Begun this National Novel Writing Month Has...

Well, here we are again.  NaNoWriMo Day 1.  I may have secretly written a bit in my cube this morning before anyone else arrived.  Don't tell anyone.

I'm shooting for 5k today.  While officially it's so I can finish early and enjoy Thanksgiving without writing-guilt, it's also because I'm anxious to evad the beard itchiness that should be setting in around Day 10.

A few days ago, Hildred Billings, writer of enormous chapters, posted the following template for her NaNoWriMo blog posts.

Day #:

Words Written Today:
Total Words Written:

I'll probably use a similar template for my end of the day posts, along with a photo detailing my beardification status.

Happy writing, everyone!


  1. Good luck! I'm sure that you can do it. :)

  2. (Is it horrible that the first thing I noticed about this post was my name in purple...)

    Indeed, here we go again. I must say that your beard thing is probably the most amusing "excuse" to finish early I've heard yet. Then again I can sympathize. I get little errant hairs on my chin at times, and one very, very stupid day I decided to just shave them off.

    Ooops. :(

    You always do amazingly :)
