Look, let’s be honest here: there’s no way in hell I’m writing a novel this month. Work and other things will be driving me to distraction as usual in November. It’s my busiest time of year and the busiest year I’ve seen since I started my current job. When I’m not working, I’ll probably be either trying to make some extra cash with side projects or diving into some escapist reading.

But I appreciate the idea of National Novel Writing Month, while utterly rejecting the possibility of my own participation. And to those brave souls who are giving it a go, especially the one I know personally, I wish you the very best of luck. In solidarity, I personally pledge to write an entire blog post over the month of November.

And here it is. Bright, shiny and squeaking in at just under 150 words. I might even do two!
