November 1st. How dreadful!

This morning, between midnight and approximately 1 minute past on this, the first day of November in the Year 2008, I put pen to paper and began, what will indubitably be, the longest, most difficult and frustrating month of the year.
In the Depths of night, at the house of my friend, [personal profile] spaceman , sleep deprived and apprehensive, I, for the second torturous year in row, set out to pen an awfully written, ill-planned, 50,000 word novella in 30 days, all in the name of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, as it is affectionately referred to by those who are subjected to this cruel and unusual self-inflicted punishment.
As the minutes rolled by, delightfully, quite a bit faster than expected, the words were yanked, rather painfully, from the drunken, disheveled storyteller squatting within the derelict region of my mind known to psychologists and kindergarten teachers alike, as the imagination. Around 2 hours, a rather painful hand-cramp and a disappointingly low 1800 words later my storyteller once again fell into a drunken stupor on a pile of burlap sacks in the corner, and [personal profile] spaceman  and I were finally granted a well earned night's sleep.

Only 30 days and 50,000 words to go!
Only 29 days and 48,200 words to go!
