Before you get too excited (or annoyed, if you're Cowboy), be aware that I am NOT going to write a novel in November. I've done Nano six times and won four, and I'm a chapter away from finishing my sixth novel. I know I can write 50,000 words in 30 days. I know I can write novels. So this year, I'm not caring about my word count. Oh, I'll still enter it on the site when I write, post snippets, all that fun stuff. But I'm not going to be bummed when it turns out I "lost."
So why am I signed up? Well, I've got a handful of short stories that have been waiting a year to be written, while I concentrate on this novel. I'd like to try to knock out rough drafts of them. And I haven't done Nano since 2010, and I'd like to attend a write-in or two and meet some other writers, or some such fiddle faddle.
Anyway, if you're doing Nano too (seriously, or non-seriously like me) and you want to look me up, I'm Hamlette there too :-)
This will be going on my laptop's desktop again, starting next Friday:
Cuz who wouldn't want to make those guys smile, right? Actually, it's kind of a dangerous thing to have on my desktop, as I tend to get lost in Avengerful daydreams, but daydreaming is good for writing. If I don't have daydreaming, my writing productivity slacks off. Honest.
