NaNoWriMo 2008

I think this makes it official. I am insane.

Two weeks ago I had my first "one on one" meeting with my boss (silly me, I wore my converse hi-tops and Kurt Rambis goggles, but that wasn't what he meant). We have a huge task coming up next year, and I said I was excited about it, even though I didn't really know how to accomplish it. My boss noted at that time that I was, in his word, "insane." I couldn't really argue. I took it as a compliment.

Now I've signed up for my fifth tour of duty with NaNoWriMo. As if huge workload at Day Job, family and house, coaching soccer and playing soccer, cub scouts, boy scouts, and the occasional six hours of sleep didn't keep me busy enough. I haven't even submitted my current novel, Gold Miner's Daughter, anywhere for ages. (Note to self: send that sucker out!)

Any of you out there also playing NaNo this year? My user ID is "pjd" (wow, how ironic is that?), and my profile page is here. Let me know if you buddy me so I can buddy you back.

Hey! I did just buddy you - I love the pic of you and your young man - he's striking! Anyway, I'm hoping the pjd mojo rubs off on me - my first year out! Yay!

Best of luck with NaNo. I hope I can find a plot and jump in for my fourth year. I've only one once but I still love the experience. My author name is IlovetowriteSMP.

Good luck with that. I'll be traveling for about week in the Mo of Nov so I'll be sitting it out.

Wait, I forgot to add: Kurt Rambis rocks!

I'll stick to spectating, thanks. Look forward to it!

Good Luck! You are a glutton for punishment. 5 years? I thought once was enough for me.

I'll be doing my own writing with a deadline of Dec 1, but it won't be 50K words.
