NaNoWri NO

I've never participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and I don't plan to do so. If you NaNo, good for you! I'm genuinely happy for and supportive of you. I won't do it, though, because I know me and this is what will happen:
  1. I will start full of energy and good intentions. 
  2. Something will happen that will cause me to miss a day. 
  3. I will slip behind and never catch up. 
  4. I will then berate myself for failing at something as simple as this. 
  5. My brain weasels will use this as an example of why I'm a useless person and will remind me of my failure on a regular basis. 
Look, I don't make the rules here; this is just how my brain works. The best I can do it try to mitigate the effects. 


All that said, I'm still going to try to do something this November, because I've felt like a slack-ass for quite a long time and I want to get back into the habit of writing. To that end, instead of writing a novel this month I'm going to try to write more blog posts. My goal will be five posts per week, although I give myself advance forgiveness if I don't make that goal. 

Since this is the second week of November and I'm only now writing this, you can see what a splendid start this is for me. 

Look, I make no promises about quality, just quantity. 

... okay, I've spent the past three hours trying to think of something to add to this, and I can't. So I'm calling it here. But at least I wrote something
