I cannot believe that it is the last day of October already! That means that tomorrow is the first day of nanowrimo! (Actually, the more I think about it, I don't think it could have come at a better time). Anyway, I have been wanting to try this for years and have somehow managed to either talk myself out of it, forget about it, or otherwise miss the boat every time... but not this time! I think that this is the year that I actually give it a try. I'm not going to say that I will be entirely successful, in fact, I would almost guarantee that there is little chance that I will complete the goal each day, or that I will even write each day, (I have to accept the limitations of the life I lead as well as my own limitations as a human being), but if I can commit to trying to write each day for a month, that's progress! For that matter, I think that any effort to push one's self to try anything new, to face down a new challenge or to explore beyond their comfort zone is an effort worthy of respect. I don't think that "completion" is always the measure or success. Whatever the case, I am going to give it a try and see where I get. Who knows? I might just roll into December with the next "Great American Novel"!
