I’ve been busy, as it usually goes, being all grad student-y and the like.  Usually when I get home at night I’m too tired to blog or dance or any such thing. My creative juices are sapped.  So I was intrigued at the idea of writing a novel, even a crappy one, in a month.  Hence, I’ve signed up for National Novel Writing Month, affectionately known as NaNoWriMo. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November.  Why not take those listless, late-night hours and churn out some hilariously bad science fiction?  Maybe that’ll jumpstart my inner creativity.  In any case, if you are a part of NaNaWriMo, feel free to be my writing buddy!  Tim is also participating, though he doesn’t much like to read. His theatre experience, however, gives him a much better handle on fiction writing than I have from writing scientific papers.  So, just a heads up, some Asimov-Clarke-Heinlein-Sagan inspired novelinity is coming your way…
