It's Encourage Rich Day

Rich M., college friend of sister Shannon and periodic Christmastime visitor thanks to the fact that our parents lived relatively close to each other, has a blog here. He has recently been blogging about the National Novel Writing Month, in which he's participating.

Rich is a smart, entertaining writer who's throwing himself with all his energy at the triple task of:
-- creating a novel that will satisfy his internal requirements of coherency and intelligence, and

-- forming the habit of writing every day, and

-- breaking the practice of editing (and shutting himself down) while he writes.

So go forth to Brain Squeezings, Rich's blog as conveniently linked above, and throw him some encouragement in his comments section!

Rich, if you're reading this, say hi to Atlanta for me.

Firstly, I hope your mood has improved!

Secondly, I can't remember the last time I dragged myself out of the house to go to some social thing I really didn't want to go to and didn't end up enjoying myself anyway. I don't know why that happens (either the not wanting to go part or the enjoying one's self anyway part), but I'm glad it usually works out!

This is a great thing, Megan. Rich and I had a long e-mail conversation around his book...specifically on eof the characters. Take a peek.

Thanks for the heads up Tripp -- I made my first visit to that conversation.

Ben, I don't know why that happens either. But I'm going to try to remember *that* it happens, for next time.
