I've done this twice before, and won.  Hell, I wrote a novel in 2 weeks once.

So it shouldn't be hard this time around, should it?

It's going to be harder than usual, because I'm using brand new characters, an oddball plotline that I've stolen from another plotline of mine, and I'm attempting to turn stereotypes on their heads.  

I'm not doing research because I don't know what I'm researching (How to be a merc stuff, that's all I know).  The rest I'm pulling right out of a hat, and I'm not sure even if I can get away with it.

This, in addition to trying to keep up with a writing journal of sorts.  I never realized how difficult it is to write three and a half pages a day in a notebook.  I run out of things to say, and then it turns into a vent or a rant or nothing at all.  

I started writing something dark, based on the Sparks shooting, but then got scared and backed the hell away from that.  It's the whole reason why I collect newspaper articles and magazines about school shootings.

I could have done that, if I had access to guns.

Yes, little old gentle me, the quiet one in the back of the class, but the one who was always abused by the other kids in the class, the nerd, the freak, getting beat up by the bullies.  Every. Single. Year.  Throughout my entire school life.

And still I carry it with me, when I see people on Facebook from high school, it's like nothing happened.  They didn't know.  They didn't realize, and they didn't see.  They didn't realize what I hid.

Heh, this was going to be about how crazy I am for doing NaNoWriMo.  Maybe I should change the plotline and do the dark and evil Columbine-esque redux of a fiction novel.  It will be dark, foreboding, and angry.

Would anyone want to read it?  Or will it hit too close to some bones?

The End
