There. I've done it. I've signed up for NaNoWriMo, the “National” Novel Writing Month. I'll be writing a 50,000 word novel through November.

It's going to suck. I must keep telling myself that. I'll have to keep that terrible, terrible perfectionist inside me under control. Quantity, not quality. Editing comes later.

Writing nearly one thousand six hundred and sixty seven words each day is not going to be easy. I will need your support and encouragement. I will need a kick in the butt when I'm about to give up. You can see my progress on my profile page.

I just registered an account on, a site where you build a photo blog by uploading one photo each day. My account name is ttc.

Like this blog, it is intended as a learning experience. I'm not sure I'll be posting each day. Let's see how it goes. Here is my very first blipfoto.

(I was told that one of the great things about blipfoto is the feedback you get, but I hadn't quite expected this much. Even though my photo has only been up for an hour or so, there are already 9 comments!)
