Is it too early to start thinking about National Novel Writing Month? November feels far off, but it's only 36-days away. A length of time that could easily slip past without notice with the ramp up to Halloween and the onset of winter. And yet it is plenty of time to come up with a story idea and some sort of framework to hang that story on; a bit of prep time if you jump on it now and take advantage of it. I called Doug earlier today and mentioned to him that I was thinking that this could be the push I need to get started and the deadline I need to get me working steadily. He agreed. I asked if he was up for it this year. He seemed to think that maybe he was. So I've added the NaNoWriMo progress bar to the sidebar and we're going to restart the weekly writing call in an attempt to get the creative juices flowing again. I'm feeling good about this. I really think this will be the event that'll get me back on the writing wagon. A wagon that I really want to be on.
