For the last five years or so I have attempted and failed to participate in National Novel Writing Month. I say failed only because I can never get to the 50k word count that they are looking for. It’s not even a ridiculous goal, I just get distracted half way through the month and end up doing pretty much anything else.

This year I have a lot more riding on it. This year the hope is to actually be able to get a novel done, as rough a draft as it may be, so that I can build off of it. It is also going to be used to get my mind out of the writer’s block that seems to have persisted a lot longer than I would like.

So that’s the goal for this year: Kill the writer’s block. Anyone else in?
