot. (Well, that's not entirely true. I have a vague plot that doesn't seem that strong.)

Granted, that's never stopped me before. But does the world really need one more unfinished novel?

Furthermore, do I really need one more 50,000 word (but still not quite finished) monster cluttering up my hard drive (flash drive, office shelf)?

The Magic 8 Ball says "my sources say no."

But who's going to listen to a collection of plastic and water?

I always adhere to the Mystical Magic 8 Ball...except of course when I disagree with it! Good luck with your NaNo this year! I don't have as much organized as I'd like, but like you, that's never stopped me before! Here's to 50K!

Luck to you as well.

I did manage to work out more of a plot line and even jot down an outline of my first two chapters. So that's something!
