Anyone who's been a follower for at least a year should remember me talking about it last year. It is pretty much amazing. National Novel Writing Month. You write a 50,000 word novel in a month. It might sound crazy, but I actually succeeded last year.
I was planning on boycotting this year, sadly, because I wouldn't have much time with a 5-week old baby. At 12pm today, twelve hours after it began, I said screw it and started writing. I'm almost 500 words in and I'm determined to at least get a few thousand words. And I learned I sometimes have an easier time coming up with a story if I just start writing without any kind of a plan.

My goodbye the day before NaNo started
So if I'm not writing much, it may be because I'm busy with the baby. Or it may be because I'm devoting any of my baby-free time to writing. Wish my luck on this insane writing adventure.
