I’m pretty proud of myself: over the last 3 months, I have become much more consistent about blogging (nearly daily), and I’ve also started reading regularly again.  Part of this is due to my schedule slowing down a bit, and some of it is thanks to some better decision-making on my part.

To celebrate–and hopefully extend–this run of success, I’m actually going to be taking a bit of a furlough from the blog, or at least my normal posts about ColdFusion and theology.  Through the end of November, I’m going to be participating in National Novel Writing Month.

National Novel Writing Month (or NanoWriMo as it’s affectionately called) is a simple challenge to the world to write a 50,000 word novel…in 30 days.  While it seems like a ridiculously compressed time frame, I think it’s an intriguing idea, because it forces ideas to be put down on paper while leaving less room for the procrastination-breeding eye of the perfectionist.  50,000 words don’t come easy, so every second counts!

So anyway, I’m going to give it a shot.  This is my first year to try, so I’m not sure what to expect.  However, I think it will be a good experience whatever the outcome, and I’ll try to post regularly with some snippets of the narrative that I create.
