So today's the first day of NaNoWriMo, and I have to say, I'm not really feeling the excitement this year. We're down at the beach for the long weekend. It's a nice day. There are dogs asleep at my feet. Perfect writing conditions. But so far this morning I've eated toast, done internetty things, written this blog post, organised a kris kringle and stared out the window. Maybe I just need to get into it.

Or maybe I should take the dogs for a walk.
