Nothing New...once more...

Let's see, what's new that I can talk about?

I'm still undecided as to whether or not to do NaNoWriMo this year. Part of me says that I'm going to fail anyway and not to try, but part of me wants to see if the problem was the idea I'm working on. Even though I claimed not to care about last year's idea, the truth was that it was something I did care about (I had envisioned it spinning off into a series), had plenty of "baggage" attached to it (as with 99% of my ideas), and wanted to do "right," so that hindered me more than any other constraint. This year I'm going for something of a completely different prose style that I really don't care about. I mean I can't even make myself care about it, or try to focus on story arcs, despite trying to do so. (It doesn't help that it's really, really bad, more of an ex If I get any further than 12,000 words in this one, I'll call it a victory. But I don't know if I should even try, as there are 10,000 other things that I'd like to do, but come across that same barrier of inadequacy.

Other than that. Same old life.
