WRIMO BEGIN! (01 Nov 2003 at 11:54)
Today begins National Novel Writing Month, and I'm doin' it. (Think: album-a-day but for novels, and you get a month.) That means a moratorium on all other (hobby) projects until I hit 50,000 words or the month ends.

My novel, currently called, "Name of Author" (by "Title of Book") is an abstract, plotless Pangaea. Nothing is off limits! Therefore, like when I attempt an album-a-day, I welcome your "song titles" -- tiny, perhaps nonsensical, phrases and concepts. All month long! Let me have it!

Current word count: 1.

Ha, I actually for a moment this morning considered calling the novel "Excluded Middle."

Ok, I changed my mind and am going to try it again this year, but I'll probably allow myself to get distracted with AADs instead.

I'm glad to see you're still still around! I'm a big fan of your fonts. I'm also a writer (for the screen), and a blogger, as it were. I've been on a bit of a break too: I have pages submitted to an L.A. management company and it's as good an excuse as any to stop writing for a bit.
I've been playing with CSS (my ranking is novice) on my new home page:
http://dcdaniel.greatnow.com/
I have some freeware fonts there and a link to your site too.

Good luck with the novel. Don't feel bad if you don't finish it--every writer has at least one orphaned book laying around.

But I already have an orphaned book laying around. It's bad to have two!

Well, if the two orphans together aren't longer than one book you can count them both as one. Another option is to physically combine the two MSs. Viola! one orphaned book.
I have only one orphaned novel. I briefly considered turning it into a screenplay. I decided it should be a novel first.

Writing about writing is the one taboo to avoid! But I like the idea of tattoos on asses.
