But NaNoWriMo has been very, very good to me in past years, and I'll pine for it if I don't have any involvement at all. Maybe if the local NaNo cultists do any write-ins, I'll show up and write along in solidarity.
Okay, how about this? I commit to the goal of having a complete rough draft of the Ria story by the end of November. I'll break out all the old NaNoWriMo tools and tricks, and post progress bars, the works.
Meanwhile, thanks to oaktavia for the pages from the 2004 astrological calendar. Now I know exactly how many days the plot will take to run from start to finish, and I have some dates to hang the incidents on.
