I'm going to do another crazy thing . . .

I've decided to declare May 2006 as my Personal Novel Writing Month. PerNoWriMo, if you will. I'm going to bash out a 50,000 novel in the space of one month.

Because I'm doing this on my own, rather than as one of millions in November, I'm cheating slightly on two counts--one I'm probably going to be using the opening paragraph that I've been staring at for weeks to start it. But it's not very many words. Also, I'm going it in a 31-day month, which allows me a little more time.

I tend to cheat when I play solitaire, anyway.

I just want this fricking story out of my system and I think the only way I'm going to manage is to give myself a deadline and stop worrying so much about perfection.

What's it about? Well, if things work out, it'll be about 50,000 words. That's all I can say with certainty.

Today I took pleasure in seeing The Julia Dream play a short but sweet early evening set for some kind of competition.

Today I learned the hilarity that is jesusoftheweek.com.

My god, girlfriend. That's a Herculean task. I so admire you for taking it on. Let us know how it goes, OK? So I can envy you in smothering coals for the rest of my eternity? Thanks much, sweetie. :)

Hey, I did it once before. November 2005. So I know it's possible.

J2k6 site is the Nazz!
Too, too funny. Just what I needed to stave off midterm brainlock.
