novel yes having maybe write

"This is either the second coming of Christ or the condom broke."

I don't know what is more brilliant, the fact that line happened to be on my screen when the picture was taken or the fact that Setch called me out on slacking during Nanowrimo's 'Night of Writing Dangerously'.

Yeah, I was checking facebook and not making word count. Last November I came blazing out of the gate 19,000 words strong within the first 2 weeks.

And then I sorta sat on it.

Like I always do.

I mean, the reason I started a rigorous Bikram regimen was to avoid having to write the damn book.

And in true hotpants fashion I chained myself to the laptop Spanksgiving weekend and threw up 30,000 words in 4 days. Sure, lots of it was unintelligible, but it was all about making word count.

I've started thinking about it as someone asked me if I was going to do it this year. It is the perfect time. I'm still unemployed. I have no excuse. I've been reading more fiction lately.

And if worse comes to worse, I'll at least start another rigorous Bikram regimen to avoid writing the novel and will eventually get back down to my birth weight.
