Thinking about growing a NaNoBeard.

After a short slumber of 5-ish hours, I'm back amongst the living.  I've been awake for two hours and all I've managed so far is drinking a lot of coffee, listening to some tunes, and shaving off the goatee I'd been working on.  All the gray hairs in it were getting long and unmanageable.  Also, I had another idea in mind...

I'm thinking about growing one of those motivational beards. I figure I can start not shaving on November first and beard it up until I either hit 50k or just can't take it any more.

We'll see if I actually do it.  I kind of like being able to see my chin again.

Now that The Slackers have left town, I can focus on NaNoWriMo again.  I'd like to say that I'm going to take advantage of my time off today to iron out some details but I'm not committing to anything besides eating, relaxing, watching the Slackers documentary I bought last night, visiting the local used bookseller to gush about the Slackers show, and possibly finish reading The Prettiest Girl I Ever Killed.

In my befogged condition, I almost forgot to mention this:  I got a message on Goodreads from Scribner about reviewing an advance copy of The Last Good Man.  I'm hoping a pipeline of ARCs will open up if they like my review.  This could be another step closer to getting paid to read.


  1. I'll approve of this only if you keep a photoblog of said beard's progress.

  2. Noice, getting paid to read would be fun!

  3. I agree with Hildred, photoblog of beard. :)

  4. PHOTOBLOG proof..YES! :D

    (we watch Sons of Anarchy and after every episode my husband threatens to grow an Opie beard.) (but, yanno, shaving DOES take time from writing, thus I support your beardage.)
