Know thyself ... and start on the second day.

I have found myself the ultimate "get yourself moving and write" site. Well, I thought I had yesterday. 
This year's National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) has begun. The theory : begin writing on November 1st with a goal to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.  http://www.nanowrimo.org/        Simples.  

Or rather, not at simple as I thought.

I had all good intentions this morning. Even knowing that I had "other"  things to do, I was certain that I would have a good few hundred words written. I ought to know myself better. Of course, the site itself has been working so slow that I haven't even managed to upload the novel title yet (I 'm sure it does have a title) and of course I had to write this blog and chat about writing on other forums first. I have also had to read how other people are getting on with their own NaNoWriMo entries, find out who my buddies are and make supportive comments and the like. 

So there we have it. I shall be participating in NaNoWriMo 2010. I will finish by 30th November. And I will begin on the second day ...
