What obstacles have you faced? Have any of them included barbed wire? If not, why not? What kind of wimpy obstacle course are you running anyway?
If you are doing this “novel month” thingee, but not for the word count, doesn’t that just mean you happen to be writing a novel this month? Is that kind of like the Home Game version?
Regardless of any of that though, it’s good that you are writing, regardless of why or how. Writing> Not Writing.
Remember to post your word count on Sunday, November 4th at 11:59 PM http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/607371.html so that people can laugh, point and possibly throw rocks at you. Why? Because that’s what people like doing! Geez, are you trying to take away all of their fun????
