Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Hebrews 12:1 (context)
The time has come once more to bring your wandering attention to the issues that really matter: National Novel Writing Month.
Perhaps you have, in the last 11 months, forgotten my valiant but ultimately unsuccessful attempt to write 1,000 50-word sotries. Perhaps you have not known me long enough to have read snippets of my 2004 novel, Io’s Child. This year I will once more throw down the gauntlet, grip my keyboard firmly, and charge into the chaos that is NaNoWriMo.
