Incidentally, November is National Novel Writing Month. The rules are simple: try to write a 175-page novel by midnight on November 30. I've been talking about doing this for years, but was put off by the fact that, well, I wrote a novel once, between 1988 and 1991, and after three years of work...the end result was bad. Really bad. Like, Star-Trek-Harry-Potter-Crossover-Slash-Fiction bad. Okay, not as bad as that, but bad. This time, however, I don't care. My only goal is to get as close to the 175 pages as I can by the deadline. I don't wanna talk about my novel-to-be just yet, other than to relate the title: Grey City. Catchy, no?

If you wanna join the NaNoWriMo fun, just do what I did: grab a notebook and pen and start. It doesn't matter if you don't have the perfect opening sentence; I certainly didn't. The point is; get something down on paper. Write it now, make it good later.

Or submit it to a Sulu/Dumbledore shipper site, if that's your thing.

i suck.
