A logophile delinquent

So, I haven't posted much in the past month (10 posts in November, by my count). Sorry. One of those posts wasn't even a post. It was me saying I wouldn't post for a week because of a project I was working on. nano_08_winner_viking_100x100Well, that project is done. I was participating in NaNoWriMo, which challenges you to write a 50,000-word novel between Nov. 1 and Nov. 30. I did it, barely, hitting 50,162 words sometime around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning. What I wrote is a big mess, not anything like a finished work. But I did it, which is the whole point of NaNo. Not to write something good. Just to write. I wanted to know if I could do that. I can. Sweet.

Anyway, writing up to 3,000 words a day (to make up for days when I wrote nothing) really didn't leave me any time for the blog. But I'm done, so I'm back. Expect new Talk Wordy goodness starting tomorrow.
