Well, I don't do NaNo because the one and only time I tried, I got my first/worst case of writer's block ever. I think it is because the tenants of NaNo are very different from how I normally write. However, I've been poking around for the better part of a YEAR working on this bloody novel, and I want to finish it by the end of the year, so this is as good a time as any to commit to writing a certain amount every day.

The current WIP is an original story set in the 1950s. My characters have been assigned to work undercover as a married couple to investigate strange happenings in a suburb. It's Ward and June Cleaver meets the X-Files. It's a departure for me, and as such, I've been struggling with it. I'm 45 K into it and have a LOT more story to tell, and it's apparent to me I'm going to have to take a chainsaw to it at some point and do some heavy pruning. But first I have to write the damn thing.

I am resolutely (and reluctantly) avoiding fandom at the moment. No fandom for me until I finish this stinking draft.
