I just keep on feeling uninteresting here on livejournal. I'm trying to figure out why exactly, but I can't seem to place my finger on it. There are plenty of things that I could write about. There have been several nights that have proven to be great stories, and yet I just haven't written about them at all. I'm not sure what sort of drive I'm lacking for this, though. Maybe it's just a lack of desire to write at all. If that's true, it better go away in the next month because I'm going to try to do NaNoWriMo again this year. Last year, I stopped at about 10,000 words. My first major goal will be to beat that. I'm going to try to maintain a better writing schedule this time around. Last year, I slacked too much and just wrote when I felt like it. That's not how one completes a novel in a month, let me tell you. This year, I'm going to try and do the daily writing requirement. It's going to be part of my daily routine. It's not like I'm in school or anything. It will be like homework or something.

Anyways, I need to go to bed. At work, I'm going to start going on the phones. My 'real' job is getting started slowly but surely here.

I, too, am getting excited about NaNoWriMo, mostly because I haven't written at all since last November. I need to fix my computer at some point in the next month (although I do have a 10-year old Mac laptop that I can use for typing and little else - I'll need to see what format the word processor saves in.)

Plus, it's going to be tough, working at 5am -I'm a midnight writer. We'll see how it goes this year.

I think I need to come up with a better system then I had last year. I am totally a midnight writer and an evening person in general so I don't know what I'm going to do when the job here switches me to the morning shift. I'm going to die or something.

i wish i had a laptop that I could write on, but alas, i am too poor for something cool like that.

i'm also writing, this year with good intention
last year i was wrapped up in writing a much more important and consuming document, ie. my thesis. this year i plan on completing the NaNoWriMo task. also, i plan not to cheat. (tsk!)

yay! ryan is playing along too! good luck. :)

yea, cheating is bad with this contest because you are online competing with yourself. last year, 10,000 words isn't very good, but it's better then I've ever done before so I'm proud of it.
