I just found out about #NaNoWarmUp. Which is just what the doctor. Because I’d only been writing like 100 words a day on my new project, due to things like work and trying to find more work and making an album and going to shows and trying to find an agent for that other book I wrote and watching the end of Breaking Bad. And, okay, I’m not sure I was fully prepared for the big miserable questions my new main character is asking. So I keep stepping away from my laptop to see if there’s any cat vomit I can clean up, and waiting for November, when I can be that fool writing a novel in a month again with no time to stop and reflect. Anything but write today.

But #NaNoWarmUp! Writing 25k words in the month of October! This is the exact kick in the exact pants I was looking for.
