one time i tried to write a novel.

It's November, which is when National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is attempted by writers all around the world! Now, I wouldn't even call myself a writer, but I've always liked the idea.

What's the problem? I really don't know how to write fiction at all. My one attempt (seven years ago?) was laughably a memoir, with additional little fantasies I would want to happen in my real life. (Such as meeting a boy in a record store, and the like.) And on top of the hideous non-fictioness of it, I barely even finished!

So instead I've decided to declare November as the month where I try to post to this blog every day. (I will apologize upfront, dear readers.) This is also known as NaBloPoMo, but on this site it appears that EVERY month is a good one to update every day. Isn't that just an exercise in which to be thoroughly annoying? I mean, if you attempt to write a novel nobody has to read it.

Anyway. That's my intro for the month, and I will try not to pollute your feed readers with too much trivial stuff. Alright, time for this BLOG PARTY to get started!

(In other news, it's 9pm on a Saturday so I should really be out. Woo.)

perhaps I shall try this blogging every day thing as well, especially considering that I have not blogged since my inaugural post in like, JULY.

You should! We should also make scrabble plans finally!

I know at least 2 people doing the novel writing. I myself don't have the focus to finish a to-do list.

Adam, I probably don't have enough focus to update my blog every day! Heh.

This is why my blog only contains pictures

I actually think my next goal should be to take at least one picture a day outside of my apartment. Mostly because it's good to get out.
