It saps your strength. It takes away your social life. It steals time from your family and your work. It leaves messes in the kitchen and throughout your house. You will live on potato chips, chocolate and coffee. You will give up showering, combing your hair and brushing your teeth. You will not know what happened in the latest episode of your favorite show. You will however rack up points on your favorite online game. You won't know what's on the news, how your kids are doing in school or if your spouse is having an affair.
Nanowrimo is coming and it will be here for an entire month.
It is coming for you, the writer. The dreamer of dreams. The builder of worlds. The creator of creations.
It is in your best interest to be aware of the beast that it is.
