I'm thinking about writing next month.  
I've known about NaNoWriMo for years, but I've never participated. Whether it's fear or laziness, for whatever reason I've totally slacked off. I hate starting a writing project. all I can think of are the bajillions of school papers I've written. It's not that I hated writing them, but I really hated starting them. After I got them started, everything seemed to write itself, and I always managed to get good grades. I just suck at starting stuff.

I don't know if I've mentioned it or not, but I don't really draw much anymore. I wasn't terribly good at it. I mean, I didn't suck donkey balls, but I wasn't great at it. I needed classes and crap. srsly. -..- ANYWAY.. I still keep sketch books around. I just don't spend much time drawing in them anymore. I've been writing down strange dreams and story ideas for a few years now and not really doing anything about them.

I write a little bit every month just to tell you guys what's going on, but that's about it.

I'm seriously thinking about starting a 50,000 word novel on Nov 1st, though! I guess I'm a little bit scared that it could totally suck. I'm more scared about writing the parts of the story I haven't quite figured out yet. Those are the parts that will probably suck :P Plus, I know that when I am done, I'll be proud of it and want to show it off, but I'll be terrified of negative feedback :P I'm not going to let any of that hold me back. My own personal laziness, however, is another story. Still.. If I can figure out whether or not I have any sort of wordprocessing program on this computer, I might as well give it a shot, right?

damn. I just googled that.
You could write about emo/drama courtship, dating, and failures!
I need to write more in general again just for the sake of it.
Facebook microblogging doesn't count much.

I can put one in named Kev, and I'll have the main character ride him around town

I've been developing one idea for a while, so I think it might be fun to go with, if I can get motivated!

Becky, I have been telling you that you should write a book. I hope you do and I hope I am still around to see it.
