Ever since I happened across National Novel Writing Month (or, NaNoWriMo for short…serious) two weeks ago I have been doing a lot of research about it. Some of that research includes, but is not limited to, how much work that would take, how awfully bad the writing would be, and how I have never stepped up to such a mentally daunting task before.

I have also been brewing all sorts of tragically boring novel ideas around in my head since I was introduced to NaNoWriMo.

I haven’t thought about the undertaking without thinking about my blog, my precious blog, which is home to only a few. For a month, or however long I would last in NaNoWriMo, my blog, I’m afraid, might be a desert. I could give progress reports on the project, but beyond that I don’t think I could write that much more considering I would have to be producing 1,667 words a day in order to get 50,000 by midnight on November 31.

So, I am signing up. You can register starting tonight. I don’t know how long I’ll last, but my goal is to finish, regardless of where my novel takes itself.

I’ll be sure to do a healthy amount of blogging in October.
