National Novel Writing Month, the reason I've been absent for the entire month of November, is finished. And just like the last time I participated in this grueling experience, I'm both a winner and a loser. Officially, I'm a winner in that I completed a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. I'm a loser because I didn't finish my story, just like in 2007. In fact, I stopped mid-sentence this year. I entered my text into the word validation tool on the site and as soon as it told me that I have written 50,008 words, I sank into my seat in relief and closed the word file. Maybe I'll finish it someday. Probably not.
Anyway, now that it's done, I can get back to the business of blogging. And thanks to those awful rat bastards at the American Anthropological Association, I have plenty to blog about. Details to follow, good people.
