I have written this much on whether to use em or en dashes in engineering proposals, so I’m hoping I can pull it off with a piece of fiction. It will probably be terrible, but what the hey, at least it’ll be. And for me, writing a novel actually qualifies as procrastinating from other writing that I think I should be doing, so maybe that means I’ll actually get it done.
An old friend, with whom I recently came back into contact for the first time in a couple of years, has inspired me to sign up for the National Novel Writing Month, a.k.a. NaNoWriMo. Over the month of November, I and thousands of others will attempt to bang out 50,000 words each.
