It is the first day of NaNoWriMo, and for all of my talk about challenging myself by writing with an Idea this time, I'm thinking of scrapping it. I've thought about the Idea for two weeks now, and as such, have no idea where to start. Plus, I'm scared shitless by the fact that I don't have an Alphasmart, and even though Jessie is letting me borrow her laptop, it isn't the same.

I'm excited by my NaNo pep talks, they're making me feel all warm and gushy inside, but I don't know if I'll truly be in the NaNo spirit until I've been to a write-in where Jesso is berating me for not buckling down and pounding out a gazillion words. I want to have some sort of random concept or something for this novel, but I don't...maybe I should just go for it, don't take any dares, and see what happens? Pfft, as if I've ever done THAT before.

Don't ask me why, but this is the first year that NaNo has ever scared me to the point of saying, "Yeah, I'm not ready."

I'm going to do it anyway, because that's what I do, but, shoot, am I ever unprepared*!

*I'm unprepared every year, but this year I was unprepared for being unprepared, if that makes sense.
