I never know whether it’s better to say these things out loud, because if I fail to complete the task I’m describing, what then? (See many long ago blog posts about life-changing commitments to diet and exercise, for instance.) But since I decided to put the button in my sidebar, here goes. This year I’m participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I’ve never done it before. I’m actually going to work on a novel. It will either be amazing or disheartening, spectacular or a squib. We’ll see.
