For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, which is probably everyone or no one since no one actually reads this, today is the start of National Novel Writing Month. It's a challenge to writer's around the world to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. I have decided to participate even though it means putting my current novel aside and starting a new one. Today I started and I did the math. I would have to do over 1600 words a day, everyday. Today I pushed myself to do at least that and I ended up doing 1867 words! I have a profile and progress report at http://www.nanowrimo.org/userinfo.php?uid=101540 .

Ashley, it looks like you've got some spam comments here. You should turn on the "Word verification" in your setup. If that doesn't stop 'em, you should also block Anonymous comments, although that's a little more drastic.

Good luck with the novel writing thing! I am reminded of the line from the first episode of the third season of "Reno 911", where the officers from the Reno Sheriff's Department (who have been jailed for nearly a year) are being asked about what they're doing during their time in prison. "I'm working on my first novel," one of them says proudly. "It's Carrie by Steven King."
