Hello, all! I've been "meaning to start writing" for, oh, maybe a quarter-century now. Finally used this past NaNoWriMo as an excuse to declare that "someday" had arrived. I made the 50,000 words. It was 50,000 words of crap, but that's exactly what I needed to help get me past the fear of just writing already, dammit. Yes, I produced a large mass of horrible writing, and the universe didn't implode! So, I've finally started working on my writing.
