I should have my head examined...

* sigh* I did it. I just signed up for the NaNoWriMo. I must be out of my mind. Normally I would have no problems writing 50k words in a month. Those who've been reading some of the stories I've been writing know that it's hard for me not write at least 50k in a month. But to do that and do the NaNoWriMo? What was I thinking!! It will be my first non-B7 story. Although I couldn't get totally away from it. It will be a B7-related (kind of) story.

I do plan to continue writing the current stories while I'm doing this. And yes, they will take precedence over the NaNo stuff. Hence the "I should have my head examined..." I may hold off on doing any more challenges though. At least I'd better not do anymore. I really should not do anymore...I really really should not do anymore. Unless I get a good idea...

Any encouragement is welcome. Or maybe someone with a really big sledgehammer to stop me from writing before I go completely nuts.

Is anyone else doing the NaNoWriMo?

Here's the first excerpt...

The Muses in My Head
an excerpt
I am NOT a morning person and it's ...well...morning. I hate mornings. Whoever invented mornings should have their licences revoked or suffer a fate worse than death or at least receive a good reprimanding.  

I am just not prepared for mornings. They sneak up on you when you're having a really good dream and drag you into the cold light of reality.
