Namo amitabha Buddhaya, y'all.
This here's a religious establishment. Act respectable.

November cometh...

Meters swum today: 1350
Playing in the background: The soporific sound of the dryer

Well, gang, it's National Novel Writing Month again. If you haven't tried this you really should; it's fun. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Why? Well, because. Seriously, if you can write a novel in 30 days (and I assure you that you can; if I can do it, so can any reasonably well-trained orangutan) what else can you do? Heck, could be anything.

Here's my node. Check in on me from time to time, see if I'm keepin' up the old word count. What's my novel about? Why, it's about a Buddhist ghostbuster. I'm serious, it was all I could think of. I'll be posting excerpts there too.

Nope, No NaNoWriMo For MeYo. I have enough problems already.

I've been meaning to ask you--have you ever read Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light? Set on another planet, where the original colonists have set themselves up as the Hindu pantheon to rule over their impoverished offspring...except for one of the "First," Mahasamatman, who prefers to shorten that to "Sam," who leads the Buddhist revolt against Hindu heaven.

God, I wish I had ideas of that magnitude.
