Rite moar!

I am not doing nanowrimo, because it's been many years since I gave up any illusion that I can write. But I have seen a few people are doing variants, such as committing to making a substantial post every day, or just taking on the goal of finding a bit more time for writing.

I think I'm going to have a go at writing 50,000 words of meaningful communication in November. I probably won't make it, but having some numbers and a game to play will hopefully motivate me in the ongoing battle to keep in touch with my friends in spite of geography. I'm making up the rules as I go along, since it's only for my own satisfaction, but basically I'm counting emails with personal content, blog posts, and comments that contain some substance and thought.

Now I have Little List the tiny computer, I might even be able to keep this up while I'm travelling, we'll see. So far, I've managed 3821 words today and 934 yesterday, so I'm 45% ahead of my target!
