Signed Up and Ready to Write

If you have not looked at yesterday's post, go ahead and check it out, I'll excuse you.

Yesterday's post was a writing exercise as instructed by the book, Writing Down the Bones.  It's an exercise that teaches the writer to disconnect from the inner-critic.  Throw logic out the window and just write non-stop.  Well, I did that, and that was the product.  It doesn't make much in the way of sense, but it so much fun to write like that.  There is one small caveat, I did correct all grammar and spelling errors that I made.  I don't want anyone to think I'm that good.

The question begs, why did I decide to post this?  Besides the simple fact that it looked like something that truly represents the inner-working of my mind, I have decided to participate in something.  I do not want to even dare compare my task-at-hand to something like Churlita's triathlon training, but I have decided to sign up for NaNoWriMo 2009.  It stands for National Novel Writing Month and dares participants to write a 175-page (50,000 word) novel during the entire month of November.  I am participating this year because I want a challenge.  I will continue posting throughout the month and I will keep you updated on my status throughout the month.
