29 October / Write
NanoWrimo. A ritual of self-inflicted pain masquerading as an exercise in self-actualization. The premise is simple - people sign up to write a novel in a single month. 30 days, 50,000 words. All it takes is one outing for most people to know that the novel they have in them is best left where it is. That lesson hasn’t stuck with me. Every November, I sign up for Nano. Most years, my enthusiasm lasts a few days.
