One extra hour of repreive….

I think I’ve finally come up with a story idea. It came from a very detailed dream I once had, actually. One I thought would make a good story someday. I don’t honestly know if I can pull 50,000 words out of it or write those words in 30 days, but it is worth a try.

Anyways, talk about last minute dealings, eh. Here I am, less than two hours until the start of Nanowrimo 2004, and I just now decide on an idea. Not that I ever planned to actually start at 12:00:01 A.M. or anything like that. In fact, I probably won’t start writing until later on in the afternoon. It does, however, make me glad that the ending of Daylight Savings Time has given me one extra hour of repreive.

When you care enough to write the very best…

So…. I haven’t decided yet if this new site is a good thing or a bad thing. Perhaps it is a necessary evil.

I have a little over five days before this madness begins, and I am still wondering what I plan to write about for NANOWRIMO 2004. First, let me explain what NANOWRIMO is. It is a crazy sickness. A time of great peril for procrastinators and horrid writers alike. In short, it is this odd idea that anyone can take pen to paper…. or fingers to keypad…. and write a 50,000 word story — a novel — in one month. The month of November to be exact. A noble endeavor, perhaps. A folly of nature, for certain.

So…. let’s return to my original thought. Is this site a good thing or a bad thing. I mean it could be a great motivator for me. It could help keep track of my word count. Smack me when I slack off. Or, it could very well become my way to procrastinate. Instead of writing a novel, I’ll be fiddling with this site. We shall see….

Anyways…. I am going to try and use this site to keep track of my word count and place excerpts of what I am writing as entries.
