Winner! Back From The Dead Award

I signed up for Nanowrimo and then promptly decided to pretend it never happened.  I even sent out query letters (something I haven't done for months) because maybe, just maybe, I'd get a fabulous assignment that would work as an excuse as to why I'm not meeting the word count or would explain the mess of a story I'll be churning out.



In other words.  I'm in denial.  But hey, it's not like I've signed a contract or anything.  I don't have to do it.



Imagine my surprise when I open up the Sunday paper and read this.



Oh.



I guess I can't back out now.



So here I am, five days away from Nov. 1st, and all I have is an idea.  No outline.  No real plot to speak of.  I can't even decide on names for the characters.  Needless to say, I'm not the type to plan ahead.



This is hard.
