OK, a few more NaNoWriMo details

Hi, Friends.

As you can see from what's gone before, I am Nano'ing next month. I decided today to take the plunge -- it might have been Keith R.A. DeCandido publicly speculating that maybe even he should sign up that pushed me over the edge to do this -- and now I'm excited. And fully cognizant of the fact that I must be NUTS.

I'll create what will first be a private entry on my journal set for 12:01 a.m. November 1st. I'll add to that whenever, from wherever; maybe I'll need to make it multiple entries, but at first my NaNo novel will be a single entry. At some point, I will make it a Friends-locked entry (with an LJ cut), so all y'all will be able to view it. And if any of you asks me what I've done each day with NaNoWriMo, I'll have to give an honest answer.

I have no idea yet what I'm going to write. I've planned not at all. I will NOT be pulling out any of my unfinished work, as that violates the rules and spirit of NaNoWriMo. Thus I cannot currently guarantee it'll make any fucking sense; in fact, I'm toying with it being an exercise in almost-randomness, sort of in the spirit of merovingian and evilpodiatrist. We'll see.

The bottom line is, I've needed to write again. It's time to force myself to write again.
