In November, I’m writing a 50,000 word novel

I’m telling you this, because the advice from NaNoWriMo is, and I quote,

3) Tell everyone you know that you’re writing a novel in November. This will pay big dividends in Week Two, when the only thing keeping you from quitting is the fear of looking pathetic in front of all the people who’ve had to hear about your novel for the past month. Seriously. Email them now about your awesome new book. The looming specter of personal humiliation is a very reliable muse.

See you in December, and we’ll see if I look pathetic or elated.
