So for those of you into pain and suffering and self deprecation, it’s that time of year again. That’s right, NaNoWriMo!

What is this, you might ask? Well, it is a competition against yourself with no prizes where you attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in the 30 days of November.

Well that’s only a measly 1667 words a day. No problem, right?  Yours truly has competed three years and never completed it once. I came close in 2007, with 44,000 words while running combat missions in Iraq. How I got there, I have no idea.

If you like to write, this is for you. If you hate your free time, this is for you. If you enjoy pain and suffering, this is for you.

It is also a lot of fun.
