I learned recently that National Novel Writing Month is upon us. Every November, thousands sign up publicly for the challenge of writing a short novel, (or at least 50,000 words of a longer one) at nanowrimo.org. The challenge is inspiring, and I was tempted to go for it myself, especially since I actually do have a unfinished draft lying around on the ol’ hard drive.
But last night, as I was just about to click Yes to the challenge, a dose of reality hit me… finish this novel is actually very low on my list of priorites… What I really want to do this month is to further my skills with C#, XML, and OOP on the techie side (which I’m finally starting to make some progess in), as well as studying Esperanto, and of course, continue my exploration of the "Wild Things of God". I also want to blog more and process some of the things I’ve experienced recently, and to translate my "spirituality" pages into Esperanto.
But the spirit of the NaNoWriMo challenge might still be able to help me though. I’m committing to writing a blog post every day in November. It’s possible that not all of them will be on this site… if you’re interested in my techie side or in Esperanto, also check WildWebWeaving.com and the Esperanto Club of Hampton Roads. At any rate, expect a bit more activity on this site in November.
