Adrasteius: Really?  Really.

(no subject)

I'm not participating in the 'Wrimo proper, however I am making it my solemn promise to write EVERY DAY during the month of November (note that academic work which involves writing, ie papers and presentations, is included in this, because at this point in my discipline I ONLY HAVE SO MANY WORDS IN ME PER DAY). In the interest of that goal, I will make a note of what I have written each day, although it is difficult for me to say word counts, because I'm an old fashioned square and still do a lot of initial work long-hand in a notebook.

So it's not exactly the 'Wrimo, but it is inspired by that event. I think if nothing else, participating in such events is very good for discipline--and one thing you have to understand about writing, about being a writer, is that you MUST, you MUST, be disciplined. It is really the number one hurdle any writer faces, in my opinion.
