If you’ve read “No Plot, No Problem!” written by the guy who got NaNo started in the first place, you might note that in the chapter on Week 2, he mentions there will be other ideas luring you away from your novel. And that it’s tempting to drop your first idea and chase those instead.
In my case, those ideas are often rabid ficbunnies.

*Head. Desk. Repeat.*
Ah well. I at least have the notes. Planning to try and finish other fics first, bunnies! Oy.
Still broke 24K. And the characters are about to deal with the splinters. Onward!
