NaNoWriMo (http://nanowrimo.org): Crazy, stupid, or both?

My mother thinks I don't get enough sleep. She's probably right, but there are simply too many fun things to do and not enough time to do them unless I stay up past my bedtime.

So, since I'm already filling my time with lots of stuff to do, it only makes sense to take on yet another hobby. This hobby will be writing. Specifically, I intend to write a complete novel this November. It's all part of NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month. I've considered doing this for at least two years, maybe three, but have always come up with an excuse not to even attempt it. This year, I realized that there will never be a November for me that will be optimal for participating, so I just need to jump in feet first. I think I've convinced a buddy or two to participate, too, which will serve to help encourage me to stay on task.

So, between now and November, I guess I should come up with a plot. Or at least an idea for a plot.
