So I've decided to take the plunge and participate in NaNoWriMo this November. That little bit of shorthand stands for National Novel Writing Month, 30 days in which a bunch of random strangers take a not-particularly-serious oath to complete a 50,000 word novel. (50,000 counts as a novel, I suppose, and not a novella, but just barely. It's about 175 pages.)

The site asks you to choose a "genre" for your profile, which was the first point at which it occurred to me that, here it is, November 2nd, and I don't even know what I'm going to write about. I'm sure I'll come up with something (I already have a few ideas), but just to lock myself in, I selected "Horror & Thriller" as my genre. So this should be interesting...

Anyone who has a lot of time on his or her hands and wants to take part in this thing should sign up as my buddy here!
