On November 13, I decided to write a novel in a month. I admit to being a late started on this "write a first draft of a 50,000 word novel in the month of November." I also admit to not officially signing up on the NaNoWriMo website. It is my intention to have a first draft of my novel completed by December 13. My goal is that it won't inflict gastric consequences on anybody reading it. If it doesn't, then I will probably self-publish it as an e-book.
