So, I'm doing this thing. There's a story to be told, a character to follow as she journeys. And I have the month of November to do this in.
I've done NaNo before, five times if memory serves. And "won" twice. The competition is against myself, my laziness—not to put too fine a point on it.
The first was a real win, because "Not by Dark Alone" came from it. A story I've reread a few times. I still think it survives the rereading.
To all who are venturing down this crazy paving path this November, best of luck. Have fun with it.
I'm kjmackey on the NaNoWriMo site, should you wish to connect.
