Long live the rebellion! I love that the good folks at National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) have embraced those of us who already have a work in progress. The cameraderie of the challenge—not to mention the awesome pep talks, fun badges, helpful (and frequently funny) forums—are hugely inspirational.

I could use some inspiration.

I have a lot of writing to do!

So here I am, using the NaNo cattle prod to pump out some volume, rebelliously attacking a current work in progress.

I never really think of myself as a rebel, but in this case I apparently qualify. I even have a badge to prove it. “You believe rules are meant to be broken. On November 1, you’ll start writing anything but a brand new novel.

On the bright side, I’m closer to typing those magical words, “the end,” than I thought I was, so maybe I’ll get  a chance to work on the Brand New Thing, too. Who knows?
