Let the noveling begin!

Happy November! And, if you’re a writer or have writer friends, you know that this means it’s the start of NaNoWriMo!  Now, I’ve known of National Novel Writing Month for years, and I have even made some attempts at it in the past.

Legs! Legs! Legs!

So, before I get too far into this stream-of-consciousness rambling, I want to make something clear – I don’t know that I really have an opinion on this topic beyond the questions/commentary I’m about to type.
