Test, one two three. Ok. I'm going to be using this as a spot to throw up chunks of my Nanoproject, write side stories, and do general whining during the whole process.

I can't believe I neglected this thing for so long. Ah well. Better late than never and all that jazz.
And here we are again. November, a.k.a. Nanowrimo, a.k.a. The Month of Angst, Suck, and Fail.

Every year I say "I'm so totally going to do this! I've the BEST PLOT IDEA EVAR, and and and, my characters are made of WIN, and nothing can stop me because I am a writer-type person and THIS IZ MY DESTINY."

And somewhere mid-month, when Life looks at me with a sly smirk and hands me my pride and my ass on a platter, I close out the file, sink into a horrid three day depression, and help other people with their projects.  I know some people were meant to be betas in life, to support and build up from the foundations other people have laid down. I frankly love doing that. It brings me untold joy to play in other people's worlds, to help shape and craft tales and breathe life into them.

But I long with all I have to produce that one thing I can point to and say "This here? This is mine, my epic, the child born of long caffine filled nights, nagging dreams, figments of imagination and a childhood watching too much television and reading books I really had no buisness reading at that age. These are my word-babies. Let me show you them."

Dearest f-list, I beg your indulgence for the next month as I struggle with this project. It means more to me than ever before that I actually meet this goal. There is nothing holding me back, no excuses to be made, no stumbling block to hide behind. I have a nine to five, free weekends (mostly), and no school. It's the kind of position I've always said would be ideal for writing. Now I have to prove to myself that I can. Every once in a while I may put chunklets of the Work In Progress up here. You don't have to comment, but a few words of encouragement would be cherished.

Now to strap myself onto this hulking beast and get ready for a wild ride. Oh boy.
