Let your Kirk brain take over!

“Spock, my display is down, I’m flying blind.”

“Captain, without your display compass, hitting your target destination is mathematically impossible.”

“Spock, if I get back, we really need to talk about your bedside manner.”


Welcome to November, everyone! After missing day 1 of NaNoWriMo, I made up for it with some rapid-fire typing during Scout’s nap today. I’m somewhere around 3500 words now, and I’m hoping to get a little more out before bed. Gotta get as much written while I’m still fresh, right? I get the feeling the fervor is going to die down after a couple of weeks.

By way of inspiration, I’m passing on a link to a fun article on fast-drafting a novel by Kristen Lamb. Basically, it wins the NaNo inspiration prize for comparing your writing brain to Kirk vs. Spock. So here’s to letting your Kirk brain take over! Write with guts, do the impossible, go forth and win NaNo!
