    Anyone else insane? The notion is to write (at least) 50,000 words of a novel in the month of November.

    I’ve been meaning to do this for years and then trying to find a new job, starting a new job, writing the nonfiction book, dumping my partner, or otherwise being really busy and distracted in November. This year, I’ve decided I’ll at least try.

    Thank you kindly.

    I will consider it practice for January commuting. :)

    A thesis is a novel, right?

    Sure, if you want it to be!

    Though I am kinda hoping it’s not fiction. :)

    Son of a bitch I just signed up.
    five days late.
    If I can hammer out 2,000 words every night by the end of the month I can do it.
    fuck it; let’s go.

    LOL, awesome.

    Remember, if you get stuck, just send in ninjas. BIKE NINJAS.

    I think today is the over-inflated ambition balloon.

    Heh, I guess I get the Participation Trophy! I am at 12,000 words, which is a little behind, but nothing horrible. I will make it up on the weekend and reward myself with soup buns and spicy shrimp.

    Hey this looks like fun and I’m sadistic.

    Maybe I can hone some of my sleepless nights into something productive.

    Here I go!

    I wrote 2 pages yesterday. I think that is the most I can do in a day. I was hoping to do 4 but I think that is overly optimistic.

    That seems fair. Writing a dissertation is harder. You can’t just send in bike ninjas whenever you get stuck.

    You could put in a mitosis scene but it’s really not the same.
