Okay, I admit it. I'm entering NaNoWriMo.

I'm also traveling for work early on Tuesday and returning on Friday. I've got one other business trip in November, and we're flying to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with my sister's family, and at some point we'll need to celebrate our anniversary and prepare for December, which will mostly be taken up by visiting in-laws.

In other words, I'm going to fail NaNoWriMo, but I feel like giving it my best effort is the kind of thing I need to be doing right now. Unfortunately, best effort means eliminating distractions, so you probably won't see me at all for the next month. I'll allow myself back onto social media if I'm ahead on my wordcount for the day, or if I fail so spectacularly and so early that I can tell I'm never catching up. (This is essentially what happened the first two or three times I entered, some ten-fifteen years ago.)

So please don't take it personally if I'm even worse about commenting or responding than I usually am. And if anyone else happens to be entering, come say hi.
