I may regret this come November 3rd - but I'm giving it a shot anyways.  Have I ever written a novel?  No.  Come to think of it, have I ever written any fiction, of any kind?  Nope - not even on my resume.  I figure if can get a crappy first draft out of my system during November, I'll at least find out if I enjoy fiction writing.  I may not find out if I'm good at it, but at least it will be out of my system.  Let's see what happens!

I'm off in search of a plot and maybe some characters.

(Has anybody done this before?  How does one accomplish this?)
