      Mkay... So, i've decided to sign up for this year's NanoWriMo.  November is national novel writing month and I thought it might be fun to give it a try.  The goal is this:  Write a 175 page novel by midnight November 30th. Easy, right?  That's approximately 1,669 words a day; 50,000 words in 30 DAYS!!!  From scratch...  What was I thinking???  Not sure how I intend to do this, as I will be treking through Indonesia and Thailand with a 40lb. pack on my back.  Did I mention that I will not be taking my laptop?  That means I will be writing the old fashioned way, with pen to paper and updating via internet cafes along the way.  I can do this. I will do this, I just need something to write about. Suggestions?
