NaNoWebMo - Inventor's Log
The Life, Times, Thoughts, and Works of a Creative Young Man
I'm gonna try somethin' a little different this month. Presenting NaNoWebMo! National Novel... er... Web... Month. Okay, so the name needs work.

I attempted NaNoWriMo last year, with my idea "Cyan", about a blue-haired young man who wakes up with amnesia. I didn't write a single word during all of November. I wanted to actually succeed this year, but I couldn't decide on a story (Cyan's not appealing to me right now, and I have few other ideas). So I thought I'd like to accomplish something else during this November, like draw 30 pages of manga or some other unique task.

Today I finally made my decision. I've been working on and off on Forrester Labs for weeks, but I haven't gotten it worthy of showing off yet. So my goal, by the end of the month, is to write 50,000 lines of text, HTML, or PHP for the site. I'm not sure how realistic that is. When I get into it, a thousand lines or so is easy, but I'm not sure if I can do that every day for a month. Well, we shall see.

Here's my current progress meter for NaNoWebMo:

Not very impressive yet, huh? I'm gonna start coding after this post goes up. Wish me luck?

(Obligatory political note: I'm getting up early tomorrow to vote. I think we're gonna be alright.)

If you go with the comic what about NaNoComMo? for National November Comic Month or NaNoManMo - for National November Manga Month?
