Today is November 1st.
And that can mean only one thing: the start of National Novel Writing Month.
And like many years gone past I will yet again attempt to write a novel.
Last year (as well as years before) I really didn't have a solid idea going into the month on what to write, so I never got very far. Part of that problem is that I have a hard time writing fiction. While I don't lack for ideas, I do however, lack the discipline to see these ideas through.
I said as much to Spring, and she suggested an idea I can get behind: to write a non-fiction book about a fictitious subject.
It's certainly a better idea than writing 50,000 fictitious words.
We'll see how far I get this year.

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
